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.
