You’d be hard pressed to find a bloke in Australia that has seen as much of Australia as Graham. It was over 15 years ago he did a full lap in his trusty Shorty GQ Patrol with a camper in tow, which kickstarted his career as a 4WD journo, and his friendship with Shauno.
Not only does Graham saddle up for over 200 days of 4WDing and camping with 4WD 24/7 – as soon as the camera's off he’s packing the 4WD to get away locally in WA.
When you spend as much time sleeping in canvas and dealing with different conditions all across Australia as Graham – you begin to know exactly what you need to make camp comfy, practical and enjoyable.
Graham is bringing this experience to 4WD247.com to ensure all the gear we offer is up to his standard.
You'll never meet a bigger Nissan fan than Graham. When he's not wheeling his Isuzu DMAX, he is driving and touring in one of his many Nissan 4WDs. Known for his love of Patrols, Graham has an iconic short wheel base GQ nicknamed "Shorty", as well as a GU used in his AusSolo adventures.
Graham also has recently added a few more Nissans to his shed. Graham recently purchased a brand new Y62 Patrol, chopped into a dual-cab by DMW Industries and kitted out with a canopy from Mits Alloy, filled with all of the fruit, to be used on the new Caravan Travel show. On the opposite end of the scale, Graham also recently won the keys to a 50 year old G60 in a game of pool against Shauno in Tasmania, filling out his shed with a piece of Australian history!
GRAHAM'S 4WD BUILDS AND ADVENTURE
Some would argue Graham lives in his swag given he spends more days travelling than he does at home, but when he's not travelling, he calls the south west coast of WA, about half hour south of Perth, home.
Haha, while that is a running joke among fans and the film crew, Graham is not Jock's dad.
