Queensland explorer Dr Geoff Wilson will embark on a three-month journey, over thousands of kilometres, across Antarctica.

Dr Wilson will aim to complete the longest solo journey ever made by a human in a polar region, alone and unassisted, across 5,800km.

The 49-year-old tells Steve Price he will do the journey with a kite.

“A lot of it will be hauling, brutal pulling of the sled.

“It’s still tough on your body and you’re a battering ram between the sled and the kite.

“But it’s so much easier than walking a kilometre an hour.

“I couldn’t cover 6000 kilometres in one antarctic summer without the use of the wind.”

Dr Wilson is hosting the Pink Polar Gala Ball on October 19 in Brisbane to launch his expedition.

All money raised will go to the McGrath Foundation.
