What we're about

OFF ROAD ADVENTURES

Off Road Camping & Outdoor adventures is a Brisbane based community family adventure group all about off road touring, finding those special places and making the most of it with a group of like-minded people. Explore, Appreciate, Relax, socialise... From sitting under a water fall in a rock pool to drinking champagne in the rainforest whatever spot we find there is something great about getting a group together and having fun exploring this great country of ours.

4wd touring is a great way to explore some fantastic areas including look outs, rainforest tracks, historical sites, fresh water lakes, creeks, water falls, beaches, caves etc etc... and many activities along the way for all the family to enjoy. Our focus on trips is to offer plenty of variety with the right balance between relaxing and exploring. We also really enjoy supporting all of the townships we pass through and building great relationships with the locals in the areas we travel, this is a big part of the 4wd touring experience.

All trips will be a 4wd tag along approach, this will also include making time to cook up some great meals and enjoy socialising around the camp fire or relax with some time to yourself. We will utilise some of the best camping and 4wding gadgets available to us today to ensure our experiences are safe, relaxing and ENJOYABLE!!!

Typical tracks and camp sites will take us through national parks from the rainforest to the beach and mountain tops to outback jump ups, a 4x4 will be required to attend these trips but please note we are not a 4wd club! We specialise in weekend escapes and day trips to make it practical for the whole family, longer trips to remote locations are also available for those keen. All levels of 4wd and camping experience is ok. Everyone is welcome with a moderate level of health and fitness required, families, singles and couples are encouraged to join with all trips catering for everyone in an informal and relaxed environment.
