Each and every day, our mission is to assist people into positive life changing experiences
Our story begins with a local Perth woman named Pam Riordan, who in 1998, had a dream to break free from the monotonous rat race and create a business that would allow her to combine her love for the Great Outdoors with a 9-5 job. Pam ran her first Cape to Cape Track trip in 2000 with six clients. It was the perfect opportunity to offer guided trips as the track had just been completed and there was no guidebook yet.
After many years marked by adventure and enjoyment Pam unfortunately faced some physical challenges when she developed Achilles problems in 2007, which made walking a difficult task. It was at this point that change was on the horizon.
Coincidentally, just a few suburbs away in Fremantle, Simon and Emily, the current owners of Inspiration Outdoors, had promised themselves a life full of adventure after hiking the length of the Bibbulmun Track, a 1000km trail from Perth to Albany. Despite returning to their corporate careers briefly, they couldn’t shake off the feeling of wanting more from life. Emily eventually pursued an Honours thesis in eco-tourism, which led her to meet Pam Riordan by chance.
Simon and Emily became the new owners of Inspiration Outdoors. Since then, Inspiration Outdoors has expanded to offer not only walking but also biking and comfort adventures throughout Australia. At the heart of Inspiration Outdoors lies the principle of embracing adventure and living a big life. As Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
