Thanks for your interest in working together!
Wanderstories is mainly based in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia which is situated along the east coast of Australia, mid-way along the Great Barrier Reef but also nestled beside various stunning mountain ranges. Wanderstories documents Townsville's - and the rest of Queensland's - natural landscapes (e.g., waterfalls, lookouts, mountains, etc.) and associated adventures (e.g., hiking, canyoning, climbing, etc.) as well as adventure travel.
While Wanderstories is a community and team effort, Luen Warneke has set and achieved goals over the years for first ascents and descents – most notable achievements to date have been the first ascent of Mount Pieter Botte, the first free ascent of Mount Diamantina, and the first descents of Crystal Creek and Waterview Canyon. Luen continues to learn and grow as an adventurer and accomplishes ever more impressive and challenging adventure goals.
By supporting Wanderstories, you are also supporting the development of theCrag (ranked 19th in the world, 5th is australia, and first in Queensland and Townsville), OpenStreetMap, Wikipedia, TrailForks (second in Townsville), and many other community-driven websites as Luen Warneke has spent countless hours editing and contributing to these resources.
