The hallmark of the Australian 4WD Academy is training by experts with a hands-on, in depth knowledge of 4WD driving in all conditions. Our instructors all hold a Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training. The training courses cover everything from the most simple tasks right through to advanced recovery techniques.
From our base on the Cooloola Coast in Queensland we provide professional training that is nationally recognised. Our clients include National Parks and Wildlife Service, numerous mining companies, Essential Energy, Essential Water, School of the Air, various government departments and private clients. We are able to offer training in any mainland Australian state.
The Director of Training at Australian 4WD Academy is Michael McCulkin. Michael spent 20 years with NSW Police and was an instructor with the Police Driver Training School for eight years. Michael is well known as the foremost trainer in the area with extensive experience, a love of the Australian outback and the ability to convey his knowledge to others. With our background and experience much of our training has an emphasis on a safer, low risk approach to operating any vehicle, whether it be an all wheel or four wheel drive, an all terrain vehicle or a conventional car.
For 25 years we also owned and operated the multi-award winning outback tour company, Tri State Safaris, which was based in Broken Hill. Destinations such as the Kimberley, Simpson Desert, Cape York, Flinders Ranges and much of the Australian Outback were part of of backyard. If you are planning an outback adventure tour why not tap into our specialist knowledge and join us for some essential training before you set off into the vast expanse of Australia's outback.
