Welcome to 4WDing Australia!
This blog is run by Aaron and Sarah Schubert. Aaron does the writing and most of the photography (but Sarah’s pretty good at getting shots too!). We’ve been avid 4WD owners and campers for more than 12 years now, and love nothing more than heading away to explore this amazing country.
We’ve explored hundreds of amazing 4WD tracks and camp sites in Australia, and continue to look for the best of the best in this great country. In the past we owned a Toyota Hilux, then an 80 Series Land Cruiser and towed a Soft Floor Camper Trailer.
We live in Perth and have travelled a fair chunk of Western Australia and the Northern Territory by 4WD. The big lap of Australia is on the agenda soon!
This website was created to share our experiences and help, inspire and guide others to get out and to travel Australia by 4WD. We are constantly learning, and love nothing more than passing on genuine, high quality and relevant information to our audience. You’ll find trip reports, destination reviews, 4WD tips and technical information, product reviews, information on camping and a whole lot more.
You’ll also find honest information. There’s a new breed of travellers who provide a cash for comment service. That’s not us. Almost all of our gear is paid for from our own, hard earned cash. If the gear is rubbish, that is made clear. There’s a lot of dodgy marketing, unethical practices and just rubbish quality gear on the market and we like to sort out the chaff from the wheat.
Please note what is on this website is our own honest opinions, and you would do well to do your own research!
About the site
We receive around 70,000 visits a month from people all over Australia. After 10 years of running the blog, we are finally starting to make a reasonable chunk of money sharing what we love. It’s not enough to do full time just yet, but it’s a labour of love and if it was done purely for the money it would have been scrapped a long time ago.
We spend a significant amount of time and effort running the blog, and would love it if you could support us by sharing articles, leaving a comment or telling your mates about it.
We also work with a variety of quality companies. If you want to work with us, we offer a range of services from content creation and photography through to product reviews and destination promotions.

I’m a Maintenance Planner/Mechanical fitter and have studied Maintenance Engineering along with a range of other courses and tickets. I spend my days maintaining fixed plant equipment, and then get home to my two little boys and wife, Sarah.
I’m an avid photographer, writer and enjoy the technical side of blogging too, all of which go hand in hand with great 4WD tracks, amazing camping and incredible trips around Australia
Sarah’s a very, very busy mum of two boys. Having spent nearly a decade in child care, she now stays at home and looks after our young kids.
She loves photography, scrap booking, cooking (only the fun things!), gardening and is constantly asking when we can go camping next!
We travel regularly on weekends, burn most of our annual leave on camping trips and every now and again go on bigger trips, like our 3 months up north with a camper trailer.
If you see us out and about, come and say G’day! We’d love to have a chat.
See you out there!
