The Aussie Bush Basher is an Australian icon but always an odd ball.
The Bush Basher is an Australian slang term referring to a motor vehicle which can drive through through the bush, across rivers, up sand dunes and anywhere else off road that a path can be forged. Usually these vehicles are four wheel drive making the drivers life a little easier. Other times an old sedan will surfice. These are utility vehicles with no need for good paintwork although the window screen will be protected with mesh from the kangaroos and cattle that might find their way towards it.
A set of roof racks on the top will allow storage for the necessary equipment for a trip in the Aussie outback. A saddle, swag (bush bed), ammunition, esky for the tinnies (beer) on top along with the first steer skull that can be found. A rabbit tail for good luck is an essential to hang off the aerial at the back.
What is even more odd about this bush basher is the type of road kill this driver has managed to come across whilst out bush. What is perhaps even more odd was this was in an arcade in the Melbourne suburb I am visiting. I saw the crowds of people massing around and thinking someone was handing out free food I wandered down to look. Perhaps Mad Max had come to town.
