Australian Jeep Jamboree set for Fall 2010

by Bill Cawthon on

The Melbourne Jeep Owners Club (MJOC) will be hosting the National Jeep Jamboree Victoria 2010 from September 30 to October 3 at Lardner Park in Warragul, Victoria.

At the National Jeep Jamboree Victoria 2004, MJOC welcomed 600 visitors and nearly 300 Jeep vehicles set the bar for Jeep events in Australia, with over 600 people and nearly 300 Jeep vehicles attending over the four-day period, setting the bar for Jeep events in Australia. MJOC’s goal for this year is to bring in more than 1,000 people, making it the largest Australian Jeep owner’s event ever.

Lardner Park was home to the 1994 Jeep Jamboree but MJOC says things have changed a little since then. It is located about 10 minutes from the towns of Drouin and Warragul and about 103 kilometers (roughly 64 miles) east of Melbourne, the capital city of Australia’s southernmost state. Lardner Park includes some of Victoria’s great tracks and there will also be trips to the surrounding areas including Neerim, Nilma, Noojee, and Bunyip, as well as areas a bit further away such as Baw Baw and Walhalla. Jeep is the key partner for the event and is very excited about the Jamboree being held at such a fantastic venue.

For more information, visit the Melbourne Jeep Owners Club website or the National Jeep Jamboree website.
