Why We Drive

DAD drive days are always about connection and community. They hold the intention to normalise mental health problems and mental illness, promote conversations around these and offer pathways for seeking further support.

We use driving and the shared enthusiasm for cars and great roads as our way of connecting and escaping downward emotional spirals. We know that connection is vital for mental wellbeing, and DAD events deliver this in spades. 

DAD isn’t a club, it’s a community. Please don’t feel you need to have a particular model or age of car to attend – if you love it, bring it. 

Our drive days are strictly social and non-competitive. We use open roads and carefully plan our drive routes to make them as safe and logical as possible, while using engaging roads with new scenery for a great day out. 

We advocate for using DAD drive days as an inclusive environment to start your mental health conversation where you feel comfortable to do so, however DAD drive days are not a crisis service and keeping everyone safe on the road is of utmost importance. 


What’s Happening for the Queensland Winter Drive Day in June 2024? 

Winter is the perfect time for a Queensland drive. We’re thrilled to offer a unique Drive Day for our Sunshine State crew on 2nd June 2024, where our drive will conclude at the Bowden Car Collection on the Sunshine Coast – a stunning collection of rare and unique cars owned by the crew at Bowden’s Own.

With the support of Bowden’s Own, we’re cruising through the lesser-travelled roads of the Sunshine Coast to end with a charity tour of the Bowden’s private car collection. This is a spectacular opportunity that is no longer offered to the general public, so we are incredibly grateful to the team at Bowden’s Own for inviting our DAD drive participants in for a look at their private collection.

The Bowden family shares our passion for driving mental wellness – they also understand how important it is to have something to look forward to and the positive impact that has on mental health. We extend our gratitude to the Bowden’s for offering this truly memorable experience. 

> Places are fully subscribed for this event and registration is now closed.
> The participant pack will be provided to all registered participants on Friday 31st May.
