Defender Ambassador Sam Evans never misses an opportunity to load up his Defender and head out on a new off-road adventure. His latest expedition took him to stunning Stradbroke Island, with its natural attractions making it a great place to explore.

In the Defender, going off-road doesn’t mean roughing it. Whether Evans was four-wheel driving along the beach, navigating dirt tracks or setting up camp for the night, the Defender was fully equipped to tackle the getaway with ease.

Like Evans, you can personalise your own Defender with a range of accessories to match your lifestyle. If you share an incurable case of wanderlust, you can get inspired by some of the features he finds essential for any off-road trip.


A choice of accessory packs - including Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban - means the Defender is always ready for any environment. Choose from practical accessories to store luggage, tow trailers and carry equipment, and invest in mudflaps, cargo barriers, rubber mats and other accessories designed to protect your Defender.

With Defender 110, opt for a two-berth roof-top tent, which is designed to mount directly to the roof rails. It features a double mattress, three pillows, an LED interior light, removable rear canopy, mosquito nets and an aluminium ladder. The Autohome X Land Rover rooftop tent is distributed and sold in Australia by The Overlanders. Evans found the roof-top tent incredibly comfortable during his Stradbroke Island trip, and it was fast to set up camp after a day of off-road exploring.
