Get to know us

We think the best ideas always hit you in the outdoors - away from all the distractions of day-to-day life. It’s the dreaming part of our story. 

For us, travelling Australia for six months gave us the desire to help others connect with this big beautiful backyard we share. There is nothing better than going outside, pitching a tent and looking up at millions of stars by the light of the campfire. First it was the two of us, then six of us. We continue this tradition of walking back into the wilderness to connect, to re-connect, to share, to learn and to remind us of what is truly important in life.

Do you want to join us? We are your Support Crew.

Why ‘Support Crew’?

Adventurers need support. And the best adventures begin with careful preparation and planning. 

This is followed closely by getting out and actually doing it; but along the way you need someone to encourage you and keep you motivated, to share in your successes and help guide your next steps.

We are the crew to support you.

Support Crew is more than an adventure and outdoor hire business. We don’t just want to supply you with the right gear, we are everything a support crew should be; here to help with advice, co-ordinate trips and we will celebrate your success and share your adventures to help inspire others.

Meet the team



Support Crew is the compilation of all the things Leah has grown to love – nurturing relationships, fostering connectivity with others and the earth, and having fun in the outdoors. With a background in training & development, event management, marketing, and client relations, Leah is perfectly placed to help you plan your outdoor adventure.

She has a current QLD Blue Card, is Senior First Aid certified, and thrives when using her green thumb. Her mothering journey continues to equip her and provide community connections to help support all types of families. 



Darren comes alive when he is in the ‘wild’. Outdoor adventure runs in his veins. He knows the importance of real relationships and values quality and efficiency. He’s a carpenter, a do-er, an abstract thinker, an ideas man. He knows about perseverance. 

In the past 12 years he’s completed three Oxfam Trailwalker 100km events, The North Face 100km ultra-marathon and the Kokoda track.

He has a heart for young people. He’s been a RedFrogs volunteer Team Leader, worked at youth summer camps and for 10 years he has worked as a Team Leader for Operation Flinders Foundation which runs a world-leading wilderness adventure program for young offenders and young people at risk.

He is Remote First Aid certified, has a QLD Blue Card and a Certificate in non-violent crisis intervention.

For over 20 years Darren and his wife Leah have loved discovering the outdoors and have travelled most of Australia together and now travel with their four children.

Around the campfire, when the flames burn hot and low, if you ask Darren, he might just share some words that continue to shape his life. Words that are worth sharing.

‘Buck up! Do your damnedest and fight. It’s the plugging away that will win you the day.’ Robert W Service, The Art of Manliness.

‘The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.’  Theodore Roosevelt
