Welcome to the Shotover 4WD Club

The Shotover 4WD Club is an NZ4WDA affiliated club, based in Queenstown, the home of New Zealand’s most spectacular scenery. We generally hold a couple of trips each month. Our trips can vary from easy family-friendly outings over gentle back country roads to tougher off road trips for more experienced drivers.

We have members from all over the South Island, Wanaka, Queenstown, Invercargill to name a few, so if you are new to the 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. Visitors are always welcome,  so we invite you to join us on any upcoming trip and check it out for yourself, there is a small fee ($10) for a day membership, and if you decide to join as a full time member, this is discounted off your annual membership fee!

Currently we have around 50 active members with a wide range of trucks ranging from stock standard to the more modified and competition trucks.

Our monthly meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month, at 7.30PM, alternating between Wanaka – at the Wanaka Fire Station and Queenstown – in the Holiday Inn Functions Room (was Goldridge Resort), 594 Frankton Road. Anyone can attend, we are a very friendly bunch and welcome anyone who comes to visit us.
