The Out and About 4×4 Club celebrated its 15th year anniversary in July 2020. It was founded as The Holden 4×4 Club of Western Australia in 2005 when a Jackeroo, Frontera or Rodeo was a member’s vehicle of choice.
Fast forward to 2012 and the Out and About 4×4 Club was formed when the members decided to open up the Club to the owners of all makes of four-wheel drive vehicles.
Our Club’s mantra is to foster a steady growth in membership and to maintain its friendly social culture in a safe and responsible four wheel driving environment.
We welcome all new members whether they be experienced four wheel drivers or inexperienced and new to the joys of off-roading and camping. Our experienced members are always willing to help with advice and training.
WHAT WE DO:
Although many of our members’ vehicles have been modified to make them more capable for touring and off road, we are not a hard core 4wd Club that seeks out the most difficult tracks to conquer. We are more about enjoying our four-wheel driving in a safe fun and responsible manner.
Day trips can vary from coastal and dune driving to challenging gravel tracks in the hills. Somewhere in between are the meandering minor roads and tracks taking in the scenery and wildflowers when in season.
Weekend trips are a regular feature on our calendar. Some involve touring and camping only, while others include some four wheel driving. Many of our trips are off road caravan and trailer friendly for those who have them as well as tent and swag. We may stay at a Caravan Park, a country station, the beach or an off the grid bush camp.
Past extended trips have included the Kimberley, Canning Stock Route, Connie Sue Highway, Holland Track, Goldfields, Gascoyne region, Karajini, Birdsville and the Simpson Desert. Future planning will include revisiting some of these areas as well as discovering new destinations to explore.
We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm at the Beechboro Scout Hall, Lot 17 Lord St, Caversham 6055 WA. Visitors are always welcome.
