the magnificent south west

Who doesn’t like a huge road trip to a place you know, deep down in your bones, will be the site of an immensely rewarding and unforgettable experience? As maps and plans are poured-over and discussed, the energy that builds inside the tight constraints of a vehicle’s cabin can easily become palpable as goals and ambitions about bucolic, long planned-for adventures are finally released from imagination and set free to fly. Camaraderie settles easily in such circumstances, foretelling with almost sentient awareness, great happiness to come. The south-west of Australia is such a place, although there’s no avoiding its distance and isolation from most of Australia. Even from Perth, Busselton is close to a three hour drive, and from Busselton, once you round the long gently curving bottom of south west Australia,…

keeping a cool head

Can you name all the fluids in a 4WD? A typical modern 4WD can have up to nine or even 11 different fluids running through its body, driveline and engine. Not to mention the Coca-Colas in the drink holders. When I give it some thought, I am amazed by how much the average 4WD relies on fluids. Of course, each fluid has its place. Fluids are used for several purposes and functions, including lubrication, hydraulic applications, fuel, cleaning, and cooling. Some fluids even have a dual purpose where they act both for cooling and lubrication cohesively. However, there is one fluid that is used strictly for cooling, and that is coolant. In this article I’ll explain how to keep your engine’s cooling system running as it should be and why this is…

from the beach to the bush

Part of Australia that is often overlooked or missed completely is the south-west of our largest state, Western Australia. Having explored the Nullarbor on our latest adventure, this undersung destination was the next on my family’s travel list, and for good reason. Stunning white beaches west of Esperance, lush bushlands, and thriving forests – how could you skip this? ESPERANCE After we wrapped up our last journey at Israelite Bay, we continued to follow the coastline around and really take in this sensational part of the country. First on our list was the last stretch of Cape Arid National Park. Here, we set up the camper at a spot called Thomas River, which is hidden away and has everything you could think of: barbecues, toilets, a fantastic beach complete with bushwalks and…

punching above its weight

On arrival at Patriot’s Molendinar HQ on the Gold Coast, we are met by Justin, Sarah, Tommy and Michael. There’s a bright blue Toy Hauler, with all the bells and whistles, hitched up behind a 76 series ’Cruiser out front. The place is buzzing. The Toy Hauler is the major prize from the latest series of Patriot Games and the winner is here this very morning to pick it up. No wonder the place is buzzing. It got me more than a little excited to be hitching up the new X1 behind the ute for a weekend testing. Now, it had been some time without rain in South East Queensland, but on this particular weekend, the heavens had other ideas. We were heading for the Gold Coast Hinterland to a nice…
