Trevor spent 30 years mapping the Northern Territory. In the 1990’s he started running diving and fishing charters in Darwin, as well as organising dive trips to Asia and the South Pacific. He moved to the Gove Peninsula in 2001 having long recognised the region’s huge and untapped remote area tourism potential.
"I believe this is Australia’s last frontier with its undiluted Aboriginal culture, pristine landscape and unspoilt fishing, what could be better."
Helen is an Arrente woman from Alice Springs having worked with Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory and Western Australia for 17 years before working fulltime at Banubanu with Trevor in 2009. She runs the administration aspects of the business. Since its inception she has taken periods of time out to hone up on her business skills to help her manage day to day operations and to focus on the enterprise’s future direction.
"I am convinced of the value Banubanu adds to peoples’ lives; it gives guests time to sit back and reflect on their day-to-day reality of the busy world that we live in today."
