  1. Nice film. It a big shame you sold out to the Americans. Don't you have any pride? I am not an Aussie by the way. I would never sell out my culture like you have just done.

  2. As an Australian, I feel embarrassed for this bloke :-/

    All of your distances are wrong. Yes you're using miles but atleast get it right. U can't just swap out km to miles. It's 400km to goyders line, not miles. And almost 6000km to Darwin, not miles

    Great trip to test out the very "under rated" AWD family car.

  5. DeepBlackice says:

    I know how capable a Subaru is and I hope these guys decreased their tyre pressure for maximum traction

  6. MT, more videos like this please!

    Crocs are only dangerous if you find yourself in their mouth. Besides that they're harmless.

  8. I own a Forester and live in a National Forest. XD

  10. He's not James May, but he's James May Australian cousin

  12. Great video but you should avoid extreme close ups of your face until you get some serious dental work.

    Nice vid but you need to narrate a little slower. A couple seconds pause in between sentences would make thing easier to understand and give a chance to look at the pretty pictures.

    And you shiny new hat looks stupid

  15. No wonder Australia is dubbed the 54th State of the US. Once we had individuality – unique aussieness that made Australia Australia – today we are too eager to shine the boots of the American Masters – no longer comrades in arms – Master and Servant. Anything Aussie that Yanks might blip their eyes at- what? Humble Aussies quickly resort to the US vernacular to avoid offending the Master – after all if it ain't recognised in America might as well dump it eh?

    Nice place, but I wouldn't bring my baby there.

  20. Tommi Burr says:

  21. Great Trip and Video! But why use Imperial measurements? Aussies have evolved away from that mess!

  22. Jacob TJ says:
