  • If You Can’t Beat Them, Hire Them – Rent a 4WD from Bear Rentals

    How’s this for an idea. Are you a wannabe 4×4 outdoor type but don’t have the bank account or the time to invest in a fully set-up vehicle? Trust me, after hosting a radio program for several years on this topic I get just how much the spend can...
  • Ford Everest Review

    The Ford Everest is a menacing beast to look at, it sits tall, has a large front grill and is loaded with a high torque diesel engine. On the inside though the Everest has the comforts of a sedan and is an easy machine to drive. We spent a week...
  • The Updated 2017 Nissan X-Trail

    Apollo Bay in Southwestern Victoria along the Great Ocean Road is a one of the country’s great locations. Combined with the Otway National Park mountains as a backdrop then you really do have one of those must visit locations on hand. Chris Bowen recently found himself piloting the not...
  • Toyota Landcruiser 200 GXL Review: the most capable off-road vehicle for Australian conditions

    The Toyota Landcruiser has long been the go to vehicle for those looking to tow, go off-road or simply have a chunk of metal bigger than anyone else in the burbs. Its latest update brings a new, almost American front end, but in general more of the same. Chris...
  • The Forgotten Benefit of the 4WD

    The popularity of the SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) has grown dramatically over recent years. Now an SUV comes in a range of sizes from “jacked up hatchback” to “portable house”. An SUV has many benefits for families with a ride height for simple loading of small children, prams and...
  • The Nissan Patrol Y61 Legend Edition Review – is it legendary?

    To be honest it’s getting harder to really unload on any vehicle these days. Most new cars offer increasingly impressive levels of technology, some offer wildly futuristic designs, others amazing performance and fuel economy from small engines that in the past would be laughed at. As far as interior...
  • Seven-seat off-road wagon: Toyota Fortuner GXL review

    There’s an ample amount of seven-seat off-road wagons on the market that trace their ancestry back to ute-style workhorse vehicles. The Ford Everest, Mitsubishi Sport Pajero and Holden Trailblazer come to mind. But how does replacing the rear tray with a roof and seats work out for Toyota? The...
  • You Took the Weight Right off My Back: Osprey Aether AG & Ariel AG backpacks

    The biggest problem when it comes to an extended hike to some far flung corner is lugging all your stuff. In Trevor Long’s case that would mean, drones, smart devices, laptops and previously unheard of tech that he simply can’t exist without. Thankfully I have fond memories of the sheer...

    Designed for the hikers, trekkers and backpackers as well as those who love a camping trip and generally the great outdoors, this is a drink bottle that means you don’t have to worry about where you find your next water source. The BeFree from Katadyn is a soft water...
  • EFTM Quick Fix: Toyota Hilux SR5

    It was the best-selling model in 2016 and for years has helped Toyota stay at the top of the charts. But when compared to the current crop of today’s fashionable, flashy alternatives it doesn’t rate a mention, at least in the critic’s eyes. Chris Bowen spent a week in...
  • Commodore Tourer announced: The AWD Adventra is back!

    The more I see of the Opel Insignia derived all-new Holden Commodore the more I start to wonder if I’ll miss the big Aussie beast, and today Holden have released details of an all-wheel-drive Commodore Wagon they call the Tourer – I’m calling it Adventra 2.0. Holden has had...
  • Toyota Introduces the Tonka HiLux: Unbreakable concept

    As hinted by Toyota recently their Tonka Truck concept vehicle has now been revealed to the public and oh boy, they’ve done a cracker job on this one. Basically a full size toy for a grown man, the idea here was to take the iconic Tonka Truck brand and...
  • EFTM Quick Fix: Toyota Landcruiser 79 Series GXL

    It’s rough as guts, as familiar as Uluru and there’s a fair chance it could probably scale the great rock in one giant leap. I’m talking about the 2017 Toyota 70 Series workhorse, while updated you’d hardly call it a makeover. That is no bad thing, ask any potential...
  • Hot Or Cold For Hours – It’s The Klean Kanteen!

    Keeping your drink of choice hot for 14 hours or cold for 40 may well sound unlikely. But after this little gem recently came across the EFTM desk the claims proved to be more than true. Essentially a high-end thermos, the Klean Kanteen Insulated Wide Bottle is pretty dam...
