Our goal is to inspire a movement of everyday explorers, capture the spirit of outdoor adventure and amplify the beauty of the natural world.

Many believe that professional urban life means regular and genuine adventure is all but impossible.

We make nature more accessible for urban outdoorspeople.

Whilst most adventure brands speak to the elite, we aim to help and inspire anyone with a sense of adventure.

We’re making adventure refreshingly inclusive.

We’re a community that unites, inspires and facilitates the explorer within us all to discover adventure on their doorstep.

We celebrate the outdoors to nurture a fresh crop of environmental custodians.

Spending time in nature and living sustainably has never been more vital.

We’re focused on positive mental health, wellbeing and the environment.

We want to leave the world a better place than when we found it, that’s essential to everything we do.

We protect our wild places.
Meet the crew
Henry Brydon / Founder

Founder of We Are Explorers, he's always on the rummage for fresh experiences, adventure and all round soul nourishment. He rode a push bike from London to Sydney over two years in search of the ultimate adventure; a 38,000km journey through 30 countries that showed him the beauty of the world and the relieving qualities of chafage cream.

Tim Ashelford / Editor

Tim's a trail runner, rock climber and surfer who's stoked that he gets to pull together stories of adventure from around Australia each week for We Are Explorers. He's passionate about inspiring people to challenge themselves outdoors and build their love for the environment and real experiences.

Bee loves the ocean and exploring the outdoors. Grabbing photos and stories whilst she adventures in Oz and if her pennies allow on trips overseas. She's the happiest surfing in Byron with her friends or hiking through local National Parks!

Amy Fairall / Assistant Editor

Since her first overseas trip to the tiny island nation of Kiribati, Amy has been hankering to discover all of the lesser-known places. An avid environmentalist, Amy is passionate about doing her part to keep nature wild and preserve it for the next gen of adventurers (and this one too, let’s be real). She’s most content driving through unfamiliar towns and terrain and gets anxious when she’s away from the coast for more than a couple of days.

Jonathan Tan / Social Media Manager

Adventure called Jono at a young age and he very obligingly answered (probably on his Nokia flip). Having lived in all parts of the world spanning from Australia to Oman, his love for adventure developed at a young age. His passion for documenting his experiences lead to him picking up a camera and rumour has it that it hasn’t left his hands since. When he’s not out exploring somewhere out of cellular reach, he’s probably somewhere within cellular reach planning his next adventure.

Mattie Gould / Content Editor

Mattie spends most of his time on two wheels, enjoying the rad selection of trails around his home town of Canberra. Off the bike, he can be found searching for the stoke on his skateboard, surfboard, snowboard, slackline and any other shredding device he can lay his hands on. Mattie loves documenting his adventures with paper and pen, occasionally going digital with laptop and camera.

Olivia Burton / Event Producer

Liv is an eco-writer, producer, science grad & ocean lover. After moving from London to Sydney, she found her devotion to the outdoors, which led her to start writing about sustainability. She now splits her time between several not-for-profit organisations, traveling & attempting to surf tiny waves.

Heather Porter / Event Producer

Heather is an Aussie Adventuress who loves mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, and anything else that involves being outdoors. Heather is also the Founder of the Hike It Out campaign, making explorers responsible for their rubbish and any they find along the way.
