Go-To Guide for 4WDs

A four-wheel drive is your ticket to the seldom-seen spectacles of Australia’s lesser-trodden paths. Join Hema, as we provide the reader with a broad foundation of understanding, on which to begin their own 4WD adventure. This informative guide has been produced utilising the experience of the Hema Map Patrol's thousands of hours of four-wheel driving experience.

Hema’s Go-To-Guide for 4WDs was the fourth release in Hema’s ‘Go-To’ series which contains Go-To guides for Motorhomes, Caravans, Boats and Campers. 

This publication is the definitive guide for 4WDriving in Australia. It covers a range of topics including; 

  • Types of 4WD vehicles
  • Gear and Modifications
  • Technical Tips
  • Maintenance
  • Terrain and Driving
  • Off-road recovery
  • Car Camping
  • Inspiring Destinations

Hema’s Go-To-Guide for 4WDs is presented in a clear and easy to understand format and of course provides a selection of Hema’s award-winning maps.

There are roughly twice as many kilometres of unsealed roads around Australia as sealed roads; it only seems natural to own a rugged vehicle capable of travelling wherever the roads may lead. 

So where do you start?. Let Hema’s Go-To Guide for 4WDs lead the way.
