Top of Down Under

The true essence of Top of Down Under is one girl's dream to encourage others to embrace the outback, the ancient coastlines and remote mountain ranges that Australia has to offer.

Top of Down Under is a travel adventure TV series that has been on air since 2011. Hosted by Penny Wells –
her zest for everything outdoors finds her amongst rod bending game fish, mud slinging four wheel driving, bow hunting for her dinner or on the back of a trail bike exploring.

Penny and her company of female presenters all live by the same motto: “Pack up the fourby’s, hook on the camper, load the boat and let the journey begin!”






Touring the Victorian High Country is one of the most authentic four wheel drive destinations you could choose.  Penny Wells guides you through this unforgettable region of Australia.
Full of history from old mining towns, bush-rangers and cattlemen, take a breath of crisp alpine air and discover the huts they left behind.
With an extensive array of four wheel drive tracks of varying difficulty it is a recipe for vehicle recoveries, river crossings and jaw dropping hill climbs.  Whatever your taste for adventure includes the Victorian High Country has it all.


Penny has headed South to show you the top spots of down under. In this episode she's in the Victorian High Country. Penny sets off from Melbourne through Woods Point and up to Mt Skene. This time Ironman 4x4's Adam Craze is along for the ride.

On this episode Penny teams up with Jay and Tia McIntosh who will be driving the re-vamped Red Nissan. They set off North of Dargo on the Dargo High Plains road, heading towards Mt Blue Rag, Twin Jeep Track and the Buffalo Range Track. Their final resting point of this trip is at the Maguire Point Camping Area. 


Penny's heading South from Myrleford past Lake Buffalo and back into the Alpine National Park, stopping along the way to check out some High Country huts, waterfalls and 4WD tracks.
