We open the festival with an incredible speaker who perfectly embodies our adventurous theme. At the age of 27, Robyn Davidson walked 2700 kilometres alone across the Australian desert, with a dog and four camels. She became instantly famous and then she wrote 'Tracks' – an international best-seller, published in 20 languages, never out of print and made into a Hollywood feature film in 2013. That success launched an extraordinary career as a writer, explorer, filmmaker and cultural commentator.

Davidson will relive the journey of 'Tracks', and what she learned from it, in a keynote address accompanied by breath-taking images from Rick Smolan, the National Geographic photographer who followed her on part of the adventure. Be inspired to take a few more risks and invite adventure into your life.

Presented by: Kathmandu
