Ranger Dan's Eco Adventures

After studying the Australian Bushlands, Ranger Dan went on to become a tour guide at Australia’s Phillip Island Penguin Parade and Koala Conservation Centre. 

For years after he went on to travel some of the world’s most interesting and beautiful countries and cultures. From staying in the world’s biggest slum in Mumbai, India, living independently in the mountains of Nepal, discovering the untraveled roads of East Timor to coaching across Europe. Ranger Dan has done the lot on a shoestring and the more luxurious type of travelling. 

Spending his younger life in the car with Mum, as she showed around his overseas family to some of Australia’s most beautiful locations, he was inspired to follow her passion, to give people a personal experience while seeing the most amazing places.
