You don't have to own a Nissan Patrol to join us!
If you have a 4WD vehicle and enjoy getting "out and about" then why not check us out. The club was founded in 1979, with the main aim to provide a common meeting place for individuals and families with similar interests in four wheel driving and associated activities.
More Fun More Safely
Our members like having fun. Many of us have caravans, boats, canoes and other fun-type paraphernalia, most of us like to travel around Australia on trips both near and far, but all of us have four wheel drive vehicles.
Furthermore, we have all learned to drive them properly. So when we go on trips where really fun places are off the beaten track, we can park our vans or campers and carry on. We do not have to miss anything!
Within our club we have our own driver trainers and assessors and we regularly hold sand-driving activities. We also teach our members mud-driving, rock climbing, water-crossing, snatching, etc., but not regularly. Correct, safe driving techniques are mandatory – the fun just follows naturally.
Our club runs many trips each year, some of which are for trying out our four-wheel driving skills, but many are simply to visit new places and see new things.
We meet on the first Thursday of each month from February to December at the Challa Gardens School in Humphries Tce., Kilkenny. Meetings start at 7.30 pm. and usually finish by 9.30 pm with a BYO supper. If you have a 4WD we would love to meet you and have you join us having more fun more safely.
