Club events have been few and far between for the first 5 months of the year, but we have manage to get in a couple of great long weekend trips in April and May

First was our Easter weekend where we hosted our friends from the Gold Coast 4wd Club at the Curra property.


Then in May we headed to Fraser for 4 days to participate in the 21st annual 4wd Qld Fraser Island Cleanup.


Check out our trip reports in Club News and Club Photos to see what we got upto.
