The bottom line is what you intend to do with it. If you want to see a
Purple Crowned Fairy Wren, Eclectus Parrot, Eyrean Grasswren etc, then
a Subaru AWD is all you need. If you want to see a Princess Parrot or
a Black Grasswren, then you need something more substantial.

Forester has low range. does the X-Trail?
I accompanies a Forester across much of the Simpson Desert. Yes we had
a couple of problems with soft sand but so did a lot of other vehicles.

Can't speak for the RAV4, but the XTrail is pretty good - had mine a
while now (just coming up to 80,000 km) and never let me down (yet! -
apart from a puncture). Certainly goes places that a Forester won't
and is (in my opinion) nicer to drive than a CRV, but I have never
tried a RAV4.

I'm looking to buy a new car this month or next and
have narrowed it down to 2 choices...Nissan X-trail
and Toyota Rav 4.
