Four Wheel Drive Australia
Formed in 1978 as the Australian National Four Wheel Drive Council, Four Wheel Drive Australia is the peak body representing the state four wheel drive associations at the national level. Four Wheel Drive Queensland is one of the founding members of the Australian National Four Wheel Drive Council.
The Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF), was formed in 1996 as a coalition of outdoor recreation groups to represent and advocate on behalf of the outdoor industry.
Today, QORF is the peak industry body representing the interests of outdoor recreation users in Queensland. QORF champions the value of outdoor recreation and seeks to encourage this opportunity for all.
Four Wheel Drive Queensland is an active member of QORF. We have previously had members act in positions on the management committee of the organisation and continue to work closely with them today.
QORF was established to assist with the communication between the different users groups at all levels of government. They represent a diverse community of interest groups and encourage discussion between these groups on the issues affecting the sector.
The Australian 4WD Industry Council
Via Four Wheel Drive Australia, Four Wheel Drive Queensland works with the Australian 4WD Industry Council. Four Wheel Drive Australia has representation in this council’s management committee.
This is a specialist group within the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association and who lead the campaign against the proposal to ban bull-bars in Australia.
They work to promote and facilitate growth in the industry; provide specific regulatory advice; identify opportunities, future trends and technologies, promote networking within the 4WD Council members and promote road safety and sanctioned off-street 4WD motor sport events.
