About Us

Our journey began in March 2016 with an aspiration to unveil the splendors of the Australian outdoors. Founded by Matt Charlesworth and Rosie Bartle, our mission was to spotlight the natural beauty of Australia and foster a community inspired by adventurous and enriching experiences in nature.

As Humble Trail evolved, so did our vision. With Matt and Rosie taking a step back, the reins have been passed to a dedicated team, ensuring that the spirit of Humble Trail continues to thrive. Our transition from a community-driven platform to an editorial-centric model marks a new chapter in our story.

A Note from our Founders, Matt and Rosie:

“From a simple idea on a return flight, to a beacon for outdoor enthusiasts, Humble Trail has been our dream brought to life. As we step back, we entrust this dream to capable hands – a team committed to guiding Humble Trail with the same passion and vision. We are excited for the future, as Humble Trail continues to inspire and connect people with the extraordinary beauty of Australia.” – Matt & Rosie
