Four Wheel Drive Victoria is the peak body representing four wheel drive interests in Victoria..
Adopting the mantra of "Driving in a sustainable environment" Four Wheel Drive Victoria has established itself in the modern four wheel drive environment having regard to the interest of protecting and caring for the land in which we tour, supporting the communities through which we travel and contributing to the State's economic wealth in excess of $120 million dollars annually.
Victoria contains some of the best four wheel driving in Australia and is the only state that can offer easy access to a diversity of four wheel drive tracks that encompass experiences ranging from desert to mountain snow.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria has also developed and maintains excellent and ongoing relations with the state's land managers and plays an active part in ensuring that tracks are accessible and used in a way that minimizes any negative impact from four wheel drive use.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria is the umbrella body for affiliated four wheel drive clubs in Victoria, and represents the interests of all recreational four wheel drivers in the state. It is presently made up of some 88 clubs which in turn have a membership totaling over six thousand subscribed members representing four wheel drive enthusiasts and their families.
Each affiliated club is invited to have a say in how the Association operates through regular meetings, contact with the elected board, or assisting on the various supporting sub committees.
Operating from a staffed office in Mitcham, we represent almost every active four wheel drive club in Victoria and the number of clubs is growing constantly.
Four Wheel Drive Victoria continues to develop strong relationships with the government and its land managers and has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the state government, Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to ensure effective consultation and involvement in track access and maintenance issues. This has created a much stronger working relationship with land managers and rangers.
Victoria is now officially recognised as the Premier Four Wheel Drive State with the creation of the Minister's Victorian 4WD Strategy 2017 - 2021 which lays down key strategies and funding for land managers and Four wheel Drive Victoria to build stronger partnerships, provide a better 4WD experience, effective education, with strategic marketing and communications and sustainable solutions.
We acknowledge and respect Victorian Traditional Owners as the original custodians of Victoria’s land and waters, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices.
