The World’s Greatest Living Explorer. Toured March and April 2019.

About this event

In March and April 2019, Sir Ranulph Fiennes toured Australia to tell his stories of epic adventures and explorations.

In this fascinating evening, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the greatest adventurer of modern time, told tales from his expeditions over the last 50 years – the meticulous planning, the highs and the lows and just what it takes for someone to cut their own fingers off when frostbite sets in – and so much more.

Now in his 70s, Sir Ranulph has packed more adventures in one lifetime than most people can ever dream of. Named by the Guinness Book of Records as the ‘world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

Sir Ranulph offered a personal journey through his life, from his early years to the present day. Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, the live show spanned Sir Ranulph’s childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life and early expeditions, right through the Transglobe Expedition to his current Global Reach Challenge – his goal to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Ahead of the tour, Sir Ranulph Fiennes noted that he was “Thrilled to be coming to Australia in 2019."

"I look forward to sharing stories from my many adventures over the years. From my young days in the British Army, through to climbing Mount Everest in my 60s, it will be a fun evening reminiscing about some good times.”

An Evening with Sir Ranulph Fiennes was presented in association with National Geographic.
