Sadly the program is in recess until further notice.

Looking to explore new horizons and advance your skills and knowledge? This weekend forum offers advanced 4WD instruction on difficult regional trails that are way Beyond the Bitumen, yet allows time to take in the scenery in one of the State’s most photogenic locations. Add an overnight stay at a historic sheep station and you’ve got the makings of a top weekend of learning and fun!

Our first day is spent examining the secrets of successful Outback driving. We journey to Orroroo and our comfortable overnight farm stay (that night you’ll enjoy a quality BBQ dinner provided by the Adventure 4WD team). As the day progresses, you’ll tackle difficult trails that run from the valley floor to their lofty heights. Sunday sees us learning even more skills with a journey into the higher points of the Bendleby Ranges. You’ll discover the nature of the trail, assess the risks and hazards, pick the right gear and 4WD range and all the while marvel at the beauty of the views from nearly a kilometre high. At strategic moments we’ll employ recovery tools to extract stuck vehicles, if required.

Fun for all the family and recommended for anyone who may be planning an Outback expedition in the ranges, Weekend Walkabout is the best preparation to explore.
