The OTA Team regularly tests new 4WDs of all sizes, from small wagons to 4x4 light trucks. We don't rely on one-day press release drives at manufacturers' functions, but insist on taking vehicles on real bush trips. The OTA Team travels Outback - usually into remote areas - every year, evaluating vehicles, aftermarket accessories, tyres and camping equipment.
We enjoy a privileged status with some scientific bodies and with many Aboriginal traditional land owners that allows us to visit areas that are off-limits to most people, so we're able to report on sites that are difficult to access. We have also escorted scientists on journeys of exploration and discovery that have led to some ground-breaking finds.
