WE ARE INSPIRED ADVENTURES

travel for good

We're a philanthropic, whole-hearted BCorp fundraising agency that connects worthy causes with people seeking life-changing adventures. Are you ready to travel for good?

The depths of our lives are measured by the stories we tell; 

the moments that took the breath from our body. The people we’ve met who’ve climbed into our hearts. The causes we’ve stood for. The challenges we’ve overcome. The moments when, in an instant, our world tilts and nothing can ever be the same again. 

Whether they’re on mountain tops or in between a triumphant embrace. Be they amongst tears or sweat or joy or weather – these are the moments that shift us. That change us. That open the horizons of our lives entirely. 

At Inspired Adventures, we believe these experiences change not only our lives but move our world towards becoming a better home for everyone and everything.

That’s why we connect passionate, well-deserving causes with life-changing adventures to raise money and awareness for things that really matter. Our endeavours support the human spirit, a collective pursuit for positive change, and help fund organisations that work tirelessly to make the world a better place.

We are a movement towards the greater good, and we’re inviting you to join us. To take the leap. To believe in something greater than just yourself. To become a part of a global community of heart and hope and philanthropy. And we’ll be here beside you to help, every step of the way.

Inspired Adventures. Travel for Good.

‘Do dharma. Do good work. Be it’

Our founding story

Justine-India-1-1

Our founder and CEO Justine Curtis has spent her life travelling the world collecting experiences and seeking a higher purpose. In 2001 during a trip to India she crossed paths with Palden Gyatso, a former Tibetan prisoner, who, overcoming an unimaginable amount of struggles in his life, never gave up his resolve. What was his secret?

‘Do dharma. Do good work. Be it’, he clasped his hands around her and said. And so she did.

Returning to Australia with Palden’s advice ringing in her ears, Justine founded Inspired Adventures to connect people to the life-changing experience of travel in ways that helped charities continue to raise money for worthy causes.

“I wanted to give ordinary people, like me, the opportunity to do good for themselves and for charity; to inspire transformation through experience. I wanted to empower people to push themselves to accomplish things greater than they ever thought possible.”

So, what’s our ongoing inspiration? Do dharma. Do good work. Which adventure will this spirit take you next?

Bianca

Bianca Drieberg

Team Leader

Bianca is born and bred in Melbourne and travels often – her love started from running marathons around the globe. Bianca is all about setting goals and making a celebration of them, so kind of a perfect match for team leading with Inspired Adventures.

In her time at Inspired Adventures, she’s led adventures including treks and cycling in Vietnam and China which she does alongside her corporate communications career and side hustle of teaching fitness classes. And just when she thinks all of her passion projects are fulfilled she loves learning about the different charities supported through Inspired Adventures – it makes for really meaningful work with pretty amazing individuals that she gets to know a little better during the trips.

Barbara-1024x576

Barbara Comesky

Team Leader

Barbara is a New Zealander, born in Wellington, who’s spent time working in Asia and Australia before returning back to her home country of New Zealand.

Most of her travel is in South East Asia, including previous challenges hiking and biking in Vietnam with Inspired Adventures. Her favourite country to travel to is Iceland because of the scenery, which is so spectacular it makes her realise that nature is much bigger an dmore powerful than humankind. The most fun she’s had travelling is sailing and biking around the Croatian Islands, because the people are great storytellers and there is nothing like good Croatian food.

For Barbara, travel is a time to get out of the ‘everyday’ zone and be challenged in a new environment. She enjoys learning about different cultures, meeting new people, sharing time and wonderful experiences with them. When at home in NZ, you’ll most likely find Barbara out in the bush. If she’s not mountain biking, she’ll be running tracks in the Tararua Ranges with her dog Bella.
