4x4 Clubs In Western Australia.


What is a 4x4 club? Should I join one? What 4x4 Clubs are in Western Australia? If you’re asking one (or all) of these questions, we’ve got the answers right here!

4 wheel drivers from beginner to experienced can benefit from joining 4x4 clubs. The beginner will obviously learn their way MUCH quicker when surrounded by experienced my likeminded people. And the already experienced 4wder will be able to pass on their skills and enjoy meeting other people with the same interests.



What can I look forward to?

They open a lot of doors and opportunities for day trips, weekenders and multi day adventures. No longer are you trying to convince your friends to get a 4x4, you’ll be out there with people who already know the ropes.

Most 4x4 clubs (nearly all that we looked into) are family orientated, so you’ll have a great time whether you have kids or not.

All good 4x4 clubs share the same rules, tread lightly, take your own rubbish with you, never leave anything behind, keep left when possible and stay in convoy formation.

Club member or not, these are standard rules for any off-roading and anyone ignoring these rules should be banned from 4WDing!!



How to get into 4x4 clubs.

Most clubs require you to apply for membership or to be invited by an existing member. Some require that you show up for a number of meetings at the scheduled meeting area listed on their website.

4x4 clubs may have limited space for members; others have heaps and are open to all who wish to join.



How much do 4x4 clubs cost?

Some 4x4 clubs charge membership fees and others are free to join. Membership fees are usually to cover the cost of running the club and insuring all the members. They are rarely to make a profit.



Which 4x4 club should I join?

There are clubs aimed at specific vehicle types (4x4 vans, AWD vehicles, compact 4x4s). Some clubs are specific to vehicle make. Toyota, Nissan, Subaru etc. Some even go to specific models such as Nissan Patrol and Toyota Landcruiser clubs. These clubs are great for tips and hints on modding your 4x4 as all members have the same or very similar vehicle.

Other 4x4 clubs are specific on the type of 4WDing they enjoy like touring, easy weekend tracks, or hard core weekend warriors.

The best way to decide which one suits you is to check out our links below and find out more through their website. Consider attending a meeting or two and getting to know the people and what they’re into.


Pros and Cons About 4 Wheel Drive Club: 

There are plenty of pros:

     No trip planning stress. The club handles planning and routes, you just show up with a tank full of fuel and your food for the weekend.

     Meeting people with the same passion. It might be hard to swing your mates around to 4wding, but it’s not going to be hard making friends who already share the interest.

     You’ll have travel companions! This could even turn into lasting travel friendships outside of the club.

     Learn new skills. Even experienced members will learn plenty.

     Discover new places. Including those not marked on any map!

     Always someone around to help with repairs or recoveries.



The cons:

     Traveling in big groups means it can be slow going, especially on the harder tracks

     Constantly having to use your recovery gear. Having your own recovery gear is one of the most highly enforced rules, but it does sometimes occur that yours is always in use

     Clubs can be quite regimented. This doesn’t apply to all of them, but some clubs may not be the relaxed experience you’re after



Are we at 4 Wheeling Australia member of a club?

The answer to that is yes and no. Yes, if you consider our website team as a club! But no, we are not part of any other clubs run by anybody else. The reason for this is we want to run the website without being locked into one club, we want to try and meet as many people and clubs as possible.

We HAVE joined other clubs on day trips from time to time and every trip so far has been well organised, and we particularly enjoy the camaraderie on the tracks with everyone looking after everyone else, both members and non-members.
