Those participating in our 4wd driver training courses range from complete novices with absolutely no experience, and probably very nervous to start with, through to the very experienced who are looking for more advanced 4wd training.

Your vehicle does not need any expensive extras and accessories in order to do our courses, in fact absolutely factory standard is quite OK in most cases.

In fact we encourage you not to go out and spend big before the course as you will have a much better idea as to what you need once you have been along to one of our 4wd training days.

They all leave our courses with a smile from ear to ear for many reasons but mainly -

Australian 4x4 Driver Training teaches you how to safely tackle terrain that you would never previously have thought possible to the stage where you are driving it with absolute confidence and without a second thought.

Yes we will probably take you out of your comfort zone along the way, we wouldn't be doing our job properley if we didn't

4wd driver training courses are not all the same. Australian 4x4 Driver Training uses real bush tracks with real and sometimes rough sections. If you want to learn how to drive your 4wd properley you must experience these conditions.

Our 4wd training courses are not run on man made training courses because these courses don't teach you the real thing, they don't even look close to the real thing - that is because they are not the same thing.

Don't let anybody try and convince you that learning to drive a 4wd on a man made training track will give you the same experience as learning to drive your 4wd in the bush - it can't and never will

We don't sit in a classroom for hours just talking 4wd driving, we get out there, into the bush, and we get on with driving our 4wd's and learning about the real 4x4 world

Your 4wd training course will be run by the owner of this business who will ensure that you get the absolute best value and the absolute best training available, he also has over 40 years of 4wd driving experience both in Australia and extensively overseas and 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, water and much more

You will learn how to use recovery equipment and how to recover your vehicle safely

Once you have completed your 4wd driving course you may consider one of the Australian 4x4 Driver Training's advanced 4wd 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

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 Along is either a four or six day trip during which time we will 4wd tag along to several of the High Countries most special places and some of the Victorian High Countries most spectacular scenery

The view from the Pinnacles on a 4wd tag along tour is breathtaking

 We camp at the same beautiful spot next to a pristine river for the full length of the four day trip and only move once in the six day trip. This allows us to spend more time for sight seeing and relaxing rather than setting up camp all the time

The Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours Outback and Deserts trip is one matched nowhere else in tag along touring in this area for value and destinations.

Apart from travelling 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 as we travel down the North Simpson.  We will also travel the most popular stretch of the normal Simpson Desert crossing from Poeppel Corner to Birdsville via Eyre Creek and Big Red

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

In September 2015 we are running a similar trip to the one we did in July 2014 that took us into one of the most remote regions of Australia.

Our route took us where no vehicle had ever been before, this is a totally unique experience that only a very few will ever get the chance of having.

This 4wd tag along tour opportunity through the North Simpson desert is so rare these days that you are unlikely to meet anyone else, ever, who has ever experienced anything remotely close to this one.

The trip will include visiting many iconic Outback destinations along the way and will be a 14 day holiday that you remember and talk about for years to come.

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

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

Modern advances in vehicle design and technology mean that more people now have the vehicles available to them to see these out of the way places but relatively very few actually get to do it.

If you have had little or no experience of driving a 4wd vehicle, or have been doing it for a while and simply want to improve your skills, then John cantrell, Australian 4x4 Driver Training and Australian 4x4 tag Along Tours offers you the opportunity to learn how to drive your 4wd in a real 4wd bush environment on realistic, and at times rough, bush tracks as well as the chance to visit some seriously good, often iconic and sometimes seriously remote, out of the way, places in the company of other, like minded, people.

Take advantage of John Cantrell's decades of 4wd experience, his proven track record as one of New South Wales leading 4wd driving instructors and his passion for showing people some of Australia's most remote places.

In July 2014 Australian 4x4 Travel and Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours took a 4wd tag along tour group into one of Australia's most remote desert regions, east west across the North Simpson Desert,  including three days of cross country without any visible tracks, almost certainly the first vehicles, and possibly the first people ever through much of it.

We supply a support vehicle on all 4wd tag along tours that is fully equipped to deal with emergency and breakdown situations in the unlikely event that they occur, we will give advice on fuel, food and water requirements and Australian 4x4 Travel and Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours will take care of all appropriate camp site bookings, permit requirements and more, in fact the cost of all of the Australian 4x4 4wd tag along tours includes the cost of permits where necessary and all camp site fees.

Australian 4x4 Travel and Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours run 4wd tag along tours to The Victorian High Country as well as the Outback, Simpson Desert, North Simpson Desert and Hay River. For more details follow this link Australian 4x4 Travel Tag Along Tours

A high percentage of 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.
