History of the Brisbane 4wd Club

On the 9th June 1970 a group of Land Rover Owners and enthusiasts met at Annand & Thompson's premises at Newstead to form the Land Rover Owners Club of Australia, Brisbane Branch.

 

In May 1972, the name of the Club was changed by constitutional amendment to The Brisbane Land Rover an All four Wheel Drive Club to enable owners of all makes of four wheel drive vehicles to be eligible for membership.

 

In December 1976, the club name was changed to Brisbane Four Wheel Drive Club and in February 1977, an entirely new constitution was adopted.

 

From humble beginnings of twenty-eight members, the club has grown as high as two hundred members and currently averages around seventy members per year. Over the years almost every conceivable make and model of four-wheel drive vehicle has taken part on club trips.

 

In October 1986, the club became an incorporated body thus a new constitution was adopted. The name was the changed and still remains. "The Brisbane Four Wheel Drive Club Inc." In September 1997, in an effort to upgrade the club's image to that of the family orientated, camping and four wheel drive club, members adopted a new logo.

 

In September 2009, the Club amended its Constitution to bring it into line with the latest version of the Incorporations Act and as a result amended its By-laws as well. In 2010 the Club was proud to celebrate 40 years of existence. Congratulations to all past and present members on this magnificent achievement.

 

The Management Committee wish all its members, new and old, safe and happy four wheel driving experiences in the future.
