           Before you contemplate a Landrover, buy the four map Inland
Australia pack put out by Hema. Apart from being the best maps you are
likely to find, with GPS coordinates and other hard-to-comeby information on
all the tracks, they include a booklet on the making of those maps.
           They used Landrovers, probably donated, and in the back of the
booklet is a list of what went wrong with the vehicles, the list goes on for
a couple of pages. Read that list before you buy.

             I don't know why the Toyota Hilux hasn't been brought up. The
double cabin turbo-diesel 4wd with hard canopy over the back is a fabulous
vehicle for birding, costs about as much as the top Subaru, tough as the
Landcruiser, very economical, high clearance, will go places a big
Landcruiser won't, and last forever. Offroad it only needs relatively cheap
7.50 - 16 tyres.        The Prado is its luxury brother.
