Hi I’m Bianca. I have lived in and travelled to many countries – from living in traditional buildings in the remote mountains of Vietnam to traversing the hot deserts in Egypt and much more! I have experience trekking through mountains and valleys, and love encouraging young people to get out of their comfort zone and learn new skills or meet new people!

I have some basic skills in speaking a few languages and love learning about new cultures. I have also volunteered overseas many times and worked closely with youth groups in remote communities.

I have worked with youth in undertaking workshops and major environmental art projects. I love connecting people with nature as there is so much wonder for us to discover.

I have taken youth all around remote South Australia and beyond with Students Explore Australia creating some unforgettable experiences! I’m here to help support people through all stages of joining our programs and hope to continue providing these unique opportunities to others.

Matt has spent many years living the nature dream, from the Scottish Highlands to the South Australian bush, often sleeping under the stars during trail running adventures.

Most recently taking this to the max with 30 days traversing the European Alps, from Switzerland to Italy, over 1,000km and with over 50,000 metres of ascent, literally living in the mountains – the ultimate nature experience!
