About our Club

club

The Overland Four Wheel Drive Club of SA was first established back in 1975 as the Landrover Owner’s Club of South Australia. We believe one of the first four wheel drive clubs to be registered in South Australia. The Club name has evolved through a number of changes which clearly reflect the changing nature of the Club. Firstly to the Landroving Club of SA and finally to the current name – The Overland Four Wheel Drive Club of SA Incorporated. In days gone by you had to own a Landrover to become a member, but today ownership of any four wheel drive is a great start.

Meetings
General Meetings of the club are generally held on the first Friday of each month (except January). However meeting dates sometimes alter due to clashes with long weekends and Public Holidays.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome at our General Meetings.

The Annual General Meeting is held in December and follows immediately after the General Meeting.

2018 General Meeting dates: Feb 2, March 2, April 6, May 4, June 1, July 6, August 3, September 4 (Tuesday – Ray’s Outdoors), October 5, November 2, December 7. December meeting will also include the AGM.

Our General Meetings start at 8.00pm and feature reports from many of our club officers (Treasurer, Secretary, Trips Officers, Training Officer Association Units etc) and very often a guest speaker. The meeting is followed by a coffee and an informal chat session. These meetings generally last 2-3 hours.

The club meets at: Pooraka Farm Neighbourhood House, Henderson Avenue, Pooraka.

Our postal address is: Overland 4WD Club, PO Box 536 Enfield Plaza SA 5085.

The official Club name is: Overland 4WD Club of SA Incorporated.

A bit about usMembers participate in a variety of club activities ranging from General Meetings, day trips, social events and training weekends through to expeditions that take in areas such as the Victorian High Country, The Canning Stock Route, The Simpson Desert and far off Cape York to name but a few.

On occasion, the General Meeting is followed by a ‘Meet & Greet’ drive. This drive is a great way for prospective members to meet club members and to get a feel for procedures, like driving in convoy and using a UHF radio.
