Many four-wheel drive tracks are seasonally closed from 1 June to 1 November each year to protect water quality and prevent damage to the tracks over winter. Information on which tracks may be closed can be viewed on our interactive Public Access Map.

The best way to enjoy four-wheel driving is by joining one of the many four-wheel driving clubs in Victoria. The local knowledge and experience of the club environment enables those with less experience to explore new areas safely. Contact the Victorian Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs for more information.


We have designed  a number of 4WD tours for you which link to some popular visitor attractions. Some of these touring routes and other useful four-wheel driving information are detailed below.
