Our Club

The Central Highlands 4×4 Club was formed in 2001 by a group of people interested in 4 wheel driving and the great outdoors. We are a steadily growing club consisting of singles, couples and families.  As a club we promote a forum for the exchange of ideas and the involvement in activities associated with the ownership and operation of four wheel drive vehicles.  Central Highlands 4×4 Club is an affiliated member of Four Wheel Drive Victoria (FWDV) and actively support safe and responsible four wheel driving.

Club Trips

The club organises at least one trip a month led by a member of the club.  Trips vary from a day drive or overnight trip through to long weekends and week long trips.  Our travels in the past include trips into the Victorian High Country, The Otways, Simpson Desert, Fraser Island, Central Australia, Cape York, Kakadu and Tasmania whilst also spending time discovering areas close by like Tallarook, Toolangi and Mt Disappointment.  If you are an inexperienced off-roader we can offer help and guidance.  Whatever your skill level, vehicle capability or preference we have something for you.
