NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19.
With conditions now easing, we are now running new trips. YEA!!!
As more new trips are planned, check back here for latest news on up-coming trips.
Driver training will be in May with Theory and Practical work covered over the assigned weekend..
This course is FWDVIC’s proficiency course with 4 hours of theory and full day of practical training. The course is designed for beginners onwards and will arm you with the skills to tackle most 4wd scenarios safely. The location for the Theory component will be advised to participants once confirmed.<!--
We will be staying in Erica and will be utilising tracks around Thompson Dam and Merringtons Camp Ground.-->
There will be the usual day drive and skill consolidation on Sunday that is open to all club members.
The aim of this trip is to introduce members to snow driving in the High Country.
We drive into O'Tooles Campground on the Friday night and drive a loop to the summit of Mt. Selma and back to O'Tooles on the Saturday. Big camp fire to ward off the cold on Saturday night!
Sunday gives attendees the option of some sightseeing and walking around the gold mining areas and relics of the area or more 4x4ing in the area. Final track selection is dependant upon the weather and snow depths! Track standards vary from medium (Blue) to difficult (double black). So often the party is divided into two groups to cater for various experience levels and vehicle capabilities. Specialist off road camper trailers are OK for this trip and it is a dog friendly event – Due to the nature of the location, we cannot bring caravans.
NOW CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 CONDITIONS.
A three week trip with 2 weeks camping on Flinders Beach on North Stradbroke Island, Queensland. We are camped on the beach with basic toilet facilities but no showers, fresh water or power at the campsite. All facilities including fuel supermarkets, water hotels medical are available with a 5km beach drive. The focus is on relaxing, fishing, walking and enjoying the campfire at night. The return journey usually have a secondary focus – last year it was the Artesian Bore Bath track in Northern NSW. Trip standard is easy as beach driving is mainly limited to low tide when the sand is very hard. Caravan, camper and dog friendly.
