My name is Chris Pennington, I have always been passionate about adventuring in the great outdoors and enjoying the incredible nature around me. My childhood was an active one, with many family holidays spent on skiing and camping expeditions. In recent years I have nurtured and developed my interests to combine a degree in commercial photography with my love of outdoor adventure. I have gained experience hiking many trails and mountains within Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia, cycle touring Europe and Tasmania as well as sea kayaking around the Port Phillip Bay and Western Port Bay. After completeing a 2 month cycle tour of Europe as well as a quick 12 day cycle tour of Tasmania, my cycle touring passion was extending out to find a bigger challenge.

Living in such a fortunate country with so many resources, I want to make it my mission to give what I can, to those less fortunate, throughout my adventuring. Vision is my greatest sense, it has allowed me to be a photographer, its has given me the opportunity to see this spectacular Taking on the role of youth ambassador, my aim is to help the process of children having the ability to seek help to restore sight and prevent blindness, as without my sight I would have been denied the beauty around me and the career path I have chosen.
