4wd vehicle sustainability for membership

Suitable 4WDs

Some 4WD or all-wheel drive vehicles may not be capable of successfully completing our training course, either due to lack of a low range drive or axle articulation and road clearance. These would thereby not qualify for Club membership. Enquiries to the Membership Secretary can clarify whether your vehicle is in this category. All other vehicles, regardless of make, are welcome to join. Many of our members do not drive Toyota vehicles.

Basic 4WD Training

Once a Membership Application is accepted, it remains provisional until the Basic Four Wheel Driving Course is successfully completed, within three months of joining the Club. This course is free of charge, consisting of three modules, conducted over two days and one evening, for both the member and their partner.

On course completion, you will then be qualified to drive on the Club properties and on Club trips.

Willowglen Challenge Reviews

  • On behalf of the ACT All Terrain Club, I’d like to say thanks for continuing to putting on another great Willowglen Challenge weekend. Willowglen is one of the standout 4WD events that will, hopefully, be around for many years to come. I would also like to say thanks to the Challenge Committee, Stage Marshalls, Officials, Recovery Crews and all those involved. The amount of time and effort that goes into running such an event in not lost on the competitors, and we all really appreciate it. If it wasn’t for that time and effort, there wouldn’t be a Willowglen. We are already looking  forward to next year

  • WOW WOW WOW, what another great 2019 Willowglen event.

    The Blue Mountains 4WD Club would like to thank you for all the time and efforts putting on an amazing event. Your club Volunteers are truly valuable to the 4wd Community and cannot be thanked enough for their time and efforts.

    What really stood out this year was the help and assistance from all clubs with parts, welders, equipment and manpower when needed in keeping truck on the tracks.

    We all hope you had as much fun as we did and look forward to 2020.

    Again, thank you.

  • Just wanted to say well done to the TLCC organising committee, the volunteers, marshals & yourself who have all excelled once again in what we have found to be one of the best run competitions of professional standards in NSW. From both a competitor & spectator point of view, the Macarthur Club members appreciate all the time & effort that goes into the preparation & running an event of this calibre, by your tremendous hard working body of volunteers. We loved every aspect of it all & we look forward to next year already. Please pass on our huge thanks to the Willowglen team on our behalf.

  • Another awesome Willowglen weekend run and done!! 3 days of great driving and, more importantly, spending time with friends and family.

    On behalf of the Shellharbour 4WD - a massive THANK YOU to the Toyota Land Cruiser Club of Australia for all your hard work planning, preparing and running another great weekend!! We know there's a huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to make this weekend happen and we're all very grateful that you all make the effort and put in the time to run it each year. Lets hope it's around for years to come.

    A huge thanks to our Shellharbour team - the boys worked hard, and had some fun, all weekend and they all had some awesome drives. Very proud of you all.

    Thanks also to all the other competitors - what a great group of people to wheel and camp with. Some amazing friendships have been made through this sport and, especially through this event. Congratulations to the winners, place getters and everyone who competed. Bring on 2020 - Shellharbour is keen!!

  • To our fellow Competitors – thanks for another great weekend. To be with a group of likeminded people, many of whom have become good friends, enjoying a sport we all love – what better way to spend a few days!! And to see competing teams supporting each other, cheering each other on, offering help when needed and sharing a few laughs at the end of the day is pretty cool.    Belinda
