Don’t miss your chance to be inspired by two extraordinary Australian adventurers, James Castrission (Cas) and Justin Jones (Jonesy) when the Extreme South Australian Tour 2012 passes through Canberra for one amazing night of adventure. On Australia Day, Thursday 26 January 2012, Cas and Jonesy created history by becoming the first and youngest pair to travel the 2,270km journey from the edge of Antarctica to the South Pole and back, totally unsupported. After 89 days of pushing the very limits of mental and physical pain in one of the planet’s most unpredictable and harshest landscapes, Cas and Jonesy completed their trek just in time for the last flight out of Antarctica for the season. Suffering from severe sleep and food deprivation the boys experienced hallucinations, continuous fatigue and painful injuries. Cas and Jonesy are highly regarded as two of Australia’s premier public speakers, inspiring millions with their contagious energy for adventure. The pair first landed in the spotlight after their world-first unsupported paddle across the Tasman in 2008. Crossing the Ditch has since become a book and documentary, airing in 58 countries. Come and hear their story of tenacity, mateship and survival. This is a night not to be missed – with incredible stories, images and footage from the ice as well as giveaways from The North Face, Icebreaker and Garmin. Come early to have a drink or pick up a copy of Extreme South – and have it personally signed by Cas and Jonesy! Tickets are sure to sell-out, so be quick and grab yours while you can!
