If I’m not participating can I still donate?
Yes of course you can. Simply click on the Donate Button and donate through the Facebook Fundraiser.
Can anyone participate?
The event is specifically targeted at 40 Series LandCruiser owners as these vehicles are synonymous with regional Queensland.
Can I just do one section of the trip?
While it would be great for everyone to complete the entire trip, participants can just complete one or more sections if that is all they are able to do.
My LandCruiser is pretty old and not in great condition, can I still participate?
Obviously, your vehicle needs to be registered and roadworthy, however the distances covered each day are no more than approximately 350 kms, and while there will be some light off road sections, most vehicles should be fine to complete the trip.
What if I break down or have an accident?
Whilst we will do our best to support any team that has a problem, participants are entering the event at their own risk and are responsible for their own vehicles and safety.
Do I need to pay for running costs and other expenses?
Yes you do, intention is to spend as much money as possible in the regions we visit and each participant is responsible for their own running costs and meals. Camping facilities at each location are currently being sourced and expected to be either free or at a minimal cost.
What do I need to bring?
You will need to be largely self-sufficient with camping gear, spare parts and of course some cash to spend along the way.
