Brisbane to Broome – April 2017The professional organisation of initial email right through to collection and advise on where to pick up the vehicle was fabulous. Our 4WD was fully equipped and ready to go… no problems at all highly recommend them. We did 7122.2km along the Savannah way from Brisbane to Broome. An amazing experience and having the Hilux 4WD with roof top tent was so easy to manage after some long drives…go for it you will never regret it.

Sydney to Broome – April 2017From the moment we started talking with the friendly and helpful staff at Australian 4WD to the moment we dropped the car off in Broome, it was a pleasure to work with this company.
Easy and seamless booking, first class vehicle and camping package, and hassle free pick up and drop off process. The Prado did not miss a beat and proved very comfortable and well prepared for the journey.
We will definitely recommend Australian 4WD to our friends and will also look to do another trip ourselves. Thanks again.

Cairns to Melbourne – January 2017“We wanted to say a huge thanks to Australian 4WD Hire for our road trip adventure down the East Coast of Australia. The 4 of us had such a neat time camping and 4WDing off-road. We were able to explore many places and it really gave us an authentic experience in Australia. We got to see some of the unique wildlife and enjoy forests, beaches and amazing sunsets in the wilderness! The truck was very new and clean and the equipment provided was all in good condition. The tent is super easy to fold out and set up for the night. Probably the most fun I have had in Australia to date and would love to hire your vehicles next time I am in Australia! Thanks again from the 4 of us!”

Perth to Pert / WA – November 2016
Dear All, I ‘d like to share with you my great experience with a trip through Western Australia in 2016. That was a month of a great exploration and great time. This was also because of having a great car J. Let me say that there is always a question which rental company one should choose and trust. And I must say that “Australian 4WD Hire” is the best choice. That was my second time I got the car from them and that was my second time I was absolutely satisfied. Me and my boyfriend decided to rent Toyota Landcruiser with the roof top tent so that we could get anywhere we wanted to, and sleep anywhere we wanted to, as well J. That was a great fun! (see the photos). Moreover, you also get anything you need for outdoor camping f.ex. fridge, water tank, table, chairs, compressor. So it’s really worth the price. We did an amazing drive from Perth to the south of WA along the coast, through Margaret River, Albany, then Bremer Bay, Cape Le Grand, and then we turned north to Menzies and Kookynie and went back to the West coast driving 4×4 track to SandStone, then going through Mount Magnet, Geraldton, and Lancelin back to Perth. That was a time of adventure, wilderness and pure nature. And whenever we needed support from “Australian 4WD Hire”, we got it. Even when there was one problem with a car alternator during our drive (sometimes it happens and one can do anything about it), we got immediate help, we had a new part arranged and we had instant help on the phone. One call was enough to be taken care of. And I was really impressed with that. So, any reason to complain and so many reasons to be happy . Try it! You won’t regret! . Wish you a great time in Aussie!Anita Werner / Poland
Perth to Pert / WA – September 2016
This is our second trip to Western Australia and we hired a car from Australian 4WD for both trips. In fact, our first trip with the 4WD was so fun and amazing, that we decided to take another trip the next year and use the same car company.
We have nothing but excellent things to say about the car: its quality and dependability are unparalleled and everyone was so friendly and professional during the hiring process! We also very much appreciated that the car included supplemental equipment for camping such as chairs, a table, etc. It really helped make our trip so much smoother. We also loved the sound system in the car and how well it ran and handled 4WD. It really is a high quality vehicle.
The 4WD definitely made our trip magical and we would not hesitate to hire from the company again!!Dan Smith / USA
Melbourne to Melbourne / Around Australia – August 2016Dear Maryna,
Our 2 month exploration of the centre of Australia was a great success largely because your fully equipped Toyota Hi-Lux was the ideal vehicle for our adventure. Starting and returning to Melbourne we managed to visit most of the famous places in the Northern Territory, the Kimberley’s and in the Flinders Ranges and camped in everything from wilderness camp sites with no facilities whatever to the well-appointed campsites in Alec Springs, Cape Leveque and Wilpena. We also travelled on all sort of roads including the Gibb River Road, the Tanami Road and the Oodnadatta Track all of which the Toyota handled with ease. The car was in perfect condition and the tyres likewise and apart from a bolt shaking free on the engine protection plate, which was easily replaced, everything worked perfectly. We had no tyre problems at all and the fuel consumption was remarkably low. We travelled from Halls Creek to Alice Springs on a single tank of fuel. We especially appreciated the fact that you were prepared to service the vehicle in Broome half way through our trip and would like to thank Brendan for his friendly and professional help when we picked up and returned the car and Vitali and the staff in Queensland who were equally helpful.With kind regards, Alec Broers / Rhode Island – US
Perth to Darwin – July 2016Dear Team @ Australian4WDhire,
Our family tour from Perth to Darwin (July 2016) using the Bush Camper Large RTT (Toyota Prado 2015) provided by Australian 4WD Hire was the right choice. The equipment selection was perfectly fitting for us and we had a great time traveling up the coral coast and through the Kimberley’s! The car was performing excellent over all kind of tracks – Pinnacles / Francois Peron / Karijini / GRR & El Questro / Purnululu and through many other outback areas. I definitely can recommend Australian 4WD Hire to others heading bush as well!
Cheers Matthias Gsuck & Family / Lueneburg – Germany
Broome – Kimberley’s – July 2016– Thanks Maryna – we loved the car and had a great time touring the Kimberley – would definitely look at using Australian 4WD Hire on our next trip.
Geoff Hattam, Norwood / SA – Australia
Melbourne – Around Australia – July 2016– The car performed really well over the 10 week period and to my mind it was good value for the money, and I am pleased that I chose your company to hire a car from.
If anyone asks me for a recommendation I will certainly recommend your company.
Chris Hobson, St Albans / UK
Darwin to the Kimberley – July 2016– The advice and service we received before our trip from Darwin to the Kimberley in July 2016 was excellent. The vehicle was well equipped for camping and mechanically sound. Our feedback on a few wear and tear matters was well received after the trip and staff were receptive and courteous at all times. We would recommend Australian 4WD Hire to other travellers and will use them again. Thanks again.
Peter Banks, Teneriffe / QLD – Australia
Cairns to Broome – June 2016– Good to be home again, just returned from our trip from Broome to Cairns in a Toyota Hilux 2016 a Bush Camper RTT, covering more than 8000 km in 8 weeks. Our experience with Australian 4WD Hire was incredible. The vehicle was well equipped with tents, camp beds, folding chairs fridge and stove, basically everything we needed. This vehicle performed very well in the most rugged conditions, including the Cape York, Bungle Bungle route and El Questro’s challenging 4WD lookout tracks. All their staff was very helpful with attention to detail from the start of the booking process till the final check in. Big thank you to the team and the local agents, thank you for this wonderful experience. We are already panning our next year trip and we definitely will be in touch soon for booking our 2017 trip.
Markus Schoenefeld, Frankfurt / Germany
Darwin – May 2016-Australian 4WD Hire were excellent to deal with from the moment we made the booking. Being novices to the area of the Kimberley’s and 4WD in general it was great to get a great reliable vehicle and service. Being greeted with a friendly induction was fantastic. Then on the way home, nothing was too much trouble including dropping us to the airport at 6am. Thanks Australian 4WD ! – we will be back for sure !
Shane Radbone, Wayville SA / Australia
Melbourne – March 2016-Thanks for arranging the pick-up so perfectly, even on a Sunday morning. Mr. Vanprooyen was very punctual, explained everything clearly, patiently and very friendly and the Toyota Prado RTT looked perfect (with new tyres and all the camping equipment) , exactly as Australian 4WD Hire had promised. With confidence we now start our one month’s trip in the Outback.
Dear Vitali and other employees of Australian 4 WD Hire and Van Prooyen Service, How lucky we were to find your company in a blog of 4WD travellers, when we prepared our outback trip. Understandably, especially Australia travellers from other continents would first hit the big global car rental companies on the internet and the big Australian camper and 4WD rental companies. One of these last companies we had paid a visit a few years ago in Queensland, in order to have a look at the cars they offered. But now, after our long NSW outback adventure with hundreds and hundreds of km on unsealed roads, we know the qualities of Australian 4 WD Hire. The large Toyota Prado Landcruiser was in a perfect condition and so was the whole camping and emergency equipment. The new tyres had the right pressure, airco was excellent (even in 4 weeks 40C heatwave) and EVERYTHING else too. My sincere compliments to this reliable company. And if anyone prepares a 4WD roadtrip in the Australian outback and needs suggestions, don’t hesitate to ask me personally about our experiences. Thanks again and hope to use your company again next year.
Kind Regards – Carl and Antoinette Verschuren, Eindhoven/ Netherlands

Sydney – February 2016-We were visiting our friends in Sydney and hired a 4WD from Australian4WD Hire and found their service great, they were very helpful and provided all camping gear so we didn’t have to worry about buying it. The vehicle was latest model Toyota Prado Turbo Diesel Automatic and Camping Equipment was used but in pretty good condition. The whole hiring process went very smooth and we didn’t have any problems when we returned the car. There was no limit on the km and we could take it off- road! We have asked a few hiring companies and most of them would not offer this service and some others had a big surcharge if we wanted to go Off-Road.
Best Regards – Dieter and Ursula, Bremen / Germany

Will definitely recommend Australian4WDHire again…

Brisbane – Trip to Fraser Island – February 2015– My wife and I would just like to forward some positive feedback to Australian 4WD Hire regarding our experience. We found the initial quotation enquiry via the web very easy and the follow up service by way of return email and then phone conversation was also very informative and professional. Our experience with the FJ Cruiser was tremendous and could not be faulted. We took the car up to Fraser Island and found it to handle all conditions with ease. It never let us down for the entire trip. We would also appreciate you passing on a special thanks to your Shailer Park agent (Will). I found him to be very informative, professional and thorough with what he was doing. He was also very thorough with handing the vehicle over and explaining all the details about the car. Please ensure this feedback is communicated to Will. Please feel welcome to use this feedback in any testimonials.
Regards – Brad and Amanda Ross, QLD – Australia

Gold Coast – Trip around Queensland – February 2015– The best getaway ever with the Australian 4WD Hire! If you are looking for Off-Road adventure and want reliable car, good equipment and great service and support you must try …Australian 4WD Hire. We needed a car for one month trip in Queensland and at the beginning we thought about renting a Bush Camper from ****** but we were lucky to discover so many negative opinions that we changed our mind. We thought “let’s take 4×4 car from **** or *****!” But it’s bad idea- regular rental companies don’t allow you to do Off-Road driving and even to drive on gravel roads. In Brisbane they told us in ***** that we could not go on Fraser Island (which is full of 4×4 tracks) with their car. So, we quickly tried to find another solution. Before we came to Australia we investigated also Australia 4WD Hire so we thought: let’s try, now or never. And that was the best we could do! We got Toyota Land Cruiser (almost brand new) and brand new camping equipment: sleeping mats, table, chairs, ( we had our own tent), gas stove and – what is really important- fridge (big enough to put inside the food for 4 or even 5 days for two people). We also had car kit like compressor and belts for windlass, so that was really everything we could imagine. Most important- we could go for unlimited Off-Road adventure!:) everything worked great and we had wonderful time driving on Fraser Island, Cooloola, Bribie Island and several other National Parks with 4×4 tracks. The guy from the company, Vitali, was very supporting and helpful and I must say- next time we are in Australia we will definitely come back to A4WDH and take their offer again. One can say: it is more expensive than in regular rental companies but it is really worth it! With all the fun you can have out of the 4×4 travel:) Thank you!
Best Regards, Igor and Anita, Warsaw – Poland

Perth into Western Australia – October 2014– A little thank you note from the Netherlands. My girlfriend and I arrived back home from a fantastic journey through Australia last Friday. After we parked the car at Crickey’s, we went to Sydney for a week on the East Coast. A nice ending to a great holidays in Oz with three amazing weeks in Western Australia in our (your) 4WD Nissan Navara. I think it’s correct Australian English when I say: she was a beauty. The service and equipment you provided us with made this trip a wonderful experience. So, a very warm thank you from the Netherlands.

Cairns into Cape York – October 2014– My wife, two children and I needed a 4wd for a Cape trip at short notice, the wife googled 4wd hire the night before we need the vehicle, Australian 4WD Hire came up and she gave them a call. Even at short notice Australian 4WD Hire was able to sort us out with a Prado at a rate much cheaper than other companies – no hassle. We picked the vehicle up the next day with no fuss and headed north. After a great week up the Cape we returned the Prado, after a quick check of the vehicle Will from Campers OZ ran us back to our accommodation in Cairns. It was all very easy and by far the best value. Thanks to Will from Campers OZ and Australian 4WD Hire.
Best Regards – James and Amanda, Christmas Island – Australia
Cairns into Cape York – September 2014– We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Cape and that was in a large part due to the equipment you provided. Thank you for your support.

Cairns – Cape York – Cairns – Darwin June 2014– My wife and I recently completed a wonderful Cairns, Cape York, Cairns, Darwin trip in a Bush Camper Large 4WD Prado from Australian 4Wheel Drive Hire. The Prado and all of the camping equipment was new, beautifully presented and easy to manage. There was a range of ideal insurance options, and the unlimited mileage meant there was no hidden after-shock in having exceeded the daily allowance. An outstanding feature of Aust4WD is that when making bookings and arrangements they are directly with the company owner, and not through a third person who can not make a decision on the spot. Congratulations Aust4WD as your service and equipment enabled us to complete a 5937km trip worry free.
