Noah Stammbach is a microadventurer and visual story teller whose adventures throughout Australia have this rare ability to stir the wanderlust in anyone who looks at his images…his 37,000 Instagram followers will probably testify to this. From the desert to the sea, rainforest to snow, Noah simply can’t get enough of the wild.
Microadventures with @zeebachi 1/5 Noah Stammbach is a young Sydneysider and refreshing visual storyteller. “Near Narrandera on #thesilverplains roadtrip we stopped at an apricot farm on the side of the highway. The apricots weren’t fruiting but the farmer still ended up chasing us (fair enough we were trespassing). It’s little events like this that can turn a trip from A to B into a real adventure.” #weareexplorers
Microadventures with @zeebachi 2/5 “On #thesilverplains road trip we made a big loop through outback of NSW, the destination being Broken Hill. I was surprised to find out that Broken Hill is named after an actual hill, that is broken. When I go to a new place I try and focus on the details of the environment around me as well as the big landscapes, so here I took a photo of the shiny black rocks that made up Broken Hill. It’s important to take in your surroundings and appreciate it fully, especially if its a place so far from home.” #weareexplorers
Microadventures with @zeebachi 3/5 “In the past year Laurel Hill went from unknown to one of the most popular road trip destinations for photos. I was the second on instagram to visit this place, following in the footsteps of some photography friends. It’s still an incredible place to visit, especially for the ’Sugar Pine Walk’. It’s located 5 hours west of Sydney. As soon as you enter the sugar pines it’s like walking into a Californian forest. An adventure experience like this really feels like going into another world, and that makes this place incredibly valuable.” #weareexplorers
Microadventures with @zeebachi 4/5 “This winter I visited Charlotte Pass in the Snowy Mountains three times, finding no snow, a little snow and then a decent amount of snow on each trip. Each time it was a completely different landscape; this day was when there was blue sky. Regardless of the good weather the road was closed, so we ended up undoing the padlock and driving through the roadblock with our 4wd anyway. The walking tracks were covered with snow so it turned into a cross country snow hike which I enjoyed even more. The area is absolutely beautiful all through the year and I’ll be returning for spring.” #weareexplorers
Microadventures with @zeebachi 5/5 “Lord Howe Island, NSW’s tropical paradise. A short flight from Sydney, the island is cheapest to get to in winter (when the coral reef gets pretty cold). There’s no internet or phone reception on the island, which makes for an interesting absence from social media and technology in general. Due to cyclonic conditions our flight was delayed three days, but that was completely fine with me.” #weareexplorers
