With over a million kilometres under his belt and a love of the outback, Roothy and his iconic 45 Series LandCruiser "Milo" have become key figures in the 4WD community.

A national legend deserves a legendary farewell, and Roothy's farewell BBQ won't disappoint. Hosted at the Landcruiser Mountain Park, QLD from 1pm-9pm, it'll be the biggest event of 2014 and your chance to farewell Roothy in person! Come celebrate a lifetime of adventure and offroad experience and relive 15 years of classic Roothy moments.
