Season 1- Episode 1
Explore Like a Local with Brad Chilby.
Brad Chilby is a passionate local historian, nature explorer and award-winning landscape photographer. Hooked on nature and hiking by the age of seven, Brad has long been an advocate for the beauty and benefits of our regional environment.
Brad reveals interesting local history- including his own family story in Bulli, exposes the ugly side of curating a beautiful nature-based social media feed, and how our grandparents could teach us a thing or two about sustainable living.
With this episode, we honour the memory of Michael Waldon of Kiama, a skilled pilot, family man, and lover of the outdoors.
Read more about why we believe a connection to nature, is the key to environmental protection.
For me it’s hiking and exploring, I love going off the beaten track to places where there are not too many people around. Going further than I’ve been before and I love finding new hidden places around the escarpment, in the Southern Highlands and at the bases of waterfalls. I love the sound of water tumbling down the mountainside. Brad Chilby, Chilby Photography
