For ten years I had been planning a transcontinent expedition as a fundraiser for the Children First Foundation. My wife and I left Katherine April 2008 and arrived in Melbourne on the 22/11/09, walking over 6500 Km in total, taking in some of the harshest and remote areas of the planet.
Currently, I am organising another Transcontinental Camel Expedition from Perth to Sydney, again for Moira Kelly's Children First Foundation.
I work as a keynote Speaker, Ambassador for the Children First Foundation and operate Camel Safaris in South Australia on Beltana Station.
Perth to Sydney Thank You Camel Expedition Aims and Objectives
The Perth to Sydney Thank You Camel Expedition will leave Perth early 2013 to travel across the Nullabor, through the deserts of Western Australia and South Australia, across New South Wales and enter Sydney on the 22/12/2013, (Trishna and Krishna's Birthday), in support of Moira Kelly's Children First Foundation.
