    Brisbane, QLD to Parkes, NSW

    Hi guys, We're thinking of doing a camping tour from Brisbane to Parkes over a couple of weeks, will be great to see the radio telescopes and satellite dishes on the way, which I have heard there are a lot of. Has anyone done something similar? We are setup for tenting just taking our Prado...

    Samford Showgrounds

    We went to Samford Showgrounds recently, just unpowered tent camping. Place is really nice, good views and a big 'first come first served' camping field. $10/night/adult and is very reasonable (no charge for kids) and there are spots close to the amenities. Although we are local to this area...

    My camping setup - 1983 Jayco Swan and 2000 Toyota Prado

    This is my camping setup. We have a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado VZJ95R towing a 1983 Jayco Swan 16'6" camper trailer. We have had the Jayco for a couple of years now, have had some really great times in it as well as some near-death disasters. Ours had the canvas replaced in the early...

    Gold Coast Holiday Park, Helensvale, QLD

Has a great pool and kids entertainment. This place has recently become a BIG4 location, and it has...

    Headlamp protectors - Prado 90

    ATF leak / mechanic advice

    Hi guys, had my 2000 Prado 3.4L V6 automatic serviced at my mechanic the other day, and part of that was to change the ATF filter and fluid. This was done and everything seemed OK for a few weeks of admittedly relatively easy, flat, city driving. However we towed the camper trailer for the...

    Rear recovery point when tow hitch seized into receiver

    Hi guys, My new (to me) Prado has had the hitch in the receiver for 19 years and it's seized solid. My mechanic had a good go but he said I may be better off just leaving it that way. That's fine for towing but no use for a recovery situation. Is there a workaround for this? Can a rear...
