The first club meeting was held in November 1977 by a group of seven families who all owned 4wd vehicles.
They felt that there was a need to form a club that would organise training as well as sight-seeing.
From the beginning, a very sound set of procedures was established for the running of the club, including a constitution, convoy procedures, trip rules, club emblem, etc… After more than 40 years these are still in force.
Even back in the early days, many trips were arranged covering places as a far afield as the Goldfields, Avon Valley, Pinnacles, Herne Hill, Stirling Dam and Moore River. Recently,extended trips have ventured to New Zealand and Tasmania. Check out our trips to see what has been happening.
Specific 4wd Awareness courses have been established, these are conducted twice yearly for CLUB MEMBERS ONLY. Topics include all types of 4wdriving and recovery, responsibilities for Trip Leaders and Tail End Charlie, radio and convoy procedure. We also adhere to a strong environmental code of ethics.
We have a broad membership base covering a wide range of age groups, with a strong leaning towards family oriented activities. Many members have developed a high level of skill at handling their 4wds and are willing to assist newer, or less experienced members – a distinct advantage of belonging to a club.
