About the Event

The Isuzu 4x4 Club of WA Inc. will be traveling up north to the Murchison House Station during the Easter long weekend. 

This event has a limit of 10 vehicles!  refer to the below itinerary for further information! 

This trip is available for officially paid Isuzu Club Members only.

If you are not a member yet now is a great time to join so you can come along!

Please note Guests are able to attend as a temporary members -  for $60.00 per person.

Single and Family membership is $120.00 per year.

We will be bush camping at one of the Homestead Campgrounds.

Murchison House Station is located just 12 kilometers east of Kalbarri. The station sprawls a total of 350,000 acres, so there will be no shortage of things to look at. Murchison House Station is a 150-year-old + working station.

The station has over 60 km of rugged Indian Ocean shoreline and over 30 km of Murchison river flood plains. Because of the plentiful supply of water, with many permanent soaks and springs, wildlife and bird life are abundant. 

The terrain is rugged, spectacular, and varied, with land systems ranging from coastal sand plains and dunes to river gorge country featuring the stunning red Tumblagooda sandstone that is known to the area.  

Murchison House Station is where the outback meets the ocean, which makes exploring your 4WD whilst camping here an interesting and challenging prospect. The pristine wilderness of the Station, and the Murchison River is there to be appreciated and is less than one day's drive from Perth.

As we will be camping during Easter we will be planning to do an Easter Egg Hunt for kids attending this event.

Our Trip Leaders will be in touch to advise more details regarding this once RSVPS occur.

This trip is available for officially paid Isuzu Club Members only.

If you are not a member yet now is a great time to join so you can come along!
