We all have a favourite place we visited on a special road trip. That one spot we’ve never forgotten – pinned in our memory as a souvenir.
It’s no secret Land Rover owners find themselves in some pretty spectacular places throughout Australia. These restless modern day explorers venture far and wide, discovering unique pockets of paradise.
We put out the call to our Land Rover fans to show us their Top Adventure Spots, featuring a shot of the Land Rover that got them there. Our favourite would win a weekend with the New Defender.
Let’s just say, the response was as epic as the spots that we’ve featured below.
THE TOP SPOT: LUCKY BAY
Our winning Top Spot is Lucky Bay in Cape Le Grand National Park, Western Australia. As you can see, honourary tour guide Dan introduced us to this picture-perfect location with his Land Rover Discovery parked on the sand (and a kangaroo parked in its shade).
Lucky Bay is a renowned swimming, bush walking, fishing and camping spot in WA, around 45 minutes out of Esperance. You can head skywards and rock climb or head the other way and dive in for some snorkelling.
All the while, you’ll be sharing this spot with an entire colony of friendly kangaroos, who, incidentally, don’t mind a good sunbake on the brilliant white sands.
What a Top Spot. Hopefully we’re all lucky enough to get to Lucky Bay one day.
Tour guide Peta put forward a Top Spot called Dalhousie Springs, in South Australia. Situated in the Witjira National Park, Dalhousie Springs sits on the fringe of the vast Simpson Desert. We see Peta’s Land Rover Discovery with rugged caravan in tow, having arrived at this outermost Top Spot. In fact, make the dash another 500km north and you’re in Alice Springs.
As the name suggests, there are springs - hot springs – with swimming made simple thanks to wooden access areas. The highly mineralised water temperatures range from 38 to 43 degrees Celsius, so bring your rubber duckie.
And when not floating around, there are plenty of tracks to walk around and places to camp.
Thanks, Peta for your Top Spot tip.
DOUBLE ISLAND POINT
We are treated to a magical sunset at Double Island Point by Top Spot tour guide, Peter and his Land Rover Defender. Double Island Point is a headland that’s part of the Cooloola Recreation Area in Great Sandy National Park in Queensland. The best way to get there? By Land Rover, naturally – along the beach drive near Noosa. This spot has it all: camping nearby, scenic walks, canoeing, swimming, surfing, and by the looks of Peter’s Land Rover, it’s a golden spot to fish.
And what headland wouldn’t be without a historic lighthouse to explore.
Thanks for sharing this Top Spot with us, Peter. Tight lines to you.
When you think of Tasmania, perhaps a beach isn’t the first picture to spring to mind. However, as our tour guide Craig proves, sandy stretches in Northern Tassie do exist, and are without a doubt breathtaking.
Craig has ventured along the clearly marked 4WD track to Bellingham Beach in his Land Rover Discovery. Now let’s be clear, this is one track where you certainly need the capabilities of a Land Rover to negotiate. Along this coastal route track you’ll definitely encounter your fair share of bogs, slopes and soft sand.
Catering for the more experienced adventurer, the track is clearly marked and even offers a place to safely deflate your tyres. The campsites are un-serviced, so you’ll need to pack the lot.
Then once on the beach, it’s surf fishing, walking and taking in the stunning vista.
Thanks, Craig for sharing.
Deep within the Kennedy Range National Park in Western Australia, Top Spot tour guide Lee acquaints us with the stunning Honeycomb Gorge. Now this spot isn’t a hop to get to, rather it’s a 2 day drive from Perth. Thankfully, had his trusty Land Rover Freelander to get him there.
Honeycomb Gorge received its name because of the unique potted hexagonal formations you’ll find on the rock faces, created by generations of water spray and wind from seasonal storms.
This spot is as outback as it comes: red sand dunes, fields of spinifex, and wattle. So you’ll need to load your Land Rover with all the essentials, including water, if you’re going to make the trek.
Thanks, we hope everyone gets to comb this spectacular gorge at least once in their life.
AN INVITATION FROM THE GREAT OUTDOORS
The outdoors has missed having adventurers drop in, like the ones we’ve featured above. So much so, it’s put together a little message, inviting those with Land Rovers, to get back out there, now or sometime soon. While we may not be able to travel across state borders, you can still find a great adventure in your own backyard.
