The club was established in 1986 and now has around 87 member families.We are a family oriented club which promotes safe and sensible four wheel driving and the enjoyment of our natural environment.
We welcome all brands of 4WD’s however Mitsubishi Pajero’s are driven by the majority of members. Other members drive Toyota Landcriusers, Nissan Patrols or Landrovers. As we mostly drive larger 4WDs with dual range, the majority of our trips aren’t suited to “soft roaders” as low range 4WD is considered necessary.
We are affiliated with the Four Wheel Drive Association of Western Australia which is the peak body for 4 wheel drive clubs in WA.
Each month we try to conduct a day trip close to Perth as well as having many weekend and longer trips. Typical day trips include Dwellingup, Wilbinga, Lancelin, Mundaring and Sawyers Valley. Weekend trips include Margaret River, Eastern Wheatbelt, Cervantes, Jurien etc. Longer trips conducted recently include the Kimberleys, Simpson Desert, Canning Stock Route, Karijini and the Goldfields.
Our club does volunteer environmental work with the Department of Conservation and Land Management, particularly on the Leschenault Peninsula near Bunbury where we visit at least twice each year and Wungong National Park in Byford.
Our meetings are held at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) at the Manning Senior Citizens Centre located at 3 Downey Drive, Manning. You will find a map here.
Member subscriptions are currently $110 per year per family. A once-off $55 nomination fee is also payable upon application of membership. Social Memberships are $77.00 per year and corporate memberships are $110 per year. Prior to applying for membership we ask people to attend at least 4 events, this can be made up of two meetings and two club trips or 3 trips and 1 meeting etc. This gives you a chance to see if our club suits you as well giving us a chance to get to know you.
