Jeeping Since 1997

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club (MJOC) was first established in 1997 and in 2022, we celebrated our 25th anniversary.

Our motto is 'we get'em dirty' which means we love to get out in the bush and enjoy the great outdoors in our Jeep. And we dont mind getting our Jeep dirty in the process.

You will often see an MJOC convoy heading out on a great adventure to one of Victorias' iconic 4WD destinations and beyond. It is great to see a convoy cruising along with headlights on, in formation, hearing the chatter on the UHF radio, heading for the hills of the high country or out into the Victorian deserts. Having fun, Jeeps getting dirty, setting up camp beside a mountain stream, sitting around a campfire with freinds and family.

Come and enhance your Jeep experience by joining the club for Jeep owners who love there Jeep and want to have fun with other Jeepers and explore this great land and all the adventures it offers.We make all Jeep 4x4 owners welcome.


MJOC caters for all ........  More 25 Years of Jeeping
