Meet some of Scenic's Australia, Indonesia and Pacific Discovery Team experts
Dr Brent Alloway
Naturalist, Geologist, Glaciologist Lecturer and Zodiac Driver
An experienced earth scientist and professor, Brent has conducted research-based fieldwork in regions from Alaska to Antarctica, and others in between. He is interested in landscape histories, volcanism, paleo environmental change and human origins.
His diverse interests are reflected in the authorship and publication of several international articles, including in the prestigious Nature. Responsible for overseeing the monitoring and surveillance of New Zealand’s volcanoes as the country’s Chief Volcanologist (1998-2003), he received the McKay Hammer Award for his contribution to NZ geology. Retired from teaching, Brent is still connected with earth science research and enjoys the opportunities to share his knowledge during expedition cruises.
A sailor at heart, Ross has accumulated thousands of blue-water miles in smaller sail boats across the Pacific Ocean and in expedition vessels in the Polar Regions. His connection with the ocean goes way back, as some of his very first travelling experiences were through the remote islands of Oceania.
This New Zealander carries a personal fascination with the Polynesian mariners and migration, along with a broad range of naturalist’s knowledge from years of working in the field, which ignites his focus and dedication to the opportunities awaiting guests in the most pristine and wild destinations on our planet - “I’m truly grateful to be able to lead adventurous travellers into awe-inspiring environments”.
Naturalist & Paddleboard Guide
Adriaan has in depth experience sailing the Kimberley region and exploring the diverse wildlife it has to offer. From the seas to the sky, he is fascinated by the encounters with dolphins, birds and everything in between. For him, being surrounded by some of the oldest rocks on earth in a region that is, until this day, being taken care of by its native people presents you with a unique feeling. Their way of life is inspirational and humbling, which makes being able to briefly be a part of this alien world something truly special.
