ROAD TRIPFOR A REASON From the breathtaking Northern Territory to the charming Eyre Peninsula, four exceptional Australians drove the All-New Discovery throughout the heart of Australia in pursuit of their unique reasons.
SALLY FITZGIBBONS’ REASON
Finding the perfect wave takes an incredible amount of passion and a keen sense of adventure. It’s what world-renowned surfer Sally Fitzgibbons lives for, and why her road trip in the All-New Discovery took her to Comerong Island, a breeding ground for sharks but an incredible surfing destination.Sally’s journey began with a challenging drive through rocky terrain, muddy back roads and soft sand, but ended with a magical moment in the ocean. All-New Discovery’s Wi-Fi Hotspot allowed her to find the best location, where she braved the cold southern seas to pursue her passion. And by wearing the Activity Key wristband, she didn’t need to worry about anything but the surf. The All-New Discovery helped Sally to go above and beyond in pursuit of the perfect wave.
The Activity Key wristband is an optional extra that makes living life to the full even easier. Use it to lock or unlock your All-New Discovery when you have your hands full or prefer not to carry a key fob. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, enabling you to enjoy a range of activities.

JAMES VILES' REASON
James Viles' journey began in the Northern Territory, where he battled crocodile infested waters, snakes, and temperatures over 40 degrees.As a chef, he’s always searching for new produce to cook with. That’s why his journey took him up north where a whole pantry of underused ingredients exists. With the help of the All-New Discovery, James found these hidden delicacies located in the most challenging of spots. Using the wade sensor, he crossed dangerous waters to find water lilies, and penetrated dense bushland to find Pandanus nut trees filled with weaver ants.Thanks to the All-New Discovery, he was able to go above and beyond to find the best ingredients Australia had to offer.
With a class-leading wading depth of up to 900mm, the optional Wade Sensing Feature can prove invaluable.
