About Us

Our Purpose & Commitment to Members

The Four Wheel Drive Association Queensland is the peak body representing the common interests of four wheel drive owners and club members across Queensland. We recognise the passion our members have across many great outdoor activities, therefore we strive to build strong and supportive communities for like-minded people across our great State.

We engage with Government to lobby our advocacy agenda particularly on topics such as track access and vehicle modifications. We deliver four wheel drive training and education to ensure safety and knowledge sharing is always front of mind. Supporting our 4WD member clubs is important to our success.

We provide this through good governance, good systems, financial health, communication and the commitment of our people. By doing so, we seek to offer the most relevant products and services to our members at the most affordable price.
