About Us

About Us

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

The Club runs over 100 events and trips a year.

Monthly Meetings

The monthly general meetings attract around 100 members and guests, and usually feature a guest speaker. Trip Leaders are asked to describe forthcoming trips, and after a refreshment break we have verbal reports on past trips. These are often hillarious, and can be supported by photographs, slide shows, videos and multi-media presentations.

Social Events

Social events have varied from major celebrations of club milestones like the 25th and 30th anniversaries, to dinner gatherings at restaurants, our annual Christmas in July, trivia nights and theatre nights.

Training

Training is a pre-requisite for trips above Grade 2. Training courses are published in the Training Calendar.

Trips

Trips are a major club activity, and range from day trips, weekend trips, week long adventures to places such as the Victorian High Country and long expeditions into the outback.

Trip Bookings

Members can log in to the members section of the website and check the Upcoming Trips and Events, and nominate for a place by using the links. Members can also apply for a place by contacting the trip leader.

Trip Proposals

Contact the Events and Trips Coordinator (trips@st4wdc.com.au) or use the on-line trip proposal form in the members’ section.
