Meet your host
Lisa is the founder of Big Heart Adventures and brings an extensive portfolio of personal adventure travel as well as boundless enthusiasm & proven expertise in travel planning.
Lisa’s attention to detail and passion for curating unique experiences has allowed her to plan travel, adventures & holidays for an extensive demographic of clients over many years.
An experienced adventure traveller, having completed expeditions including the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea, Inca Trail in Peru, Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, Overland Track in Tasmania, Milford and Routeburn Tracks in New Zealand to name a few, Lisa knows first-hand the challenges and amazing reward that exploring the outdoors adds to your life.
While I grew up by the Cleveland Hills in North Yorkshire, walking, riding and exploring, life put other concerns in my way, and I forgot what it was to be adventurous. A few challenges to ‘normal’ forced me to re-evaluate my direction, and in my forties, my mid-life adventures began. I haven’t climbed Everest or swum the Nile, but I have loved finding out just what I can do. I try not to set limits on myself, and I allow myself to fail but only if I ‘give it a go’ first.
From that first ‘crazy’ poorly prepared hike, to a fully qualified bushwalking leader, I have had opportunities to explore our South Australian backyard, seeing wonderful areas that many South Australians may not even be aware of. Outside of SA, my hiking adventures have taken me exploring in Victoria, Tasmania and most recently New Zealand with my daughter Ella.
I am passionate about sharing possibilities with others, and helping them to discover their own strength and capabilities through hiking. I recognise that everyone may be at different stages of confidence, and am always excited to see people connecting with the natural spaces around them. Adventuring at any level, and appreciating each environmental wonder is for all of us, and I feel it a privilege to be part of each individual’s journey.
