Welcome to the Shotover 4WD Club

Next Club Meeting 

Wednesday 31 January, 2018 at 7.30pm

The Leaning Rock Trip Sunday 03 December attracted 12 trucks, 8 from our club and 4 from CO4WD Club, Alexandra, with a total of 23 people including children. Each truck paid $70 to do the trip and as a result the combined Clubs were proud to make a donation of $840 to the Poolburn School located near Omakau.

The Shotover 4WD Club is based in Queenstown, the home of New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery. We generally hold a couple of runs each month.

Our monthly meetings are held in the Holiday Inn Functions Room (was Goldridge Resort), 594 Frankton Road at 7.30 pm on the last Wednesday of the month. Access is uphill onto Goldfield Heights Road, then right onto Goldridge Way. All new prospective members are welcome. We are a very friendly bunch and welcome anyone who comes to visit us.

Our trips can vary from easy family-friendly runs over gentle back country roads to tougher off road trips for more experienced drivers.

If you are new to the Queenstown region, the Shotover 4WD Club is a great way to meet new friends and explore the amazing back country in our area.

We have a variety of places to go in the wider Otago area; we even do runs in the West Coast and Southland areas.

Currently we have around 40 active members with a wide range of trucks ranging from stock standard to the more modified trucks.

Our website is updated frequently so please check in again soon.

12 trucks total, 8 from our club and 4 from CO4WD Club on the way to Thomsons Saddle.

The famous Leaning Rock on the Dunstan Range just north East of Clyde and South Clyde–whoops we mean Alexandra

Oh blast it all we wanted to pitch our tents up here–but of course blast (as in wind) was the reason the timber has been eroded away leaving the nails proud on this trig station at the highest point Mt Dunstan 1667M–so we flagged away that tenting idea.
