What can the Cockburn 4WD Club do for you?

The Cockburn 4WD Club is a ‘family friendly, 4WD touring’ organisation - a family orientated club catering for family participation.

Although most members are from the Cockburn area, this is not mandatory. Membership of the Cockburn 4WD Club provides many advantages for 4WD owners. Organised trips in the company of people who have similar vehicles and interests. The advantages of travelling with a group of experienced four wheel drivers are many.

The Club has regular events including trips, social functions and training. Guest speakers at our bi-monthly meetings deliver presentations on a wide and varied range of subjects. The Club has knowledgeable and experienced drivers willing to help those new to four wheel driving. We are part of an Australia-wide insurance scheme that provides a wide range of protections when you’re out there four wheel driving.


The Cockburn 4WD Club uses Facebook to alert its members and the general public of upcoming events. Please like and follow the Cockburn 4WD Club's Page on Facebook to keep up to date with future events.




Taking Photographs for Trip Reports

However, a little planning will help save you a lot of time in ‘processing’ your photographs after you return home. And they will be more useful […]

Ledge to Wedge

This Beach Run was the one that would complete the journey from Lancelin to Cervantes. It was not to be. A fourth attempt will need to be made in the future. We went on to the sand at Ledge Point. Though damp, the sand was very soft and deep. Vehicles were struggling from the outset. […]

To Shoemaker Crater

There are easier places to reach than the exact geographical Centre of Western Australia, however, the desire to be the first to accurately determine this unique and iconic location made it an attractive and compelling destination. To be clear, we were not the first to travel to this vicinity, however, we were the first to […]
