It’s been a little while between drinks but you can always be sure there’s another episode of the We Are Explorers Podcast in the works!


This week Henry has an enthralling chat with Neil McCulloch, certified legend and founder of the First Hike Project, a volunteer-run community of frothers who take refugee youth out on their first adventure into the bush. 



From humble beginnings, this epic initiative has spread across Australia, helping countless young people make friends, learn about their new homes and integrate a little more easily.

Neil and Henry chat about the endless kindness and hospitality of strangers, the importance of the bush in Aussie culture and the resilience of youth.
