The Stuart Expedition

Designed to throw people from all backgrounds together to achieve a once in a lifetime event we are organising the Stuart Expedition, for which we will be recruiting in July 2013.

If you are a community group, organisation or individual in need of help, then we also support veterans in their community to organise events, develop their social media skills and plan effectively. Ideas could include clearing your local riverbanks, coaching your local football team, creating classes for people with disabilities. If you have a passion we will endeavour to find someone to help you do something with it.

If you are a veteran and have a passion for getting involved in your community but don’t know where to start, then contact us here.

The Stuart Expedition™
To traverse the great untamed heartland of Australia covering 3500 kilometres in 150 days by the best efforts of man and beast.

The Stuart Expedition™ team of wounded veteran servicemen and women will complete the arduous 3500 kilometre journey across central Australia on horseback. Working as a team, personnel from three continents will plan and execute a feat that has only been successfully completed once. The team will be carrying their supplies and sleeping in the wilds with only the stars to protect them, just as Stuart and his team did 150 years ago.

The route navigated by Stuart passes many of the most beautiful and ancient sites in Australia. Working closely with Australian and Canadian charities, and with the support of our sponsors and fundraisers the Team aims to complete the journey in under 150 days.

Through personal strength, team effort and relentless commitment the Stuart Expedition™ aims to instill confidence and educate participants in horsemanship, bushcraft, anthropology, geography and history in order to facilitate a transition into a meaningful and rewarding future career.
