Steve and Alison - Welcome to 4WDAus

Welcome to 4WDAUS, a trove of journals and photographs.

Steve Kruger and Alison Kruger, with their expedition vehicle 4WDAUS, have an incredible life as they travel full time across this incredible country of Australia. Throughout the site you will see a wide variety of quality photographs. These are accompanied by short stories of two travel hardened, modern day adventurers, who love to travel and meet people. You may even find a photo of yourself in there! Your online experience starts with our pioneering web page “Walkabout” from 2006, when the term blog was a new addition to the dictionary. In later years the round Australia trip theme continues with “Justabout 2015“, “Turnabout 2016“, “Roundabout 2017“,  “Knockabout 2018” , “Whirlabout 2019” ,  “2020 – WOW” and this year “Out n About 2021“..

4WDAus signpost to outbackIn more recent times our travels have taken us across the Nullarbor, into the Victorian High Country and Australia’s East and West coasts where we have taken some amazing photographs and met some wonderful people. We have stood where atomic bombs were exploded, travelled roads built by the famous Australian Len Beadell and captured some of Australia’s greatest icons like the Pinnacles, Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House and Uluru (Ayers Rock).

So please enjoy our adventures of travelling this incredibly exciting planet. And if by chance you see us on the road, give us a wave and say hi, we would love to meet you!
