which has the very best terrain for you to learn on with a trainer who
has decades of 4wd and training experience.

complete novices with absolutely no experience, and probably nervous to
start with, to those with experience and looking to increase their

4wd driver traing courses are not all the same. Australian 4x4 Driver
Training courses are not run on man made training courses because these
courses don't teach you the real thing, they often don't even look like
the real thing - that is because they are not the same thing. We don't
use graded forest trails and tracks either for the same reason.
Don't let anyone try and convince you that learning to drive a 4wd on a
man made track or graded forest trail will give you the same experience
as learning to drive your 4wd in the bush on real tracks - it can't and
it never will.
We don't sit in a classroom for hours just talking about 4wd driving,
we get out there, into the bush, and we get on with driving our 4wd's
and learning about the real 4wd world.
Your training course will be run by the owner of this business who will

both in Australia and extensively overseas and, often, in some
seriously remote places.
Australian 4x4 Driver Training Courses teach you how to drive over a
variety of different track and terrain types, some rough, some rocky,
some steep, some rutted, sand, rivers and river crossings and much more.
You will learn how to use recovery equipment and how to recover your
Once you have completed your 4wd training course you may consider one
of the Australian 4x4 Driver Training's advanced 4x4 driver training
courses that will take you to a level of expertise, knowledge and
ability above that of most.
Your health and safety, and those of your passengers, is of utmost
importance to us and the routes taken during our 4wd training courses
may need to be altered subject to weather conditions.
4wd tag along tours to the Victorian
High Country and The Outback, Simpson Desert & Hay River
as well as from the centre towards Western Australia through remote
country. All our trips are low key without a whole lot of rules and
regulations, are run by the owner of the business and never run by
sub-contractors and represent excellent value for money.
Why should you come on a 4wd tag along tour with us?
- Quite simple, we know the areas well, we know what the best
places to visit are and the best routes to take and you will have a lot
of fun along the way.
Let us do the organising for you so that you can see the best
places and have the very best holiday.
The High Country 4wd Tag
is a five day trip, during which time we will visit to
several of the High Countries most special places and some of the
Victorian High Countries most spectacular scenery.
We camp at the same beautiful spot next to a pristine river
for the full length of the trip, so no packing up camp each day and the
setting up again later in the day as is so common on many Victorian
High Country 4x4 tag Along Tours. This allows us to spend more time
sight seeing, and there is plenty to see within reach of our camp site,

nowhere else in tag along touring in this area for value and
Apart from traveling through four states, seeing many historic and
iconic "have to see" towns and places along the way where we experience
the unique outback hospitality of several of our Outback publican
friends, you will also travel the remote Hay River Track as we travel
through the North Simpson.
We will also travel the most popular stretch of the normal west, east
Simpson Desert crossing from Poeppel Corner to Birdsville via the Eyre
Creek and Big Red sand dune.
Be different, why do the same old, same old that everyone has
been doing for years, move outside the square and experience what most
will never see
We run a few variations to this trip, one being a crossing
of the Simpson via the very remote Madigan Line on our Australian 4x4
Tag Along Tours Madigan Line tag along.
Once a year we also run a trip similar to the one that travels
down the Hay River Track but we take a couple of extra days a deviate
off the track in uncharted country where we are unlikely to find any
tracks at all and certainly wont see any other people for a few days.
This trip is the Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours Never Never, Simpson
Desert 4wd Tag Along Tour.
Where else in Australia these days can you drive for several days
without seeing another vehicle or person other than those in your
group? you can't, book early as the numbers are limited and the two
trips we have run into this area so far have been booked out well ahead
of the time.

of the best places in Australia as far as scenery and natural beauty
are concerned can only be reached by 4wd and most Australians will
never have the chance of seeing them, will never even get close.

Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours offer you the opportunity to learn how
to drive your 4wd in a real bush environment on realistic, and at
times, rough, bush tracks as well as the chance to visit some seriously
good and often iconic and sometimes remote, out of the way, places in
the company of other, like minded, people.

John Cantrell's decades of 4x4 experience, his proven track record as

and every 4wd tag along tour, we also give advice on what to take
along, what to leave at home and how much fuel you are likely to need
for your 4wd trip.
the participants on our 4wd tag along tours have
been with us before and quite a few have been with us on many trips.
The reason? mainly because our tag alongs are fun and un-regimented, we
don't have a heap of rules and regulations, we are on holiday, we are
relaxed, we enjoy ourselves and we experience some of the
best that most will never see.
Join us on one of our 4wd driver training days or relaxed 4wd tag
along tours and have
some real fun, you will probably talk about it fondly for years to come.
