Our 4wd training courses are not run on man made training
courses because these courses don't teach you the real thing,

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
sit in a classroom for hours just talking 4wd driving, we get out
into the bush, and we get on with driving our 4wd's and
learning about the
real 4x4 world

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
several of the High Countries most special
places and some of the Victorian High Countries most spectacular scenery
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

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.

have the vehicles available to them to see these out of the way places but relatively very few actually get to do it.

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
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
where necessary and all camp site fees.
Australian 4x4 Travel and Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours run 4wd tag
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.
