Tommo, the guy who has been to a hell of a lot of places and the guy who cannot stop chasing places to go!

Taking it all in

Growing up on the Mid North Coast from a young age he was behind the wheel of a 4wd, getting in precarious situations pulling logs out of the bush on his family farm at Wauchope.

Nothing like a bit of fun on the trails on your way to a location

Being hugely influenced by his Grandpa and Uncle’s stories of surviving in the bush, his Dads environmental science background and a lot of travelling at a young age.

Tommo has much to share in the way of off-road knowledge and experience coming from many years in the Aussie bush.

Coffs Coast 4×4 and Bush Adventures

He started Coffs Coast 4×4 and Bush Adventures to meet, share and educate people on the Australian bush and its rugged beauty. Whether it’s camping, hard tracks, easy drives, hidden history and points of interest, he loves finding the bushes hidden secret’s that’s for sure.

Coffs Coast 4×4 and Bush Adventures was started some five or six years ago and has allowed Tommo the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in the 4wd industry such as Kev smith, Pat Callinan and Roothy.

This couldn’t have been achieved without a great bunch of people backing him and his loving girlfriend Laura by his side.  

A road less travelled

With such passions to explore the outdoors how could we not have such a legend on our team! We are extremely pleased to have Tommo from Coffs Coast 4×4 and Bush Adventures on our Team at North Storm!

More about Tommo

Do you have any other interests outside of 4×4 Adventuring?

Not really, not to most people’s surprise. I pretty much spend every spare second I have either off on another adventure or dreaming about the next one while working on the 4wd’s in the front yard. Australia’s a big place you know.

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

I have too many to list, but I have two very close to my heart. My Grandpa, who taught me so much about life in the bush. Mostly, how to work hard, adapt and overcome things, even if the odds are against you. He was the smartest man I have ever meet and his knowledge of the Australia bush is second to none.

Another idol of mind which inspires every day is my good mate Kev smith from Woolgoolga Offroad. I watched him for many years on 4wd Action before we become close mates. We have a lot of fun opening up the Australian bush together to share with you all.

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

Victorian high country/snowy mountains are high up on my list of places to go. However, I couldn’t name one place, because I want to see it all! I’ll go anyplace I can point the Nissan!

What motivates you each and every day?

Honestly if the sun comes up I’m happy. Knowing that no one has ever seen it all and done it all and there’s so much out there to find and share.

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

I would like to successfully turn my passion into my career. Write more. Film more. Explore more and just see this country how it’s supposed to be seen, and that’s by 4wd. Bringing you the quality off road content that makes you want to just hit the tracks.

What do you use your North Storm gear for?

I use my North Storm gear to protect my camera gear and clothing while I travel to some of the most remote parts of the country. By car or on foot I need a reliable bag to see me through on any adventure.
