YOUR4X4 is all about 'your bush', 'your outback', 'your weekend' and 'your journey'. Hence the title YOUR4X4.
Each year we produce 20 all new episodes of this stunning 4x4 show highlighting the trips, destinations and scenery that the average 4wdriver can achieve. Along the way there are plenty of tech tips and driving advice from our team of highly experienced experts and you will learn how to set up your own 4wd whether it’s for local day jaunts or extended remote touring.
We also have a diverse range of prizes and competitions each series that really get our viewers involved. At the end of the day, this is truly a 4x4 show made by real 4wdrivers to entertain, inspire and educate any 4wdriver or outdoor enthusiast. Tune in and enjoy some of the amazing places we visit each week, learn from the experts and maybe even take home one of the many weekly or series prizes.

The ARB Eldee Easter Event 2013 again expanded with new stages, new competitors and more prizes. An opportunity for 4wdrivers to experience the outback in a friendly and controlled environment the ARB Eldee Easter Event also brings a multitude of 4wd and outback education to a demanding 4x4 location. A unique experience, this event highlights just how much 4x4 fun can be packed into one weekend. Participants enjoy tackling a diversity of 4x4 terrains and the breath taking backdrop of the Mundi Mundi Plains and the Barrier ranges is a bonus.
Bass Lodge is a remarkable 3 story log cabin set deep into the forests mid way between Armidale and Kempsey. Constructed just above the Macleay River flood line, the Lodge serves as an ideal base to explore a plethora of 4wd opportunities including river crossings, rock crawling, mountain top views, forest trails and more. Bristling with wildlife, history and breath taking vistas the area is the ideal spot for relaxing, hunting, fishing and 4wdriving.
