Bairnsdale 4WD  Social Club was established in 1985 by a group of individuals who, sharing a common enthusiasm for four-wheel driving, formed a local club to enjoy their pursuit in a safe and socially relaxing way. There have been many memorable trips and strong friendships have been formed by being a member of the Club. The club is an active member of the tread Lightly Campaign and is affiliated with the Victorian Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs Inc. (VAFWDC).

The Bairnsdale 4WD Social Club is a family oriented Club. The Club meets on the second Thursday evening each month in Bairnsdale. Each month, a club newsletter that includes correspondence, interesting information, trip reports and a diary of upcoming trips and events is circulated to all members.
