About Us

Go Bush 4WD club (inc) was formed in October 2004, by a group of 6 four-wheel-driving enthusiasts. The club was incorporated on 4th Feb 2005 (registration number A1012031K). All but 2 of these founding members are still in the club, and 2 are still on the committee, as detailed on our Honour Board. The aim of this club is to create a small club of family oriented people, who enjoy going recreational 4WDing, camping, caravaning, touring, hiking, fishing & other outdoor activities, as a means of an escape from today’s busy lifestyles. Our aim is to make this club as casual as possible, meaning very few meetings, and the meetings themselves should be primarily a social function, with the official business taking up only a small portion of the time. We want to enjoy socialising with a minimum of political fuss, making it really just a way of formalising a group of friends enjoying the great outdoors. A means of us all sharing stories / 4WD tips / destination ideas / travel experiences etc with a bunch of like minded individuals.

As we are a family based club, we want to encourage a non-smoking environment, and so we have written our Smoking Policy (Yes, you can still join the club if you are a smoker). We also have a Dog Policy to set guidelines for bringing your Dog on club events. As we usually have kids present on our club functions & trips, we also try to keep swearing to a minimum. We adhere to our Code of Ethics and Safety standards too.

We follow the Tread Lightly philosophy, so as to be as environmentally friendly as possible. That is, that we stick to defined tracks, engage 4WD as soon as we leave the bitumen and let our tyres down when on soft surfaces to minimise wheelspin, protect the vegetation and wildlife etc. Although some of our member’s 4WD’s are modified for better off road performance (off-road tyres, lifted suspension, dif-locks etc), we are definitely not a bunch of hard core rev-heads. In fact, most of the upgrades to our vehicles were to enable better towing of our caravans! So, if your 4WD is a hard-core heavily modified beast, then our club is probably note the best fit for you.

Our club makes extensive use of the internet. The club’s primary means of communications is via this web site, with all relevant items, including upcoming trips etc, being posted on the various web pages. All financial members of our club will also have access to our Group email facility, which means that you can send a single email which will be distributed to all financial members. When sending emails to the club, we suggest that they are related to 4WDing / outdoor activities, as we do not want to be swamped with junk emails, and anyone who sends such emails will be removed from the group pronto!
