The club holds regular get-togethers and campouts at the 4WD park in Mareeba, but this will be their first official competition which will include mud holes, technical stages, winching and a night run.

“We have a few winch tracks to put on a show and we also have 10 Can-Am buggies that will be included in this event.

“We also have a huge campground with toilets and hot showers plus an all year-round swimming creek.”

Low4 Adventures is a is a Cairns and Mossman not-for-profit organisation started by a group of 4WD lovers who wanted a safe place to test out their skills.

“They wanted to have a place where people can go out and have some fun on both dry and wet muddy tracks.
