Get your family out there doing the lap of Australia.
If you are like us, every time a mud-splattered 4WD rumbles past you are hit with pangs of FOMO for far-flung adventures.
Steven Landstra and his wife packed up the kids and took the plunge early this year, and right now they’re touring across the country in a Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series equipped with a set of Toyo Tires Open Country A/TII.
Their story is a start to finish how-to guide for the ultimate lap of Australia. No corners cut.
With a two-inch left, Polyair springs, a Safari snorkel, TJM bar work and a winch, the Landstra clan are towing one of the most impressive custom-trailer set-ups we have ever seen.
On the trip, the Landstras will cover some of the most iconic tracks and distant destinations this burnt brown land has to offer, including the Gibb River Road, the Canning Stock Route, Cape York and Arnhem Land.
Stay tuned for regular updates on set-up advice, preparation tips and natural beauty encountered, as a family takes on the challenges of doing a lap of some of the world’s toughest terrain.
