About Us

Welcome to 4WDing Australia!

4WDing Australia

Sarah, Ollie and Aaron

This blog is run by Aaron and Sarah Schubert. Aaron does the writing and the photography is shared. We’ve been avid 4WD owners and campers for many years, and love nothing more than heading away to explore this amazing country. We currently drive an Isuzu Dmax, tow a Hybrid Camper  or 4WD boat trailer and have a 3 year old and near 1 year old boy.

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. We will be doing the lap of Australia 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.

About Aaron:

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

About Sarah:

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 kids. 

She loves photography, scrap booking, cooking (only the fun things!), gardening and getting out and about in this beautiful country. 

Out and about

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.

We run this site in our own time, and would appreciate if you could support us. The biggest help is simply sharing our posts on Facebook, Twitter, forums, email or word of mouth. We really appreciate it.

We also work with a variety of quality companies. If you want to work with us, we offer a range of services.

Feel free to contact us

See you out there!

    Hi Mike,

    I’ve just looked on the map and can’t find it. It is located only a few km’s out of the town, on one of the more major roads. I am sure the locals would direct you to it.

There will be there cars (4WDs) going up and we are all fairly amateur 4WD with only a little bit of weekend driving throught the Gnangara forrest. I will keep you informed with how we go….hopefully wont get bogged???
    Once again keep up the good work on the site it is greatly appreciated and Im sure i am speaking for all the 4WD drive enthusiasts around WA (and Australia) thank you very very very much.

    Cheers

    G’day Hamish,

    I’m glad you like the site. How did the weekend away go? The beach up there can get extremely soft, but it depends on what the weather has been doing.

    Enjoy mate

    Hi Aaron,
    I just stumbled upon this website purely by accident and I have been reading it for over an hour now!
    Awesome work and thanks for all the information.
    So now I am ducking down to the local car dealer and buying myself a 4×4 so here’s to all you guys helping me out when I get bogged.
    Thanks Aaron.

    Take it easy

    Hey Aaron,

    Is there any waterfalls/rock pools between burns beach & two rocks ?
    can camping and mx riding on the beach be a problem in some areas?

  • Aaron January 2, 2013, 5:04 PM

    G’day Shaun,

    As far as I know there are no waterfalls or rock pools in between burns beach and two rocks. I’m pretty sure that you can’t ride unlicensed bikes on the beach anywhere in between Perth and Jurien Bay. It would pay to check with the shires though. Lancelin Sand Dunes, Thomas Road offroad area and a couple of other places are the only ones near Perth that you can ride at.

    Wow, first post here in 4 years. I’m surprised as you have a great site. It’s in my favourites now. Thanks.

    Great to hear. Thanks Peter

    Brilliant website mate

  • Aaron at 4WDing Australia April 25, 2017, 8:53 PM

    Thanks mate. Much appreciated.

  • John April 13, 2018, 7:38 PM

    Great website Aaron. Just bought my first Prado, and although grew up with farms etc I’m keen to do a bit of 4wd practice before taking the family onto the sand to learn my vehicles limitations. Is there any 4wd practice areas around Perth you know of?

  • Aaron Schubert April 14, 2018, 7:40 PM

    Thanks John,

    Gnangara pines might be a good place to give it a try. Other than that, head up to Wilbinga. As long as you let your tyres down properly, you won’t have any issues, but its a good idea to start out and practice to build up some confidence!

    Have fun
    Aaron
