Tour operator

Get ready for an exciting four-wheel drive adventure with Mountain-Top Experience. Experience a fully equipped Land Rover Defender four-wheel drive expedition vehicle. Set up for either a short passenger tour, or an extended camping trip, hear the turbo-diesel humming as you wind up into the spectacular Victorian Alps.

Cresting a ridge brings awesome views of endless ranges of mountain wilderness. Later, at your first river crossing you stop for lunch and cool off in the crystal-clear water. Your route then takes you through the site of an old gold-mining town where you take time out to explore.

Got your own 4WD? The tough four-wheel driving trails in the region are handled capably in a guided tag-along convoy. You also have confidence in your vehicle's capabilities thanks to your driver training with the Mountain-Top Experience team.
