Get ready for an exciting four-wheel drive adventure with Mountain-Top Experience!

Experience a fully equipped Land Rover Defender four-wheel drive expedition vehicle. With up to five people on-board, hear the turbo-diesel humming, as you wind up into the spectacular Victorian Alps.

The tough four-wheel driving trails are handled capably thanks to big mud terrain tyres, supple suspension and your prior driver training with the Mountain-Top Experience team. Cresting a ridge brings awesome views of endless ranges of mountain wilderness. Later, at your first river crossing you stop for lunch and cool off in the crystal-clear water. Your route then takes you through the site of an old gold-mining town where you take time out to explore.

Finding a grassy clearing for the night, the camping gear is set up quickly. The evening meal is now sizzling over an open campfire as you relax with a coffee in hand.

Your adventure of a lifetime with Mountain-Top Experience has begun. Hire a fully equipped self-drive vehicle, join a scheduled trip as a passenger or bring your own 4WD as a tag-along.

Advanced 4WD driver training courses are conducted from our motel at Mountain Rivers Tourist Park at Rawson. We also run 4WD tours around Walhalla and Licola for large groups, Mt Baw Baw snow transport in winter, and Latrobe Valley Power Industry Tours.
