The Paddle of Aus

If someone told you they were going to attempt to paddle around Australia, 16,000km of coastline to be exact, your first question may very well be: why?

And I'd say that reaction is very valid and probably how I would have reacted a few years ago. But what if we reframed it and asked a different question: why not?

On the 19th of December 2021, I will set out from the shores of the Gold Coast to attempt to become just the 5th person in history and only the second female to paddle around Australia on a surf ski, but if successful I will be both the youngest and am aiming to be the fastest.

The Paddle of Aus will see me attempt to complete the adventure in 6 months or less, covering 50-100km a day. Along the way, I will be paddling past uninhabited coastline and see the most remote parts of Australia, encountering civilisations who live off the grid.

 

I will be using The Paddle of Aus as a fundraiser for Gotcha4life, a mental health charity which help Australians to establish meaning mateship, build emotional muscle and social connection.
