Drive for Life

A great day out driving on some of the best driver’s roads in Australia. We believe in “Fun Raising” while you’re fundraising!

Whether you are a motoring enthusiast or just looking for something the family can do together – we’ll give you a day out to be remembered for years to come. Take the opportunity to make a difference through participation in our entertaining event.

Over $55,000 has been raised since our first event in 2012. All profits from Drive For Life fund suicide prevention education

Drive for Life is suspended for 2020 due to COVID-19

Social Drive

Drive for Life is run on public roads around the Yarra Ranges and Valley.

This division is operated like a motorised ‘treasure hunt’ – excellent fun for the whole family.

Route instructions are provided at the start which contain clues and questions to solve in order to successfully arrive at the final destination where we enjoy lunch together. 


Club Challenge

 This course is more challenging and requires following route charts and map navigation to to the final destination.

Car clubs can claim points from this event toward their championship tally by prior arrangement.

You don’t need to be a club member to choose this division if you prefer a greater challenge than the social drive.
