Warner Announces Plans For First Trip Around Australia Via Jet Ski

The next few months should be an exciting time for Australia’s Lindsay Warner as he plans to become the first person to circumnavigate around the entire Australian continent on a solo journey aboard a Kawasaki JetSki.

If successful, this journey could also put him in the records of longest open water travel as he plans to trek a total distance of 20,000 kilometers.  Warner is trying to raise awareness for Men’s health issues and aims to raise $100,000 for this awareness.

This trip will hopefully help him to achieve his goal.  He currently plans to commence the journey on March 1, 2020.  With an expected duration estimated to be 4 or 5 months, it will still be quite some time before we know the exact date of completion.

Warner has however setup a spot app so that anyone can track the trip.  This information as well as efforts on sponsoring his journey can be found in the media release below:

As a person heading towards my “senior years” I am very much aware of men’s health and the fact many men do not take the time to have regular health checks or not talk about many issues associated with my demographic.  

I am hoping this trip will bring more awareness to Men’s Health and excited to raise funds for this cause.  In total I am looking to raise $100,000 to assist in this awareness.  I hope you can assist.

For the last 3 years I have been seriously involved in and enjoying open ocean jet ski safaris.   Kangaroo Island in SA is touted as one of the most iconic, world recognised, tourist destinations but its oceans and coastlines are some of the most challenging as well.  Isolated and often storm influenced, it has its challenges

In 2018, I was the first to circumnavigate Kangaroo Island on a jet ski. Traveling approx 400 kms in 12 hours, over 2 days. After this, Tasmania was calling, and in 2019, I was the first to solo circumnavigate Tasmania on a jet ski.  This trip of approx. 1600 kms was achieved over 12 days.

In 2020, I will be attempting to become the first person to solo circumnavigate Australia on a jet ski; and to also reach a total distance of 20,000 kms of open water travel. This Guinness Book of Records attempt will be for the “longest open ocean, unsupported journey by aquabike (jet ski).”  

The current Official Record is 3,602 kms, the current Unofficial Record is 17,267 kms. A majority of this trip will be not assisted by a ground crew and I will be relying on the generosity of many individuals at different ports of call to help with refuelling and other logistics.

This trip will commence on 1/3/20 from Exmouth in WA, travelling anti-clockwise across southern Australia, east coast and then the top end.  It is expected to be about 100 days of water time and allowing 4 to 5 months to complete.

If you would also like to sponsor the costs of fuel & services, or assist in anyway, please contact me on
