Meet North Storm® brand ambassador Gaz Hollis

Introducing you to Gaz Hollis – dedicated partner, father, adventurer, car builder and 4×4 off roader extraordinaire! Gaz is Naomi Revelly’s (aka North Storm Ambassador Nazz Dog Photography) partner and has been a part of the North Storm® tribe for a while now. So we thought is was only fair that we gave him his own dedicated page for being such a legend to us.

Gaz and Nazz ❤︎

Gaz grew up on a farm in the country town of Tamworth – New South Wales, Australia. Tamworth is located on the western side of the Great Dividing Range, and situated on the Peel River. Growing up on a farm meant hard work, and he spent most of his childhood tinkering with tools and cars or helping out with chores.


He quickly learned how to fix anything that broke around the place. Gaz would try to mend or improve cars all day long if it wasn’t for school hours during weekdays and chores during weekends. As far as he can remember, everything he has done in life has somehow been associated with getting or building his next set of wheels.

This keen interest got Gaz building his mint rig, 51CKGU. The focus of the build was to create an unstoppable rig off-road that was reliable enough to travel the country.

Gaz has always loved exploring and has so far completed two – thirds of the ‘lap’ of Australia, via the Highway Number 1.

Gaz is always searching for his next adventure in South West, Western Australia, and is waiting for COVID to settle down so he and his family can finish off travelling the country safely.

Another thing we love about Gaz is that he loves teaching his son ‘Roo’ about cars, camping and the wild outdoors. Gaz loves to show Roo how to set up a tent, build a fire, and cook over an open flame. Gaz say’s there’s nothing more rewarding than bonding with your son while teaching him things he’ll never forget! Here here to that!

We are truly stoked to have such a great down to earth Aussie family man on our team at North Storm Gaz and his family are the essence of what we stand for at North Storm. We are extremely lucky to have Gaz, Nazz and Roo in our corner.

We asked Gaz:

Do you have any other interests outside of 4 wheel driving?

Motorbikes – dirt and road – make that anything bikes, hunting, camping and I would say fishing but after travelling two thirds of the country and only being able to drink beer and feed the fish lately, I wouldn’t call that much of an interest, so yeah Ill stick with the motorbikes haha.

Who is your idol, hero? Who inspires you the most?

Hard to choose just one, as I have a few who inspire me. Have to say Roothie, Jase and Simon from All4Adventure, Shauno and Graham from 4wd 24/7.

If you could travel anywhere in Australia where would you go? And why?

I would love to go back to Cape York, there is just something about the Old Telle Track – the atmosphere and comradery of everyone there. Plus the camping, swimming and 4 wheel driving is something to be experienced. It’s a 4 wheel drivers paradise!

What motivates you each and every day?

The thrill of the next adventure and doing something new and something different and teaching my son new things.

What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime? Goals?

Finish the lap of Australia that we started in 2019 and then do it all again seeing new things.


What do you use your North Storm® gear for?

We rely on our North Storm bags to keep our gear dry and clean out on the tracks. No matter what mother nature throws at us, we can guarantee that our clothes will always stay dust and rain free inside either of our bags.
