Feature: Jeep Compass Trailhawk

Australia offers the sort of terrain that Jeep loves. The vast outback, the treacherous, lifeless expanses that are larger than some nations in Europe, offer up challenges that Jeep owners would die for. It throws up the ultimate challenge for an off-road junkie. But why am I telling you about a country where Jeep doesn’t have origins, and neither is it a world-renowned place for off-road events? That is because I’m here, sitting in a Jeep, looking at rocky mountains and a trail that’s famous among local off-road devotees. This isn’t the Outback, though. This is near a city called Hobart situated in Tasmania state – the state that broke off the Australian mainland many million years back.
