Roger Vickery

Roger Vickery is our resident 4wd and all things mechanical expert with a total love of the bush. When he’s not exploring the best Australia has to offer in a 4WD he’s at his property in the sunshine coast hinterland where he raises Arabian horses and droughtmaster cattle or zipping around a racetrack racing classic cars.
