Event Details

You are invited to meet Michael Smith, Australian Geographic's 2016 Adventurer of the Year, when he introduces his new book Voyage of the Southern Sun.

University drop-out Michael Smith built a multimillion-dollar busines fitting out movie theatres around the world before restoring Melbourne's Sun Theatre and becoming one of the country's last independent cinema operators. After a business deal went bad and shaken by how close he had come to being wiped out, Smith took an even bigger risk: he became the first person to fly solo around the world in an amphibious plane, retracing the 1938 QANTAS, Imperial and Pan Am flying boat routes between Sydney, Southhampton and New York.

With limited flying experience, no support team and only basic instruments in his tiny single-engine flying boat, the Southern Sun, Smith made modern aviation history. He made eighty stops exploring cities and communities as well as visiting seventy cinemas - updating his online journal on the way and cheered on by 50,000 followers. 

His flight lasted seven months and took him from Australia through South East Asia, the Indian sub-continent, the Middle East, Europe, the UK, Iceland, Greenland, Canada, the USA, Japan and the Phillipines before finally returning to Australia.
