The purpose of the Club is to unite people whose common interest is the Range Rover and Land Rover vehicles, and membership is open only to owners or principal drivers of these vehicles.
The Range Rover Club of Australia (NSW) Ltd was formed in April 1978 and has since grown rapidly. It is now incorporated as a company limited by guarantee.
The club was formed to bring Range Rover owners together, not only because the founders enjoyed recreational 4WD in the Australian bush, but they also saw the Range Rover as a very special and unique ‘marque’ in the world of motor vehicles. In 1991 membership was opened to the Land Rover Discovery. In 2012 the membership was expanded to include all Land Rover vehicles
The Range Rover Club is basically a ‘one make’ Club as this facilitates more predictable and safer touring. Anyone who is the owner or principal driver of a Land Rover or Range Rover vehicle can join the Club. Our Club members live all over Australia and cover all age groups.
The Range Rover Club of Australia (NSW) is managed by a Committee consisting of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Editor and Public Relations and Environment Officer. There are additional sub-committee members organising driver training and education, arranging Club merchandising, looking after advertising for the Club magazine, co-ordinating suppers and managing the Club library. Election of Office Bearers is carried out at the Annual General Meeting held in October each year. All Club members may nominate for committee positions.
Club members arrange lots of trips for their fellow members. Club trips are orientated toward family involvement. In a typical year the Club may offer as many as 30 or more activities to members varying from day trips, weekend and longer expedition-style trip, to dinners and social activities. All club trips are on existing tracks, never ‘off-road’, and often end up in National Parks and State Forests.
Our Club welcomes the opportunity to get involved with the wider community on specific projects. Some of our community activities include:
· Participation in ‘Clean Up Australia Day’, assisting with the retrieval of old car bodies, tyres etc., dumped in terrain difficult to access by conventional vehicles.
· Support to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. The RFDS is a lifeline for outback residents and travellers.
· Support to Care Flight based at Westmead Children’s Hospital
· Restoration work on tracks in National Parks.
· Stockton Beach Clean Up program
· Assisting with the restoration of the Snowy Mountains Huts
· Restoring Bowmans Cottage for NSW National Parks
The Club Driver Training Programme is a cornerstone of the member benefits provided by the Club. Currently five courses are offered ranging from novice to experienced operator standards. All our Driver Trainers are highly experienced four wheel drivers. Our courses are specifically tailored to Range Rover and Land Rover vehicles. Our Training Programme will allow drivers to become aware of their vehicle’s capabilities, as well as their own in a safety focused environment. Then it is up to you to experience the lifestyle benefits of owning and driving a capable four wheel drive vehicle.
A quality monthly magazine, ‘Marque’, featuring news of past and future trips and other items of general interest, is mailed to all members. Members are welcome to contribute stories.
The Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month at various venues around Sydney. Please see our Club Calendar for meeting details.
