The Port Hunter 4x4 Club invites you to discover all the benefits of membership. We welcome you to attend a meeting, tag along on a trip and have a chat with other members.

Why Join ?
The Club offers an opportunity for people with 4WD vehicles and interests in the outdoors to share their experiences and participate in recreational activities as a group. For the inexperienced this has the added advantage of providing an element of safety and eliminates the risk of being stuck in an isolated part of the bush by yourself.
Club members can obtain good discounts on products and services from many local sponsors.
As a member of the NSW & ACT 4WD, Port Hunter 4x4 Club is active in trying to prevent 4WD roads and tracks from being closed to responsible users.
Membership is open to all who are interested in the objectives of the club.
The Club's Objectives are designed to provide an overview of the Club's aims and are a guide to the behaviour expected of its members. You can read the Club's Objectives here.
