Great Divide Tours 4WD Training Centre – Castle View


Vic Widman, owner of Great Divide Tours, has developed what many see as the best 4WD Training facility in Australia. This is the venue you will use to receive your 4WD training.

Located just 14 kilometres north of the Southern Highlands town of Braidwood in NSW it is the ultimate location for 4WD training. The property consists of 240 acres in a superb bushland setting. The property is used exclusively for 4WD training, corporate conferences, motor vehicle launches and team building. It is the choice of Overlander Magazine’s rigorous 4WD of the Year testing program.

There are over 12 kilometres of 4WD trails specially designed to reflect the type of off road tracks you will find in your workplace or on your holidays. The numerous obstacles have all been designed using natural resources and could not more closely resemble the real world of four wheel driving.

Obstacles such as the skid pan, bog holes, log bridges, water crossings, stepped ascents, rutted trails and rocky river beds are found scattered around the picturesque setting. You will share your true bush training experience with kangaroos, wombats and black cockatoos, whilst having all the comforts of a modern training centre close at hand.

The Training/Conference Centre was opened in 2003 and boasts a huge training room with all appropriate training aids and a huge open fire to not only keep you warm in winter but add that feeling of a cosy and friendly environment. The dining room can seat up to 40 people and it is served by a commercial kitchen where the best in meals can be provided if you desire.




Attached to the training room is the bunk room with modern large bunk beds for your comfort. Naturally the venue is served with toilets and showers.

The huge outdoor under cover training area overlooks the large dam and provides an ideal outdoor classroom.


Adjacent to the training centre is a large level, grassed camping ground served by ladies and gents toilets and showers.


The Centre does not have mobile phone service so you won’t be disturbed during your training or seminars, but it does have a landline. The Centre is on mains power, so you are assured of the silent nights that only a country retreat can bring.

Come and see why 100% of our visitors rate our 4WD Training and Conference Centre as EXCELLENT.
