We're all busy people — so it's important to take time out every now and then. Well, that's the excuse we came up with. Last year I had the chance to drive to the northernmost point of Australia with Volkswagen in the Amarok.
With that trip a fond, but albeit distant memory, we conjured up a plan to drive another ute — a Mazda BT-50 to the southernmost point in Australia. After some research, we discovered that the southernmost point of Australia is actually inaccessible by car.
The southernmost tip can only be accessed by trekking or cycling from Cockle Creek to the tip that forms Australia's southernmost point. So the plan was to saddle up with my colleague Matt Campbell and venture south from Melbourne to explore more of our awesome country.
