Welcome to Southern Tablelands 4 Wheel Drive Club

The Southern Tablelands 4WD Club Inc is based in Canberra and is the largest 4WD club in the region. The club was established in 1976. We have about 450 members, and the club's activities cater for traditional (high clearance) 4 wheel drive vehicles.

Improving driver skills through training is an important aim of our club, and we offer a range of driver education courses at basic and advanced levels. Basic training for novices is a prerequisite for participation in most club trips, while the advanced training is recommended for drivers when they have gained more experience and want to develop competence and confidence in negotiating more challenging terrain.

Why not attend a club meeting to find out more? The best time may even be before you have made your vehicle selection! Enjoy your visit to our Web site and we welcome any questions you may have. You can find further information about membership here, or contact our membership secretary via email at membership@st4wdc.com.au

May Driver Training Course

The May Driver Training Course was great success with 12 new members completing the Course. The weekend saw the usual training opportunities with theory immediately followed by lots of practice on the offset mounds to demonstrate and experience suspension travel, time of the easier slopes getting a handle on the new driving skills and finally a great time on a range of varied tracks practicing driving techniques.  Of course there was also time to enjoy the wonderful country side and share a laugh with new friends.

Learning how to use a snatch strap safely
Getting the "good oil" from the instructors
Testing the suspension on the off set mounds
Putting theory into practice & checking the track first
And then onto something a bit more difficult
The happy crew

Club Trips

The club owns a 770 hectare bush property in a picturesque valley near Bredbo, about 65 kms south of Canberra. This property has been developed for driver training, camping, and club social activities. Club members and their families have year-round access to this facility for anything from day trips to extended periods.

We run a range of trips throughout the year, including one-day or weekend trips to the Brindabellas, Snowy Mountains, the south coast and the central highlands, through to longer trips to the Victorian high country, Cape York, Simpson Desert, or the Kimberley. These trips, together with a range of social events, are all planned to provide club members with safe, enjoyable and rewarding recreational experiences. We encourage family involvement in all Club functions including Basic Driver training.
