25 Years of Jeeping


The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club (MJOC) was first established in 1997 and in 2022, we are 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.

12 Hot Tips For Driving In 4WD Terrain

  • Check out your Manufacturers Owners Handbook for correct operation of your vehicle’s technology.
  • Check the weather before you go. Are the tracks going to be dry or muddy?
  • Don't go on your own. You will need another vehicle to help if you get stuck.
  • Lower your tyre pressures when in 4WD terrain. This gives better traction and softer ride.
  • Use low range 4WD in steep terrain and use 1st gear for going down hills & 2nd or 3rd going up.
  • Learn safe recovery methods for winching or recovery strap use. 
  • Never use a Tow Ball for Recovery.
  • Do a 4WD training course and learn how to best use your vehicle safely
  • Join a 4WD club that is covered by Public Liability and Personal Injury Insurance like MJOC
  • Leave no trace of your visit to the bush - Take out what you take in
