Jackaroo 4WD Club of Australia
Our forum and the Jackaroo 4WD Club of Australia has reached an agreement to exchange links and promote each other (thanks to Alan - rescue1 for arranging this with the Jackaroo club and Wal Phelps the Jackaroo Club Secretary)
Here is a little bit of background about the Jackaroo Club:
The Jackaroo 4WD Club of Australia Inc. was established in 1983 and was the first "Jackaroo 4WD Club" in Australia. Although based in Sydney, we have members in the Illawarra, the Blue Mountains and the Newcastle and Central Coast areas as well as interstate in Brisbane. We welcome owners/drivers with all levels of experience from "beginners" to "experienced", and are a family friendly club with quite a few members with young families. We are affiliated to 4WD NSW and ACT. We fully support and abide by their Code of Ethics. We respect both our vehicles and the environment and could, in no way be considered 'gung-ho' or 'bush-bashers'.
We are a medium sized, family friendly club with a growing membership, currently around 75. We organise and lead at least one trip each month, either on Saturdays or Sundays, or two or three day camping trips, plus occasional extended trips to various outback locations. These trips will have varying degrees of difficulty, to suit the varying level of driver experience within the Club. The Club also organises BBQ's, picnics and other social outings for club members. We also, from time to time, organise mid-week trips for those members who cannot make the week-end trips. Club trips provide a means of gaining experience and confidence to tackle outback tracks while in the company and safety of other members and also the opportunity to see vehicle accessories and camping equipment etc. in use before purchasing your own.
Our club has many lady members who actively participate in club events including driver training, trips, Committee and monthly meetings.
We do not restrict membership to Jackaroo owners; all makes and models of Four Wheel Drive vehicles are welcome.
