The Explorer Project is the beating heart of We Are Explorers. It’s a crew of writers, photographers and videographers from across Australia and New Zealand who can’t bear to be cooped up between four walls.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge that this land on which we tread, whilst beautiful and revered by us, has even deeper layers of significance for its Traditional Owners; we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.

We Are Explorers is aware that the land is never truly being explored anew, given the ancient cultures that came before us who still call this land their home.
