Fun Fraser Island 4WD adventure

fraser island 4wd

Something that stood out for us during the trip was the koala ferns. We had never seen such amusing ferns. This beautiful species of flora is native to Australia and definitely the softest plant I have ever touched. All we wanted to do was reach out and pat them as we drove past. With such mixed reviews regarding travel times …

Epic weekend at The Springs 4×4 Park

The springs 4x4 park

With dust, soot and tyre smoke bellowing out from under his 60 Series, Shane finally accepted his fate and reversed back down for me to give it a crack. Now let’s just say I was quietly confident going into this track knowing the Milk Carton’s capabilities. As expected, the Milk Carton crawled up through the shale and onto the boulders, …

Loving Levuka 4×4 Park

levuka 4x4 park

This climb, even in drought conditions, remains as slimy as your dodgy ex-boss, and each time we have conquered this track it has been at full noise in third low, so please make sure if you attempt this track you have sufficient recovery gear and a second car at a minimum. Following the track down through the next gully, you …

We especially loved this track in the late afternoon for chilled-out driving to experience the serenity and of course the wildlife. Unfortunately, a number of tracks on Straddie have been closed of late, however the spectacular North Stradbroke Inland Track, which connects East Coast Rd with Alfred Martin Way, is still open for business.

As we looked into buying our new car, we made the bold decision to make it a memorable experience, and what better way to do so than to turn a purchase into an adventure! So we expanded our search south to Melbourne and soon enough found the perfect canvas. It was a tidy ZD30 CRD Patrol with low kilometres and …

Charity 4WD event at Yalwal

Let’s just say that Monster ate the track for breakfast while my stockpile of spares began to diminish. One broken drag link and idler arm later, I called my mate and ordered another five drag links to ensure I survived the trip. I’ll admit, at this stage I had all the gear but limited experience driving challenging tracks. With some …
