Each year the Club undertakes a Long Paddock Drive that encompasses planned itineraries, pre-booked negotiated discounted accommodation, events and tours.
A support team is part of the Drive to assist Roustabouts as well as manage the Drives’ administrative and operational requirements on a daily basis.
The Long Paddock Drive is in keeping with the outback station theme.
- In 2015 we “drove” a mob of ten caravans on a 35 day Outback Queensland trek that included the Birdsville Races and Lightning Ridge.
- In 2016, the Long Paddock Drive was a much longer 65 day trip with 21 caravans to the Flinders Ranges and Central Australia.
- In 2017 we undertook a 24 day trip to south west Queensland visiting towns as far west as Eromanga and Noccundra.
Our Long Paddock Drives are planned and organised at least three (3) years in advance and are usually limited to a maximum of 20 rigs.

Expressions of Interest / Registrations
Members thinking of attending may register an Expression of Interest up to a year prior to the Drive. Expressions of Interest are not binding, rather, they assist organisers with indicative numbers so discounts and arrangements maybe gained from organisations and accommodation businesses.
Expressions of Interest mean you are updated with information and you formally register when the first deposit is called.
Specific information, brochures, itineraries and updated information are provided on the Long Paddock drop-down tab.
Further information can be gained by contacting: Long Paddock Drive Coordinator: Email
Registration (Expressions of Interest) is available on each drop-down detailing specific Drives.
