From a young age, Hilary travelled throughout the vast landscapes of Australia with her parents and acquired a lifelong travel bug and love of nature that has taken her around the world. Spending part of her childhood growing up on a boat her family built, the ocean has always been a part of her life. Hilary naturally progressed to the adventure that was life working at sea after finding her first boat job working on a small expedition vessel on the Great Barrier Reef. This was the beginning of a seafaring career that has continued for over 20 years.
Having covered many oceans including the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Caribbean, Atlantic, Northern Pacific, Bering Seas and beyond, Antarctica was a dream. After tour guiding in Tasmania, she joined Aurora Expeditions in 2015 and is now returning to the team in her new role as Assistant Expedition Leader.
“I look forward to sharing my love of nature and the incredible place that is Antarctica with our Aurora Expeditions guests on the adventure of a lifetime”.
