Deep in the Heart Of the Australian Desert
CEO Outback Australian Camels
My passion for camels and in-particularly, the trust based handling techniques I have acquired through expert mentorship from Australia's foremost cameleer, Mr Phil Gee, has led me to a point whereby I strongly encourage others to adopt this incredible technique of camel handling.
All of the participants of the Outback Australian Camels Safaris receive a taste of this technique. All leave with an incredibly strong bond and love for the camel and in many instances, a totally changed perspective on what the camels are all about.
Passion doesn't stop there. The trust based handling techniques are a major part of the worlds only Camel Expedition Training Course of which Outback Australian Camels is proud to assist those who want to take up the immense challenge of conducting their own camel expedition. Getting the right information from an experienced camel expeditioner could mean the difference between success and failure in situations where failure isn't an option.
My personal aim is to train as many strongly committed, adventurers into the art of camel expedition adventures, offering them my wide experiences of living and working in isolated and remote regions of Australia, the training I undertook from Mr Phil Gee as well as the training and experience of having completed the two year transcontinental expedition titled: "The Darwin to Melbourne Thank You Camel Expedition 2008-2009.
The sheer joy of taking adventurous people onto a safari and to see the change in them over the week towards camels, the environment and themselves is nothing less than staggering. The desert never lies and when in such a remote location, with no vehicle back up, no roads or tracks to rely on and just pure wilderness totally surrounding you, there is no option but to reflect upon the life left behind in mainstream society and plan your future direction in life. It just happens out there and to be trekking into such a region where nature rules, we once again become a part of the entire environment surrounding us. It's very powerful stuff indeed!
Finally, my passion to share the stories of a life in the bush, the experiences gained and the stories to be told through my public speaking engagements provides inspiration for the listeners to fulfill their own passion and dreams, strive for their personal best and never to accept defeat when the dreams and goals are strong enough.
Many say that I am a passionate man with passionate dreams, goals and ambitions.................you know what?
They are right.
Camels are a gift to us all when allowed to be and it is my goal to share the skills and knowledge of connecting with that gift. being that of the camel.
I look forward to sharing with you this amazing experience with the Outback Australian Camels and meeting you at one of my speaking engagements.
