“I love the silence of the outback. There’s a serenity which arises from the inviolability of the landscapes, the romantic beauty of its rivers and the awareness of travelling to sacred times as we discover ancient Aboriginal Rock Art sites”.
Sébastien, guide, adventurer, bushman, humourist, resourceful, resilient…
Sébastien has remarkable credentials for endurance and more than twenty-five years of wilderness travel in Australia. He has cycled across Australia five times. He has walked Tasmania from North to South, rafted the wild Franklin River and conquered the extremely challenging South-West coast “scrub walk” from Cape Sorell (Strahan) to Melaleuca – a walk very few people even attempt.
He has an intimate knowledge of the Kimberley, its rugged ranges and semi-arid savannah, dramatic gorges, rivers and tributaries, having walked and rafted for years.
His passion for the environment and for Aboriginal Rock Art naturally attracted him to the Kimberley. While exploring the Prince Regent River and the Mitchell River National Parks on foot, he found countless rock art sites where Wandjina spirits join the enigmatic Gwion Gwion paintings.
He has worked as an Adventure Guide for the renowned Willis’s Walkabout, leading tours in the Kimberley, Bungle Bungle, which he considers “his garden”, in Kakadu, Litchfield and Karijini National Parks. Internationally, he has led groups in the South and North provinces of New Caledonia and also in Patagonia.
