‘connecting you with adventures that are changing our world’
Meet the Drop Bear Adventure’s founders!
Mark aka PAPA BEAR
Mark is as Aussie as they come mate, not quite full bogan but pretty close. He loves a beer on the beach, camping in the bush and spinning a yarn around the camp fire. Mark is the OG of this company, a legend of a tour guide and an all round stand up bloke.
Hana aka MUMA BEAR
A born Aussie but baked brit this girl has one hell of a story to tell. The queen of organisation and getting shit done, Han is the chick you call when you have a crisis. As kind as she is hard working, this beast of a women knows her stuff.
As mentioned, Drop Bear Adventures was founded on passion by Hana and Mark in 2011. You may know them from our famous in house K’gari Fraser Island Adventures tours. We believe that true passion creates truly great travel experiences. We have grown since then. Jana and Chad (chadandjana on insta) who are full time travelers, on their way around Australia in their Troopy, have joined us recently. They can easily contribute with their experience and knowledge of things to do around this wonderful continent and how to get around safe and sound, incl. car maintenance, day to day camping, and self-sufficient travelling.
We are friends that laugh and work together, not for the money but for the common interest in travel and trying to help other people making unforgettable memories! The Best Ideas come to you while having a cold one watching the sun set by the beach 🙂

Life is just a series of experiences really, some are great and others not so much. Some of those not so great experiences can easily be avoided though if we are open to a little guidance along the way. The traditional lore of the land in which we call home, K’gari, which is Butchulla country says that if you have plenty of knowledge you must share. So here we are, living by ancient lore which has led us on our mission to share. Knowledge is power they say, and we believe it. Knowing enables us to make better choices which in turn makes us better people for ourselves, each other and our planet.
Our Eco Conscious Travel Guide is this whole web site, our gift to YOU! Flick through it, read, learn, explore and book. Experience and come back, share with us and with others.
Our goal is to curate a list of businesses (Top Pics), that are eco conscious through and through or in the process to make better choices for our planet, our future. As well as provide you with tips and tricks in our blogs (Travel Advice).
Reach out to us if you know a great business with a great mission! Reach out if you are one of those businesses, we are happy to shout your name out far and wide! Because you earned it!
Also hit us up about our regular Beach Clean Ups on K’gari (Fraser Island)!
Our focus is in putting great all over experiences together for you! We love our country and it’s long heritage and checkered past. There is no denying it was not pretty at times. And this is where we want YOU to experience it from all aspects. Learn the culture, snorkel with turtles, see the beautiful reef from above, learn the history, sleep under the bright milky way at night and take in the true spirit of Australia. Can’t find what you want? Call/message/email us we are always happy to help!
