Camper Recovery

Haul a trailer far enough and chances are you may get stuck. This day we were just arriving at our isolated campsite on Dirk Hartog Island - we were tired, we were hungry and in the final hundred metres we got stuck!

ARB Awning

Flooding downpours, blazing sunshine – few things are a bigger threat to the enjoyment of an outdoor getaway. So, it’s no surprise that one of the first accessories many new four-wheel drive owners bolt on is an awning.

Timber collection restrictions, late arrivals or wet weather can all make packing some firewood a godsend. After all fire makes camp, and even the most trying days outdoors are usually turned around by the warm glow of a campfire.

DRIFTA Fire Pit

A campfire makes camp. Uncontrolled bushfires however can rapidly destroy wide expanses of our country and are a top threat to native wildlife. It's wonderful to see so many campers embracing firepits. It's a demonstration of the great care for our land that so many outback travellers share.

It can be hard to fully describe the attraction of an open canoe - paddling one evokes a feeling that’s hard to pinpoint. Perhaps a calm most akin to spending time beside a campfire.

Airing down, a chore?

Air pressures can be a hot topic and the debate over correct pressures for varied conditions will likely continue fireside for decades to come. It’s the reasons why airing down can sometimes be such a chore that we’d like to explore.

Bollinger B1

With the last Defender rolling off the Land Rover line in 2016 the Landcruiser '76 Series is one of the last remaining 4WD icons. Our friends at Bollinger show that soul can be part of the electric future. 

DRIFTA DOT 6 SOFT TOP

Since first spotting the rugged looking DOT I was impressed by what seemed to be an ‘over engineer first’ and ‘accessories second’ design philosophy. Curious to see how one would hold up to rough travel we hooked up a brand new DOT 6 and headed for Western Australia's isolated Dirk Hartog Island to find out.
