Scott Bennie - Dad & Chief Adventurer
Scott is the adventure Dad! He believes that adventure is in the heart of every boy, himself included and he’s passionate about family and spending time with his boys. His father passed away when Scott was only 9 and so Scott is determined to be a dad who makes the time to build memories with his sons, and to build a deep relationship with each of them.
With a background in competitive cycling and mountain bike racing, Scott has recently added trail running to his repertoire. Recent highlights for Scott have been riding the White Rim Trail in Utah and hiking up Mt Barney with his son, Zach. Scott looks forward to many future adventures with his family.
Scott does the photography, videography and editing for Sons of Adventure, as well as creating most of the social media content.
Scott feels that being a Father is an adventure all of its own, and he doesn’t take it lightly.
The Boys - Zach, Eli & Cadel
Zach, Eli and Cadel are typical energetic boys who love to run, jump, ride and explore. Like most kids, they also love computer games and spending time watching YouTube, which is why Scott and Kate understand the importance of getting the kids away from screens to have a real-life adventure.
The boys are keen sportsmen and between the three of them, they have competed at a state level in cross-country, AFL and swimming. They have also been on the podium for the Ipswich Trail Run Series, Warwick Pentath-run Cross Country and the Giant 3PLUS3 Kids Mountain Bike Race.
They love a challenge and anything fun.
