4 x 4 Australia

30 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 1992

-

THE big news in the September issue was that a new Troopy was due to arrive in Australia, powered by the 4.5 petrol engine. Back then it was even noticed that the Usa-sourced Isuzu Trooper had ABS brakes, something the Australian Jackaroo didn’t have. How times have changed, when every vehicle on the market except for a horse and cart have ABS these days!

Moonie was out wandering with a yarn on the west coast of South Australia, one of his favourite haunts that he has been going to for the last 50 years!

In other destinatio­n yarns, David Corke went looking for the grave of Charlie Gray, one of the doomed Burke & Wills members and a story that still resonates among modern-day explorers. We also explored around Mount Stirling in the Victorian High Country; and across the border in NSW, Vic Widman took us around Yalwal.
