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.

Now the balls rolling. Had a Landrover Defender for 11 years, very
basic, poor finish, underpowered on the road but get it into low range
and it will go anywhere even with 5 kids and loaded up over the roof
racks and towing a trailer.

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.

like some car advice.
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.
For someone who just wants a bit of clearance and some
very tame (VERY TAME) 4WDing which would be the best
