This big brown land of ours has certainly got some out-of-the-way places and exploring it for yourself takes some doing. Having the right equipment helps, so winning some wheels in Mater Cars for Cancer lottery No. 105 will aid you in leaving no trail undiscovered!
If COVID times have taught us anything, it’s that our country is awesome and needs to be explored. Sure, sipping a latte in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower is all well and good, but Australia echoes with the sounds of absolute millennia, not just centuries. And you can’t just take a bomber to nowhere; you need specialist equipment.
That’s where Mater Cars for Cancer comes in. Lottery No. 105 features an array of Toyota products proven to handle things off the beaten track. Best of all, they all come with gear to help you explore further. To get in on this and get away, buy a ticket and be one of three lucky winners.
The winner of Draw Three in Mater Cars for Cancer’s latest lottery will find themselves behind the wheel of a Toyota RAV4 Edge Hybrid. The plucky little RAV has been a small-to-medium SUV mainstay for almost 30 years. In that time, it’s grown in size and door count to cater to the needs of the market, without encroaching bigger brothers like the Kluger and Fortuner. During 2020 and 2021, the RAV4 posted the most sales of any SUV and of that, the Hybrid version accounted for the majority. Buyers are onto a good thing, and you can be too.
While the RAV4 Hybrid sips fuel, blitzes the city grind and fits whole families in comfort and safety, it’s not without off-road chops. If that’s your bag, you can use the RAV4 for some light, unbeaten-track duties, maybe to your favourite lake, reservoir or cove. Why? Because Mater Cars for Cancer are throwing in a Ride the Tide stand-up paddleboard. Exploring the nooks and crannies of your local lake, going to places that fourbies fear to tread; it sounds so zen.
Buying a ticket to achieve this reservoir-ready relaxation might seem extreme, but even those tickets not pulled out for Draw Three are winners. They win at benevolence as those dollars go towards helping people who live with cancer every day, along with those working towards a cure.
If your ticket doesn’t garner you a RAV4, fear not, because there are two other prizes up for grabs in Mater Cars for Cancer lottery No. 105. The Toyota Hilux has been around even longer than the RAV4 and if you’ve been on this earth as long as me, you’ll remember the adverts; they’re unbreakable.
The 2022 Toyota Hilux Rugged X on offer in Draw Two is even more unbreakable thanks to a bunch of handy mods, including heavy duty suspension, an underbody protection package, a hoopless steel front bullbar and a front bash plate. Getting to where the roads disappear and the narrow trails start won’t worry the lucky prize winner either; it just means it’s time to unload the KTM EXC-F dirt bike and keep on going.
Of course, not everyone wants to head into that level of adventure. Some people would prefer to get to the end of the road and stay there, taking in the sights and scenes at a less cracking pace than the KTM offers. If you’re one of those people, the Draw One prize will cop your interest; a brand-new Toyota Prado Kakadu and Coromal Thrill Seeker semi off-road caravan valued at $168,377.
The Kakadu sits at the top of the Prado tree, packing in the most luxury, safety and off-roading features of the range. Toyota’s brilliant Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System keeps the car flat on the bends as well as improving off-road agility. The multi-terrain monitor uses four cameras to give drivers an all-round view of the vehicle’s surrounds both on and off road and Crawl Control means dealing with a dodgy descent is as simple as pointing and steering.
Behind the Prado sits a Coromal Thrill Seeker caravan, giving the lucky winner a home base when off, leaving no trail undiscovered. Coromal have been industry leaders since 1977 and show no signs of abating. Their 18-foot Thrill Seeker has a queen sized bed, a shower, toilet and even a washing machine; all the amenities of home. In fact, the indoor-outdoor speaker system means it’s got one up on my house; where do I sign up?
Mater Cars for Cancer have spent a lot of years giving away cool stuff and this draw is no different. They’re out there to help and if that means assisting adventure aided by a Toyota off-roader and a few tasty toys, then that’s a win. All you’ll need is a ticket and a little bit of luck in Draw Three, Two or One.
