Understanding Community vs. Club

While All Terrain Action operates as a community, it’s essential to note that we are not registered as a 4WD or Motor Club. Our team shares personal experiences to assist and mentor novice four-wheel drivers during their adventures. While this is one approach to aid four-wheel drivers, recognising the advantages of joining a 4WD club is another valuable perspective.

Chris is a club member and serves as one of the Victorian representatives for the National 4×4 Club of Australia. He opted to engage with this club, acknowledging it as an excellent platform for off-road adventure enthusiasts across the country.

Being an officially registered automotive club, the National 4×4 Club of Australia shares similar mission objectives with All Terrain Action in promoting responsible 4WD activities. Membership in both the community and the club provides you the opportunity to explore the breathtaking Australian landscape while emphasising a steadfast commitment to environmental conservation and the continued sustainability of the camping and 4WD lifestyle here in Australia.
