Girls Behind the Wheel – 4WD Course

Planned for the 8th of May 2021, the Eureka Girl’s behind the wheel 4WD course will be an exciting day of 4WDing split into 2 parts. The day will begin with the sand part of the course held in Gnangara, till mid-day.

We will then make our way to Eureka’s main office in Midvale for a lunch break (tea and coffee provided by Eureka).

We will finish the day by completing the Bush terrain part of the course in an area called Ngangagurin, 30 minutes east of Midland.

That is up to you. As this is a girls 4WD Course, we are requesting the drivers are women (happy for other women passengers to take turns behind the wheel). Males are permitted to attend the course as passengers. There is no extra charge, our fees are per vehicle and passengers are free. Children are welcome, yet they do need to be kept under your supervision.

  • Your current Australian Drivers License.
  • A full tank of fuel.
  • Food and drinks as required for the day, including water.
  • Any personal medication you may need.

Eureka supplies all the normal 4WD recovery equipment needed and a full first aid kit, however if you have any 4WD recovery equipment please bring it, as it may be useful and will give us a chance to make sure it’s suitable for your vehicle.
