The Australian Outback 4x4 Extreme is run by two local well known charities working together, Legacy and Rotary. Both charities are well known and very highly respected nationally. All money that is raised by these organizations is put back into the community through different projects.
The event committee includes a large cross section of professional and experienced people to ensure that this event is run to the highest standard possible with a large group of volunteers to assist. The event has secured the full backing of the local council, local tourist association, property owners, local 4x4 enthusiasts and local and interstate businesses. Our aim is for the Australian Outback 4x4 Extreme to be Australia’s best 4X4 event and attract the best local and international competitors.
