A night of adventure! International motivational speaker heading home

A Night of Adventure with Luke Tyburski will be an evening of inspiring adventure stories, insightful real life experiences, and an opportunity to experience an internationally recognised motivational speaker who was born and bred in Bathurst. 

Luke Tyburski grew up in in Bathurst. Leaving the Central West as a teenager to pursue his career as a professional soccer player, Luke played in the USA, Belgium, and the UK before injuries cut his career short. 

Luke was lost when he retired, and his mental health suffered badly. He hid his battle with depression, an eating disorder, and insomnia for many years. 

Throwing himself into the world of ultra-endurance challenges, Luke has took on and completed some of the world’s toughest adventures. 

From a world first 2000km in 12 day Ultimate Triathlon from Morocco to Monaco, running the infamous 250km Marathon des Sables through the Sahara desert as his first race, and even running down Mt Everest in the world’s highest ultra-marathon. 

Over the past decade, Luke has shared his inspiring, impactful, and adventurous personal story on stages (including TEDx) in 15 countries all across the globe. He will be live on stage for one night only, and for the very first time in Bathurst, on Saturday 22nd April at Bathurst Panthers. 

The evening will be hosted by local MC Craig Townsend, who will also be conducting a Q&A with Luke. 

You’ll also have a chance to ask Luke your own questions about his inspirational sporting career, and journey in life, before the raffles prizes are drawn, and silent auction concludes. 

After the talk and Q&A, you’ll have a chance for photos with Luke and to buy a signed copy of his Autobiography Chasing Extreme.
