Below are some of the Basics you will need when you come on one of our adventures.
You will be made aware of any extra equipment that may be required on certain trips.
Your vehicle must be Licensed, Roadworthy and recently checked & serviced before heading out on an adventure.
(This includes mechanical, auto electrical and suspension/tyres)
We have a couple of great businesses on board who can give your 4by the once over before you head out.
We have the right to refuse any vehicle we deem unfit for the adventure we are heading out on.
Good tyres and spares are a must. If you can carry 2 spare tyres do it. (This goes for trailer tyres also)
Clearance under vehicle is a bonus on most of our trips.
A 5Watt UHF radio preferably built-in with continuous power supply.
(A 5Watt hand held is okay but please advise us if this is the case so we can position you in convoy appropriately)
Tyre Deflater of your choice and Air Compressor to re inflate tyres.
Reliable tyre gauge and puncture repair kit.
Front & Rear recovery points. Please note the cars tie down points are not rated recovery points.
(If you are unsure of what rated recovery points are please ask)
1 or 2 Bottle jacks, jacking plate, wheel chocks, wheel brace & lock nut for your studs if you have one.
A decent long handled shovel (not folding type)
Sand flag for sand driving.
First Aid Kit
Spares for your vehicle (Belts, Hoses, Oils & Fluids)
Everything else you need for the trip i.e.. Food, Water, Chairs, Tables, Cooking gear etc
We carry most necessary recovery equipment but always a good idea to provide your own as well.
We will have a phone, EPIRB & first aid kit on all trips.
We will have a sat phone when we go to more remote areas.
All adventurers must fill in an emergency form before heading off on a trip.
This is kept in your vehicle in the glove box for reference if something should happen to you.
All allergies and ailments should be listed.
TOILETS & SHOWERS
Some of our adventures we find great campsites with drop loos, but most of the time its you and mother nature.
So you will either need to bring your port-a-loo, or grab your shovel and find a secluded spot away from camp to wander off to spend a penny. Toilet paper MUST be disposed of in an appropriate manner.
(This can be explained to you if you are unsure of what options there are)
Showers are generally BYO. We will have a hot water shower & pop tent you can use, but you must provide the water.
BYO soap and toiletries.
Our trips generally cater for roof top tents, tents or swags.
There are a few adventures where Off Road Camper trailers, Small Off Road caravans & small boats will be ok.
We will make mention of what camping gear is suited for each adventure on the Listing page on adventures page.
If you are unsure of what you can or can't bring on any of our trips just give us a call.
DOGS & PETS
Generally it is a big NO. We love our pets but it is not advisable on most of our trips.
Mostly because we are in areas of widespread baiting (1080 & Strychnine) so it is not recommended that Dogs or pets be brought along on trips for their own safety. Plus they are not allowed in National Parks which we travel through quite often.
We will make note of any Dog/pet Friendly trips.
