ABout us

As one of Queenstown’s longest running family owned and operated businesses, this local family of industry pioneers and off road champions can take you on the drive of your life.

Bringing you epic Off Road Adventures since 1990!

The beginning...

With the help of my wife Marilyn and our children Brendan, Lachie, Scott and Alanna I started this company in 1989 after two men asked me where they could hire motorcycles.

I took Hans and Ralf on a full day motorcycle adventure the very next day. That was in November 1989 – we began with two motorcycles & one race quad. In the summer of 1990 we added another two bikes and kicked off properly.

From those humble beginnings we have grown to now be the largest Off Road Tour Company in the world, with over 100 buggies, dirt, quad & road bikes, offering Motorcycle, ATV and 4WD tours with our six Toyota Landcruisers, from 1 hour to 21 days.

After 30 years of doing what we love we haven’t lost our focus as we continue to offer real adventures for off road enthusiasts of ALL abilities, from beginner to expert we will give you the ride of your life!

The early days

and today...

As a local family-owned and operated business and with years of local knowledge our Off-Road 4×4 Queenstown’s guides know how to navigate the long-forgotten adventure trails to extraordinary gold rush settlements and stunning scenery.

A wealth of facts, figures and anecdotes brings the history back to life before your eyes, telling the enthralling story of how the discovery of gold changed this region forever.

Whether you are a fan of history, geology, photography or someone wanting to take in the beauty of the local region and the fascinating stories it has to offer, Off Road 4X4 has a tour to suit you.
