About Us

 

We are a diverse club full of characters with various 4 wheel drives, caravan and camping setups to match, and yes glampers included.

Our trips range from light-hearted socials like sitting around the fire and easy touring, right through to difficult tracks. These outings can be trips of a single day, a weekend or multi-week treks. Recent trips have seen us venture across the Simpson Desert, The Cape and more recently the Victorian High Country. 2021 sees the club explore/ navigate The Kimberly.

There is no pressure ever to do more than you are comfortable with.
 
Kids are an important part of our club and will very often join in the friendly banter and play practical jokes on the “Big Kids”. Of course, the big kids will then retaliate and we are often in stitches watching Mums and Dads relive their childhood as they reconnect with their children without the distractions of technology.
