A visual and cultural event to launch international adventurer Tim Cope's new book.
Come hear the Australian Geographic Young Adventurer of the Year tell the story of his epic journey across Mongolia on horseback.
During his life on the Eurasian Steppe, Tim endured temperature extremes from scorching heat in the deserts of Kazakhstan to subzero temperatures in the Carpathian mountain passes – with only his three horses, dog Tigon and the big open sky for company. Despite the harsh conditions, loneliness, prowling wolves and horse-thieves, Tim encountered warm hospitality from those he met along the way. Such is the life of a nomad. Tim will be showing incredible behind the scenes footage from his documentary (Banff Mountain Film Festival People's Choice Award Winner 2011) and there will even be a special appearance from his Kazakh dog Tigon! Tim’s tours have been known to sell-out so be sure to grab yourself a ticket while you can – they will not last.
Tim Cope is one of Australia’s most celebrated adventurers having won 2006 Australian Geographic Young Adventurer of the Year after his 10,000km epic journey on horseback from Mongolia to Hungary on a trail famously laid down by Genghis Khan.
