Meet Matt Charlesworth the winner of our Great Ocean Road VIP blogger of the year competition

Full time student, amateur writer/photographer & a passionate adventurer. You’ll find me out in the surf, discovering the outdoors or appreciating local music. I have been blogging for over a year, documenting my Victorian adventures on Humble Trail. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Business and also work as a Lifeguard and Duty Manager at an indoor pool close to home in the South-East suburbs of Melbourne. Some of my fondest memories of the Great Ocean Road region include chasing waterfalls deep in the Otway's and having my first taste of the Falls Festival last year. “Collect memories, not things” is a simple but enlightening quote that I live by… I believe that the value gained from an experience, will always outweigh that of any object. This explains my dream of someday converting an old van into a camper to see the very best that Australia has to offer. 

I am over the moon about the opportunity to blog the Great Ocean Road events for the next 12 months. Epic events such as the Rip Curl Pro & Port Fairy Folk Festival are at the top of my list, but I’m equally excited about the Otway Soup Fest, Toast to the Coast and Lorne Pier to Pub. Not to mention the other wide range of events that are scattered across the calendar. Follow my journey, as I discover the rich coastal culture of the Great Ocean Road.
