Jeep Jamboree in Queensland


Jeep Jamboree in Queensland

3rd August, 2006

With Queensland announced as the host state for the 2006 Jeep Jamboree, hundreds of Jeep owners and their families around Australia are gearing up for the National event involving four days of four-wheel drive adventure.

Black Duck Valley four-wheel drive park, 90 minutes west of Brisbane, will be the venue for the gathering. This event continues the worldwide tradition which began over 50 years ago of Jeep aficionados’ testing the ‘go-anywhere, do-anything’ capabilities of their vehicles in a unique and unforgettable Jamboree atmosphere.

From Thursday 28th September to Sunday 1st October Jeep owners will trek down bush trails, conquer rugged terrain, test their skill in the Hammond 4WD Centre Gymkhana, or if that’s all too hard, catch up on some local history and keep their Jeep clean for the Suburban 4WD Show and Shine.

“The National Jeep Jamboree is growing into a ‘must-do’ event for our owners and enthusiasts in Australia,” said Gerry Jenkins, managing director Chrysler Jeep Australia.

“The Jeep Jamboree brings many customers together, from all over Australia as well as overseas, for one special weekend ever two years.

“The fact that customers budget their time and money to attend the Jamboree is testimony to their passion for the Jeep brand and what it represents,” he said.

This year’s event, hosted by the Queensland Jeepers Club Inc, with Jeep as the key partner, provides owners with a unique opportunity to discover some of Australia's natural beauty and test their vehicles in a private four-wheel-drive park and on local properties covering over 800 acres of off-road tracks.

Participating vehicles range from the early World War II MB Jeeps right up to current Jeep Wranglers, Cherokees, Grand Cherokees and the most recent addition, the seven-seat Commanders. All ranging from standard to highly modified vehicles.

The Jamboree caters for owners with all ranges of four-wheel-driving experience with trips rated from easy to extreme. Those who have never been off-road can learn the craft at the JEEP 101 course in basic four-wheel driving on the Jeep 101 test track.

The Queensland Jeepers Club Inc, the largest Jeep four-wheel drive club in Queensland, was formed in 1981 and operates within the Four-Wheel Driver’s Code of Ethics promoting responsible care for the environment.
