Jase Andrews is the host of Australia’s number one four-wheel-drive and adventure show, All 4 Adventure. Driven by an unquenchable love for the undiscovered regions of Australia this modern day explorer is persistent and fearless when heading out into the wild. Jase honed his skills in the Australian bush from an early age having driven across Australia six times before his mid-20s, and he considers northern Australia to be his second home.
Growing up a farm-boy, Simon gathered skills and knowledge that serve him well in the bush. He has a passionate love for the ocean and spends all his spare time fishing and diving when based on his farm on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. He has travelled across the sunburnt land of Australia by 4 Wheel Drive and motorbike many times, each time striving to push further into uncharted territory. Simon’s laid back approach and ‘try anything once’ attitude are the perfect accompaniment for Jase. Together they are formidable in their battlecry – “we are all for the adventure.”
