Default Farm with treasures

Looking for the location of this farm.
Or any contact details of the owner.
The photos are old, dated from the 90s or early 2000s.
Looks to be some very nice items.
I'm interested in the Land Rover as it's a rare model.
(Yes, I know, I'm crazy)

Does anyone recognise the photos?

Ryan,

Could you please explain to us mere mortals in the northern hemisphere what is so rare about the Land Rover?

I see a winch behind the bulkhead and I am assuming that the mast is something to do with it also. I see a blanking plate or locker door on the side.

I think the mast may be a read hearing and that in fact it may be a portee for Wombat or may an M series 106 recoiless of US origins and the side door gives access to the winch to hand crank the weapon up into the load bed and the boxes n either sides carry the rounds.

How am I doing?

It looks like a recovery version, that mast is actually the jib. Ryan, is that the remains of a 2 pounder attack carrier in the other photo?

Yes, a wrecker. Only 6-8 made.
And yes that is a 2pdr tank attack carrier. I'm lead to believe that it sold some years ago and is no longer there.
