About Us.

The Nissan Patrol Four Wheel Club of NSW and ACT Inc. was established in 1976 by a group of four wheel drive enthusiasts, interested in pursuing common interests and activities, and aiming to give the Nissan Patrol its own standing. No longer limited to only Nissan Patrols, membership is open to all types of four wheel drive and all ages – both people and vehicles!

We are very excited to be approaching our 50th Anniversary in 2026 and will be hosting events for all past and present Club members and those that would like to join us around October 2026.

The Club owns and operates our 233acre (94ha) property near Goulburn for members to use at any time for camping and getting away.  Equipped with a large Shed and open fireplace, toilets, hot showers and a generator to power the property, it’s a great asset for the club and shows its strength and member commitment.

Once you become a club member you have access to our property. The Land is used for the Club’s extensive Driver Training Program which not only covers 4WD training but also vehicle set up, bush maintenance, trip planning and the use of chainsaws & other equipment.  We have an old vehicle that gets rolled over and recovered as part of our Advanced Recovery Training.

The atmosphere is one of fun and friendship attracting a wide variety of people from all over NSW and ACT.  Our Club holds monthly driver training weekends for all members, trips from one day to several weeks’ duration (such as outback trips) and a variety of social activities. Over the last few years our Club has had trips to the Victorian High Country, Corner Country, Simpson Desert, Cape York, Central QLD, Fraser Island, Outback NSW & Tasmania.

What about weekend trips and history? – Nissan Patrol Club members run regular trips within a couple of hours of Sydney that take in a range of 4WDing and often explore some of the history of our State. The trips are graded depending on the degree of difficulty, to cater for the different levels of driver and vehicle ability or of interest.

To further support our members, you can purchase quality 4WD equipment at discounted pricing through the Club Shop.   This includes all your rated recovery gear that we source and sell to ensure everyone uses safe and certified equipment.

We are strongly committed to continued and open access in our National Parks and State Forests, protecting the environment through the Tread Lightly policy of four wheel driving and helping to “Clean Up Australia” by cleaning up our bushland.

The Nissan Patrol Four Wheel Drive Club NSW and ACT Inc. supports peak motoring body’s in their goal of maintaining access for all to our National Parks and State Forests.

General Meetings

The Club holds its monthly General Meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the Veteran Car Club Hall, 134 Queens Road, Five Dock starting at 8pm. Visitors and guests are always most welcome!

You don’t need to own a Nissan Patrol or a 4WD to attend our meetings. As well as the committee reports, the meetings include discussions and information on:

  • reports from recent trips and details of upcoming trips;
  • updates on the latest news from 4WD NSW;
  • news about the latest events on the Club’s Land;
  • the opportunity to swap ideas and information on anything to do with 4WDing (and a lot that have nothing to do with 4WDing);
  • guest speakers who address the meeting to discuss products, processes and other topics of interest to the members; and
  • our membership secretary is available to take renewals, join up new members or answer any queries you might have.

Check the calendar for the location of our next General Meeting, as occasionally we organise meetings at outside locations that are of interest to our members. We invite you to contact us if you would like to know more about the club’s activities and aims.

Classic and Historic Registration in NSW is offered for member vehicles

In NSW, owners of vehicles that are 30 years or older have the opportunity to register their vehicles under the Classic or Historic Vehicle Registration Scheme run by Transport for NSW.  We are very proud to offer this to our members as we actively participant in the scheme.  If you are specifically looking for a club for the purposes of classic or historic registration, we would be pleased to assist.

Come and Join us ….

If you are looking for a club to enjoy your vehicle, use it for what it was designed for, participate in driver training and regular trips, and enjoy our club land then we are the right club for you. Please join us HERE
