Manukau Four Wheel Drive Club
Presents the
Melanoma NZ, Four Wheel Drive Orienteering Fun Day

Sunday 26th November 2017

It is great to announce that the Melanoma NZ, 4x4 Orienteering Day on Sunday 26th November at a fantastic venue in South Auckland. The event is a fund-raising event to raise funds in support of Melanoma NZ (https://www.melanoma.org.nz/)

This event is NOT A RACE, it is a 4x4 fun day, but is competitive and will test a wide range of your 4x4 skills and is suitable for all 4x4 Club type vehicles and everyone from family groups to tough trucks. The first section of the event will be on public roads and normal road rules will apply. Trailered vehicles will be permitted (but must be safe), and will have both advantages and disadvantages. They will need to be trailered for the first section then unloaded for the rest of the day. Safe parking will be provided for trailers and tow vehicles. There will be plenty to keep the tough truck guys interested and equally, less capable club type vehicles will also be fine.

It will be a great day out for suitably equipped vehicles and the start point in Papakura is only a half hour from the centre of Auckland City.
Every entrant will need to bring a camera. Phone cameras are fine.

Vehicles on road tyres or lacking low range or recovery points will not be permitted.


Entries are strictly limited to 40 vehicles. Places will be allocated firstly to members of Manukau 4x4 Club and their guests, then to Members of other NZFWDA affiliated clubs. Space permitting others may apply on a first come first served basis.

The event starts in Papakura. Each entrant will have a different start time sometime between 8.30am and 9.30am. You will be notified of your exact start time and place a few days before the event. The event will finish at around 4pm within 30Km of Papakura.


All drivers must have a valid driver’s licence and must remain within the conditions of that licence. Organisers reserve the right to check drivers licences and vehicle suitability.

Entry fee $ 40.00. Per vehicle All profits to Melanoma NZ.
