Hi folks.

I have been tinkering with joining a 4x4 club and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions, around Melbourne (Westside).
Ideally I am looking for one that offers some sort of training, has friendly folks and regular trips.
If anyone has advice on what’s good & what’s not in the area I would be grateful.


Cheers

So that'll give you an idea of how the clubs present themselves.
Then the deal normally is that you attend a few meetings and go on a couple of trips to see if there's a social fit. It's good idea to check out a few if possible since there are different things that clubs value.

Get on the trip section and go on some drives, meet a group that you get on with and the rest is .........Posted in the trip reports section :D:D

I'm a member of 2 clubs and have been in another.
What's a good club for me may not be for another as interests and needs vary, but in general a good club will
* have formal or informal induction for a newbie to integrate them into the social life of the club
* have both a social and a trips program advertised well in advance so you can plan and can work your leave to suit
* have a variety of trip types and length
* have a driver training program
* run workshops on recovery and demonstrate the various recovery tools (and as there are choices you'll save yourself money getting the tools that work for you)
* may have a discount scheme for parts and accessories purchases
* likely have other owners of wagons like yours whose brains you can pick

Some drivers like pushing themselves and their vehicles to the limit, others are out there to enjoy the scenery and company. That's why you start as a visitor/provisional member, to see if their pattern will work.
