WHAT: The Paddle of Aus is a 16,000km surf ski paddle around the coast of Australia. With an aim to paddle clockwise around the entirety of Australia excluding Tasmania.

WHEN: I endeavour to begin the journey on the 19th of December 2021 from the Gold Coast, arriving back in May/June 2022.

HOW: I will be on an 8kg carbon fibre surf ski and paddling with a carbon fibre Bennett paddle.

WHY: “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.

At this event at the Surf Club Restaurant and Bar, Coffs Harbour, I will be fundraising for Gotcha4Life, an Australian mental fitness charity taking action to engage, educate and empower to end suicide.”
