HELLO + WELCOME to the very first Troopy.com.au blog post!

Whoah, what’s that noise…??  I think it’s the sound of crickets! 😀

If  you ever want to start something, you just have to start at the start.

So here we go. We’d love you to join us for the ride.



Who are we? What’s this all about? Click here to read the ABOUT page.

In short, we are Gareth & Kirsty. Some of you might know us as the Aussie Overlanders. We love Troopys. And troopy.com.au is just a fun little side project we are cooking up. Also, we creatively named our Troopy… Troopy. So, you could say this site is named after our beloved rig 😉



The vision for this blog is to have a bit of FUN (note the bold, capitals AND underlining!) by showcasing awesome Troopy set-ups from around Australia and the World.

When we started out with our Troopy it was really difficult to find photos and run-downs on good set-ups. Of any 4×4 let alone a Troopy.

These days it’s a lot easier but they just seem to get lost in the never-ending scroll of Facebook.

So let’s do something about that.



Yep, we really truly want to feature your set-up. If you would like your Troopy featured give us a yell. We’ll send you across a few questions and you’ll need to send us 5-10 good photos of your set-up.

Also, if you have a blog/website/facebook page we’ll make sure we link to you so people get sent your way.

Or if you just think it would be cool to have a webpage featuring your rig to share amongst your mates we’ll send you the link. Easy.

Down the bottom of the page is an email icon – hit that and get in touch.



Here’s a snapshot of where we are starting from.

Zero online crew

    Well hi there Gareth and Kirsty, I came across your overland travel site late last year and I have gone back there a couple of times recently. We have just purchased a 2009 Troopy and now the fun begins, kitting it out. I have a few basic ideas of what I would like it to be like but it is going to be a steep learning curve. Obviously I feel the first area to look at is the electricals, a dual battery system and fridge. Once I know where the fridge is going then I can build the other bits around it.
    Okay I will keep this short for now. Really glad to see that you now have this webpage set up and I look forward to reading and hearing about what other Troopy lovers are getting up to.

      Thank you so much for the encouragement Clive & Cathy! You guys are absolute legends. How is your troopy going now? Have you been able to make much progress? So jealous… at the start of everything we useto sit inside the rig and dream up ideas on sketch paper! Thanks for being here. We are slowly getting things going (slowly,…but as fast as we can). Let us know where you are at. I’d love your rig to be featured here once it’s ready! 😀 K+G #troopycomau
