The Newcastle Land Rover Club was established in 1963, and our membership is open to any person with an interest in wholesome and responsible recreation that can be associated with a four-wheel drive vehicle, whether it be a Land Rover or any other make. The club promotes 4WD touring through organised trips, which vary in duration from a few hours to several weeks, depending on the trip's purpose and destination. The club program of events includes social outings, education and training opportunities, competitive days, and other activities that emphasise family participation. An asset the club is honoured to have is a lease on remote forest land, named The Allan Howarth Reserve in memory of a founding member. Our lease features comfortable amenities constructed by members in a wonderful bush environment. The club is a foundation member of Four Wheel Drive NSW and the Australian National 4WD Council, and it promotes sensible and responsible four-wheel driving together with an appreciation of the beauty of Nature with an emphasis on conservation.
General Meetings are held commencing 7:30pm on the fourth Tuesday monthly (except December) at Edgeworth Bowling Club (Park Street) Bistro (open 5.30pm)
