If we can get tickets purchased as soon as possible it will help us greatly with organising the event.
Also if anyone has any old photo's or stories that they would like to share that would be fantastic; it could be memorable trips, when we bought Talooge, any development at Talooge, or anniversary photo's of years gone by – please send them in.
Looking forward to a fantastic evening of memories, laughs and catching up with friends.
If you have any questions or wish to purchase tickets please contact the Membership Secretary on 0418 631 669 or by email email@example.com
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 400 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.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the 4WD NSW & ACT Association has recently entered into a revised Memorandum of Understanding for participation in NPWS approved volunteer activities. The new MOU replaces the original agreement from January 2007, and provides a framework for community participation in NPWS approved volunteer activities.
The MOU with the NPWS will hopefully provide mutual benefits for both parties, and help to maintain access to National parks for the 4WD community.

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.
Monthly meetings are held at the Canberra Deakin Football Club Grose Street, Deakin on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm. Visitors are very welcome.
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 Kimberleys. 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.
