The first of only two Horizons Unlimited meetings in Australia this year is being held this weekend in Western Australia with an East Coast meeting in November.
The meetings are designed to provide advice from real-world travellers to other adventurers on everything from first-aid to motorcycle maintenance, GPS advice, photography, camping and much more.
The Horizons Unlimited fourth Western Australia Travellers Meeting is being held at Fairbridge Village (near Pinjarra) from this Friday to Sunday (September 16-18, 2016).
The East Coast meeting is at Jindabyne, NSW, from Friday, November 18, to Sunday, November 20.
Apart from talks, demonstrations, workshops, discussion groups, challenges and competitions, there will also be inspiring films of adventurous worldwide travels.
Horizons Unlimited was founded by Canadians Susan and Grant Johnson in 1997 at the end of an around-the-world trip on a BMW R 80 GS.
Susan told us they wanted to “inspire people to go a little further, to inform them about all the things to do and to make contact with other people who travel”.
The Johnsons have been living in Australia for eight years and are now naturalised Australians.
