Australian Recreational Motorists Association

Australian Recreational Motorists Association Inc. (ARMA) was formed in September 2019. Our name captures the essence of our organisation – a unified, powerful community dedicated to the preservation, enrichment and enjoyment of Australia’s most treasured places. Created by a group of citizens dedicated to opening public lands up to all recreational users and fighting to ensure legislation does not impede their legitimate recreational activities.


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.
