ABOUT ADVENTURE ABROAD
LETTER FROM THE CEO
We challenge the status quo in everything we do. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the status quo is to provide exclusive services, uncompromising luxury and premium adventure experiences.
I started Adventure Abroad to inspire people to do things that inspire them. To get people to believe that the way we live is only limited by our imagination. The best way for me to communicate that was through unique adventure experiences.
It’s my mission to change the way people think and broaden their horizons to create more opportunities.
With exclusive insider access, Adventure Abroad can provide experiences money simply cannot buy. From helicopters out of Everest Base Camp landing at our Himalayan day spa to beds inside your heated tents on Mt Kilimanjaro. The combination of expertise and luxury creates our truly memorable travel experiences.
We believe in providing value in everything we do.
CEO & Founder
About the founder
Tom grew up on a small farm in central Tasmania and was passionate about sport from an early age. He enjoyed rowing through high school and was selected to represent Tasmania before being drafted into his favourite AFL team, the Geelong Cats. Consecutive knee injuries cut short Tom’s dream of playing AFL in 2010. During this time, he also completed his Commerce and Law degree at Deakin University.
During his studies, Tom started a health and fitness business in Melbourne. This is where he found a passion for adventure travel, preparing and leading groups to major international marathons and some of the world’s most revered hikes. Tom has lead over 15 treks to Kokoda in Papua New Guinea, as well as multiple trips over Kilimanjaro, Mt Everest Base Camp and Tour du Mont Blanc.
At the age of 26, Tom set up his first office in his grandma’s spare bedroom and founded Adventure Abroad. He did so with the vision of inspiring people to broaden their horizons and embark on once-in-a-lifetime journeys. Today, Adventure Abroad partners with some of the world’s leading brands and works directly with leading global companies to provide clients with carefully crafted travel experiences.
Adventure Abroad is now recognised as one of Tour du Mont Blanc’s leading luxury adventure operators. These adventure expeditions also serve an important purpose by linking in with charity organisations from around the world to raise funds for a common goal. Adventure Abroad aims to help raise more than $1,000,000.00 in 2019.
