    The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club (MJOC) is proud to host the National Jeep Jamboree Victoria 2010. When MJOC ran the National Jeep Jamboree Victoria 2004, we set the bar for Jeep events in Australia, with over 300 Jeep vehicles and nearly 700 people in attendance across the four days. In 2010, we hope to create an event that will exceed our efforts and attract over 1000 visitors.


    Lardner Park is the base venue for what is expected to be the largest Jeep owner’s event ever held in Australia. Lardner Park was home to the 1994 Jeep Jamboree (but things have changed a little since then) and is located about 10 minutes from the towns of Drouin and Warragul. Jeep are the Key Partner for the event and are very excited about the Jambo being held at such a fantastic venue and in an area so close to Melbourne. This not only opens up some of Victoria’s great tracks to those from around the country, but also to Victorians too.

    Trips will be held in the surrounding areas including Neerim, Nilma, Noojee, and Labertouche, as well as areas a bit further away such as Baw Baw and Walhalla. Find out more about the area on our Location or Jambo Country pages. A great way to GET 'EM DIRTY!


    What is A Jeep Jamboree?

    A Jeep Jamboree is a family-oriented four-wheel-drive event that's probably unlike anything you've ever experienced. Jeep Jamborees are designed for all levels of expertise - from raw beginners to seasoned veterans - so they’re fun for everyone. Jeep Jamborees are designed for all Jeeps from the stock vehicle just driven off the show room floor, to the modified tourers, the hard core machines, and everything in between.

    Jeep Jamboree activities can include various Jeep trips into nearby four wheel drive trails, Jeep trials, suspension articulation ramp competition, Jeep show 'n' shine, vehicle displays, sponsor displays, and many social activities. It's all about the Jeep Lifestyle.

    Jeep Jamboree four wheel drive and tourist trips

    For four full days, you and your family can venture onto specially planned Jamboree trails that will take you along scenic mountain trails, scramble over rocky peaks and slip 'n' slide through muddy gullies - whatever takes your fancy. Trips are designed to suit all vehicle and driver capabilities so there will be one (or some) just right for you.

    Jeep Jamboree History

    The history of the Jeep® Jamboree goes back more than 57 years, when a group of enthusiastic owners of ex-World War II military Jeep® vehicles decided to drive an old Indian track across the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. That track was the Rubicon Trail, one of the toughest 4WD routes anywhere in the world. The famous Rubicon Jeep® Jamboree has been held every year since and has spawned a number of other similar Jeep Jamboree events across America and around the world.

    In 1953 Mark A. Smith and a small group of Rotarians and friends figured out a way to boost the economy of Georgetown, California: stage an annual Jeep® vehicle trek across the Sierra Nevada Mountains by way of the old Rubicon Trail. The first Jeep Jamboree saw 155 people take on the Rubicon Trail. And in 1954, Willys Motors - then manufacturer of Jeep vehicles - became involved with the adventure.

    There are over 30 Jeep Jamborees each year in the USA (www.jeepjamboreeusa.com) and they are also held in other countries all over the world. Jeep Jamborees are held every 2 years in Australia and this is the second time that the Melbourne Jeep Owners Club have run one in Victoria, the first being in the Narbethong and Marysville area in 2004.
