The Land Rover Owners Club of NSW
The Land Rover Owners Club (LROC) was formed in 1966 by a group of enthusiasts who shared an interest in four wheel driving and the great outdoors. It caters for all models from Series I right through to the current Defender, Discovery, Discovery Sport, Evoque and Range Rover.
We welcome owners of other four wheel drive vehicles in our club - in fact, we have life members who don't own Land Rovers.
Since its inception the Club has promoted responsible four wheel driving as a legitimate recreational and family activity and we adhere to a code of ethics and principles endorsed by the Australian National Four Wheel Drive Council and Four Wheel Drive Victoria.
Each month, the Club organises day, weekend and extended trips to satisfy various interests of the wide range of membership and cater for the novice through to the experienced driver.
With the growing resurgence of the Land Rover marques and the popularity of four wheel drive touring, the club is adapting to the needs of the Land Rover owner of the 21st Century.
The club is a source of valuable information through the experiences of our members, links with the 4x4 movement and vehicle and equipment suppliers.

A Serious Week at and about Paxina
When: Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th November
Over the last 15 years, there has been a gathering of Historic Land Rovers over a weekend at the property of LROCS, LROCV and LRSOC members, Patrick and Margaret near Lithgow. This year due to the 70th Anniversary celebrations at Cooma, it was postponed from its usual time of March until November and it was decided to make it a week-long event in honour of the occasion.
This will make it more worthwhile for those people who bring their vehicles long distances.
Although the primary focus will be on Series vehicles with leaf springs, other Land Rover enthusiasts are welcome.
The week will also be open to non-Club members. However, they will be required to pay $15 to cover the cost of insurance.
The property has good bush camping and is about 44 kilometres north of Lithgow in N.S.W. Two bush toilets are provided, but there are no other facilities. Access to the site is possible for camper trailers towed by a proper 4WD (i.e., with low ratio and high clearance), but NOT caravans. Wood for campfires is available.
A number of events have been planned:
In addition, there will be the Paxina Award, presented to the person/vehicle who most closely fulfils the objective of the exercise – i.e., the preservation of Series vehicles.
BOOKINGS People intending to come MUST register beforehand AND on arrival.
