Conservation. Access. Recreation. Enviroment
Through the C.A.R.E. program, the Four Wheel Drive Association QLD is able to provide privileged access to public and private lands on behalf of members. Underpinning the trust that provides access to Queensland’s most natural and beautiful areas, is the Association’s Code of Conduct – Off Road. Through recognition of responsible 4×4 driving, club members can develop important relationships with local rangers and managers, providing benefits and memories money simply can’t buy
Conservation: Through wise and responsible 4×4 driving, 4WD QLD aims to ensure the natural assets, which we all enjoy, is preserved, protected and managed appropriately.
Access: Key relationships with public and private landowners such as the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services (QPWS), HQ Plantation QLD, and State Government provides unequal authorised access to affiliated 4WD Clubs and Members.
Recreation: Having fun, making friends and enjoying all of the great outdoor activities in the states most precious places is just one benefit 4WD QLD aims to deliver to members. Whilst 4WD trips and touring is at the heart of recreational four wheel driving so is camping, fishing, navigating and exploring. Why sleep under five stars if you can sleep under 5,000!
Environment: Preserving the environment for the next generation to enjoy and explore is always front of mind for 4WD QLD. Through active community events and participation we aim to protect the environment and wildlife through responsible camping, Code of Conduct – Camping, and organised activities such as; the Fraser Island Clean Up, Adopt-a-Track, Eyes and Ears and general community clean ups.
Each 4WD Qld affiliated club is encouraged to nominate an environmental officer, to be their clubs representative on the C.A.R.E. subcommittee. Environmental officers from Queensland clubs are encouraged to attend subcommittee meetings conducted from time to time. All club representatives are also encouraged to liaise directly with their appropriate land managers. It’s an important role for every 4WD Club, therefore members are encouraged to participate and there is always support and guidance available.
Every 5 years, the C.A.R.E. Subcommittee signs a Memorandum of Understanding with QPWS. This is a platform allowing for a closer relationship between 4WD Qld affiliated Clubs and QPWS. At the core of this MoU is the ability of clubs to adopt tracks or areas within the QPWS estate. Clubs maintaining a closer relationship with all public land managers will allow for wider access to these areas for clubs.
The effectiveness of the C.A.R.E. subcommittee is linked to the reliability and quality of communication, so please keep in contact with the 4WD QLD CARE Representative at email@example.com.
