About the Land Rover Club of the ACT
The Land Rover Club of the Australian Capital Territory (LRC ACT) is a family-oriented social and recreational club established in 1969 by a group of Land Rover enthusiasts. Nowadays, the club welcomes owners of all makes of four wheel drive vehicles, not only Land Rovers.
The club’s aim is to promote safe and responsible four wheel driving, consistent with the code of ethics and principles endorsed by the Australian National Four Wheel Drive Council (ANFWDC), as well as respect for the Australian environment and its cultural heritage.
Club members participate in various day, weekend and extended trips, as well as social and community activities. The club serves as a friendly forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience related to four wheel driving. Improving driver skills through formal training, along with associated activities such as map reading, navigation, bushcraft and the correct use of 4WD recovery equipment, underpins club activities. We support a number of charities that are aligned to our core activity.
Our core activity is four wheel drive trips which vary from one day or weekend adventures in the local region to journeys of some weeks duration to places such as Central Australia, the Simpson Desert, Cape York and the Kimberleys. Trips cater for the novice through to the experienced driver. All Club trips are conducted over existing roads and tracks, and are organised to avoid potentially dangerous situations and to take account of prevailing weather and track conditions.
