Introductory 4WD Day Trips are an enjoyable outing where you are introduced to four wheel driving through learning experiences. Start off being guided through the basics, and by the end of the day most people are amazed at what they and their vehicle can do!
These day trips by Mountain-Top Experience are normally held in the rugged and spectacular mountain country around the Thomson, Aberfeldy or Macalister Rivers. However just because they are called "introductory" doesn't necessarily mean that they are "easy". It just means that with guidance, even a first-time four wheel driver can complete the trip successfully.
Start from Morwell at 9:15am. Morwell has plentiful accommodation if you wish to stay overnight. Standard vehicles with standard tyres are acceptable, and you do not need any recovery equipment, although do bring whatever you may already have. Price is only $100 per vehicle (bring a picnic lunch and as many passengers as you wish). Purchasing a gift voucher is a popular choice for a friend who recently has bought a 4WD vehicle. Training notes can be purchased to cover some of the theory of what os covered on the day.
Run once a month, see website for dates.

You're behind the wheel of a fully equipped Land Rover Defender four wheel drive expedition vehicle. With five people on board, and the turbo-diesel humming, you're winding up into the spectacular Victorian Alps. All you needed to bring was a sleeping bag, food and clothes.
The tough 4WD trails are handled capably thanks to big mud terrain tyres, supple suspension and your prior driver training with the Mountain-Top Experience team. Cresting a ridge brings awesome views of endless ranges of mountain wilderness. Later, at your first river crossing you stop for lunch and a dip in the crystal-clear water. Your route then takes you through the site of an old gold-mining town where you take time out to explore.
Finding a grassy clearing for the night, you had the supplied camping gear set up quickly. The evening meal is now sizzling over an open campfire as you relax with a coffee in hand and read up about tomorrow's route in your guide book "4 Wheel Driving Gippsland".
Your adventure of a lifetime with Mountain-Top Experience has begun.
