G’Day and welcome to the Coffs Harbour 4WD Club website. We are a social based club who share the same passion (4 wheel driving). Whether you are a family or single, we cater for all ages and driving capabilities, with each member contributing to the club with their experience in many different fields. The club has been in operation for over 30 years, with some of the original founders still active members to this day. We operate as a non profit organisation purely for the enjoyment of our members.
Our meetings are held once a month at Coffs Harbour Yacht Club on the third Wednesday of each month beginning at 7:30pm. We run a couple of trips a month which are led by volunteer club members with varying trip gradings to suit all drivers. The club also runs longer excursions such as trips to Cape York, Victorian High Country and Simpson Desert to name a few. The Social Committee endeavour to hold at least four social events every year including the Club Christmas party which is family orientated.
We pride ourselves in raising money and donating it to charities like the Children’s Hospital in Coffs, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and The Royal Flying Doctor Service. Annual fees are $60.00 per family which includes a Driver Awareness day. This is compulsory for all members and takes about half a day, teaching the safe use of 4WD’s and recovery techniques. All participants learn a load of practical and useful information and reinforcing their safety based four wheel driving knowledge.
The Club’s newsletter is distributed monthly, usually by email to all members. This contains the minutes of the last meeting, upcoming events, trips, reports, committee contact details etc.
All in all, a good family based club based on the love of four wheel driving.
