There is no doubt that the outback is one of the greatest natural assets that we have here in Australia. With an abundance of interesting terrain, geography and flora and fauna to explore, it’s fair to say that no square mile is the same, and when you are travelling through such a diverse and challenging environment you definitely need a car that is going to be able to meet that challenge!

Here at Southlakes 4×4, our passion is making sure that all of our customers are equipped with the biggest and best in vehicle accessories, and when it comes to the outback, you can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned 4×4! To help kit out your vehicle for your own outback adventures, here is a selection of some of the best 4×4 accessories we sell.

Bull bars

There is no doubt that bull bars are an essential accessory to have if you are planning on going any further than 100km out of a metropolitan area! They are designed to deflect any object or obstacle (or animal) that you might accidently hit, and they can save both your life and the life of your car depending on the size of the obstacle in question! 4x4s are sturdy in their own right, but you still need bull bars to add that extra strength and protection.


You never know what kind of terrain you are going to encounter in the outback, so a hi-lift, sometimes known as a Wallaby Jack, is essential to have in the trunk. This kind of heavy duty jack will be able to get you out of all sorts of trouble should you end up at the mercy of unpredictable and dangerous roads.

Air Intake Snorkels

You definitely need some air intake snorkels if you think that you might end up with your vehicle submerged in water! If your adventures are going to involve being near or going through river or lakes, then these intake snorkels can help to keep your engine alive and healthy.
