Welcome to Southern Tablelands 4 Wheel Drive Club



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

Greg provided a detailed outline of fire safety when traveling
in the bush. He also presented information on how to deal with 
vehicle fires, how to prepare if you are caught in a bush fire
as well as outlining the fire warning system that operates
throughout the country. He advised members of an incredibly
useful Phone App called FIRES NEAR ME which lists all current
fires throughout Australia and their current state.

Club Trips

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.

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 Kimberley. 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.
