Ocean Talks: Spirit of Adventure

Thursday 02 May 2019

Meet Justin Jones, or Jonesy, best known for kayaking 3,000 kilometres across the ditch from Australia to New Zealand with James Castrission in 2007. Since then he has made a career of undertaking epic record-setting expeditions including skiing to the south pole and back and walking across the Australian outback with his one year old daughter.

Be prepared for Jonesy to take you on an emotional journey in what’s sure to be a fascinating evening of storytelling. From the desperation of being stuck in a current whirlpool in the middle of the ocean – ten metre waves crashing all around, the hunger as your body slowly breaks down in an unrelenting blizzard in Antarctica, and the oppressive heat of the outback as a plague of flies tests your sanity, you’ll be amazed at his stunning adventures.

Jonesy uses experiences from three of his major expeditions in a fun and informative journey into what adventure has to teach everyone, how you can apply it to your own lives and why people need to nurture the adventurous spirit in them.

The evening will be hosted by the Maritime Museum’s Emily Jateff, Curator of Ocean, Science and Technology.
