Gold Coast adventurer Geoff Wilson is set to push himself to the limit once again.
The local vet is training for another ambitious Antarctic expedition where he will attempt to break the record for the longest solo unsupported polar travel.
He is also attempting to be the first Australian to reach the Pole of Inaccessibility, and be the first human to climb Dome Argus, which is one of the harshest places on the planet.

“It has taken 5 years to get permission to enter the parts of Antarctica I want to,” he told myGC.
“There is 880 kilometres of ice there that no human being has set foot on, and that to me is exciting, but it also brings a whole lot of unknowns. Will I be able to withstand the temperatures up there?”

Once again, Geoff is hoping to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurses Australia Wide.
He is hosting the Pink Polar Gala Ball on October 19 in Brisbane to launch his expedition ‘The Longest Journey’. All money raised will go directly to the McGrath Foundation with Geoff and family personally funding the expedition with corporate support.
