The beauty and desolation of the Coral Coast

‘The sky was big and empty…’ It hits you at your core – a vast expanse of sky that towers above you and beats its presence down on the empty land beneath. Colours are enhanced out here, the blues bluer, reds redder. Even concrete footpaths burn with their silvery tentacles...

Isuzu I-Venture Club tackles the Victorian High Country

Endless sweeping views across mountain ridges that reveal a sea of green as far as the eye can see. Crystal-clear streams snaking along valley floors. Towering eucalypts both alive and long since ravaged by bushfires, standing like ghosts stretching towards the heavens. The Victorian High Country is truly special, but you need a 4WD and some skill to discover it...
