Biography

Peter Bland's lifelong urge to walk the thin line between adventure and catastrophe has led him to the ends of the earth and forced him to test the limits of his own body.

In 1998 the 36-year-old fulfilled his lifetime ambition, becoming the first Australian ever to walk to the North Magnetic Pole and the only one to have adventured to both the North and South Magnetic Poles. What makes Peter's accomplishment even more remarkable is that he completed his expedition to the North Magnetic Pole, hauling a sled 700km across the frozen Arctic Sea, 12 months after undergoing his second bout of major heart surgery. Despite these obvious setbacks, Peter's determination and vision enabled him to overcome the odds and reach the North Magnetic Pole while raising funds for the National Heart Foundation. Peter is now the National Ambassador for National Heart Foundation.
