This is the story of one man’s love for his country, his old Toyota called ‘Milo’ and some of the more incredible adventures they’ve shared.Out of Range takes you on seven of the most iconic four-wheel drive trips in Australia. With Roothy as your guide, you?ll find sandy deserts to cross, snowy mountains to climb, crocodile swamps to plunge through and sun-drenched beaches to soak up.
