So, it's okay to have a best friend that's a website - right? We Are Explorers has been steadily building a catalogue of microadventures to tick off in Australia, with a heap of adventurers and storytellers. We chat to founder Henry Brydon about his project, and of course, what to do for the impending Easter long weekend.

Where do you go to get inspired? To learn about what Australian and New Zealand top athletes are up to? To conjure grand plans for your next adventure? To share stories of exploration and the human will? The answer – right here. 

We invite you to join us in enriching lives with stories of the outdoors, told through imagery, videos, athletes and events that we support, and the greater outdoor community of Australia and New Zealand.
