See Vet Geoff Wilson & Simon Goodman tackle Greenland in epic Arctic Quest documentary

Gold Coast vet Dr Geoff Wilson is no stranger to feats of endurance.

He has crossed the Antarctic with a boobsled, kite surfed from Cape York to Papua New Guinea, and most recently, trekked across Greenland with his son-in-law Simon Goodman.

The pair skied and kited 2160km from the south of Greenland to the north in May last year, completing the trek in just 18 days and setting a world record.

They battled freezing conditions of minus 25 degrees celcius and the constant threat of polar bears, all while dragging a 150kg sled behind them.

The epic trek was captured on film, and on Monday 19 March at 6:30pm, the documentary Arctic Quest will premiere at Events Cinema Robina.

All Gold Coasters are invited to come along to watch the success of the record-breaking journey unfold on the big screen, plus Geoff Wilson & Simon Goodburn will also host a special Q&A after the screening.

Tickets start at $20 and include an arrival drink with all proceeds to be donated to The McGrath Foundation. There will also be fantastic raffle prizes on offer.
