The size of the trunk of this Ford Falcon stationwagon is why so many backpackers pick this model - you can sleep in it, bring in your surfboard or a bike and still have lots of room for your luggage.
Another reason why the Ford Falcon backpacker station wagon model is so popular, is of course the price. As a backpacker you will have to make the choice on how to get around Australia and you will find that the Ford Falcon Stationwagon cost about the same as travelling by bus. So, only one question remains: What do you prefer?
The Ford Falcon holds up to five backpackers when driving. Two in the front seats and three in the back. The trunk easily sleeps two people but the rental price also includes a camping tent for 2 people. Basically you can sleep 4 people with the standard backpacker setup.
Further, the Ford Falcon is a reliable machine, so no need to worry about problems on the go. It's also a handy model and you'll soon enough get used to driving on the lefthand side of the road Down Under. With a 70 liter petrol tank the Ford Falcon station wagon can drive you 550 kilometers before it's time to refuel.
