ABOUT:

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club is based in Victoria, Australia and was established in 1997. It has now grown to become the largest Jeep Owners Clubs in Australia.

The club is a thriving, proactive club with many enthusiastic members from all age groups and most Jeep models are represented.

New members are made very welcome and are encouraged to join in the regular club activities, trips, driver training and social events.

All Jeep models are catered for, from the earliest models to the very latest Wranglers, Cherokee and Grand Cherokees.

Regular club meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month. Although normally meeting in Brighton, due to renovations at Dendy Park Bowls Club, club meetings will now be held at Four Wheel Drive Victoria headquarters, RSL Hall, Centreway, Greythorn Shopping Centre, off Doncaster Rd in North Balwyn (Melway 46G2). Meetings commence at 7.30pm and are preceded by member socialising. Prospective members are more than welcome, however so that you are expected, please contact the Membership Officer on membership@mjoc.org.au.

In October 2004 the club successfully hosted and organised the 2004 National Jeep Jamboree in Victoria with over 270 Jeeps from across Australia attending over the four day weekend. Held in Narbethong and Marysville in the foothills of the Victorian High Country the Jamboree held a huge variety of 4WD trips and Jeeping events including a massive Jeep convoy and Show 'n' Shine massing 235 Jeeps in the one location. See the Jeep Jamboree reports and photos on the Jambo website.

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club offers organized club trips to a wide range of destinations both around Victoria and interstate. All levels of driver skill and vehicle specifications are catered for and trips are rated to suit weather and track conditions as well as driver and vehicle suitability.

The club has an extensive driver training program which is conducted at Omaru Jeep Adventure Park near Kilmore, an hour north of Melbourne. All new members must complete an induction and training program prior to attending any club trips as a driver.

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club is affiliated with 4WD Victoria (VAFWDC), and promotes responsible four wheel driving with total respect for the environment. The club is also a member of Tread Lightly Australia and strictly follows their code for responsible driving and camping.

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club is a non profit organization and supports the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Tread Lightly Australia, and Community Aid Abroad.
