ABOUT US

What can the Cockburn 4WD Club do for you?

The initial premise for establishing the Club was ‘family friendly, 4WD touring’. That clearly resonated with a lot of people. A family orientated club catering for family participation.

Although most members are from the Cockburn area, this is not mandatory. Membership of the Cockburn 4WD Club provides many advantages for 4WD owners. Organised trips in the company of people who have similar vehicles and interests. The advantages of travelling with a group of experienced four wheel drivers are many.

The Club has regular events including trips, social functions and training. Guest speakers at our bi-monthly meetings deliver presentations on a wide and varied range of subjects. The Club has knowledgeable and experienced drivers willing to help those new to four wheel driving. We are part of an Australia-wide insurance scheme that provides a wide range of protections when you’re out there four wheel driving.
