As a professional consultancy xplor4 are proud to present select brief highlights of our work.


Adventure Sunshine Coast webportal activation

Sunshine Coast Council commissioned xplor4 / Mat Colefax in 2018 for the initial data collection phase to map and collate hundreds of kilometres of hike and bike trails, running, walking, wildlife watching, kayak/canoe even equestrian. Across all grades and abilities from families to endurance enthusiast the project set an ambitious goal to map the coasts extensive trail networks on land and water then build a comprehensive activity hub. To this end Mat also captured thousands of hi-res beautiful images with the DSLR and drone, and recorded quality writeups about the trails plus recommendations to help planning and development. All of this on time and on budget for a brilliant result. We applaud SC Council and are proud to have helped contribute to their impressive Adventure Sunshine Coast project, viewable by clicking the picture below.



Noosa Tewantin Trails Hub

Mat originally kickstarted the Noosa Tewantin Trailcare program through his self motivated and visionary approach to the Governing agencies at the time. Working closely with QPWS management in Brisbane as well as Rangers in Charge such as Nat Smith, councils Nigel Walker and the industry in the initial years Mat managed monthly community trailcare days. After much effort landmark land management agreements and MOU's were established. It also led to groundbreaking International Mountain Biking Association trail building workshops with Joey Klein. Although Mat long since passed that baton, the legacy continues to grow with Wooroi MTB trails taking top honours in the scene even to this day. In recent times Mat at xplor4 fielded requests to elevate a professional plan that further fulfills Tewantin NP trails potential to the next level. A core principle is to build out a sustainable business case based upon current community benefit aspects. As an advocacy and aspiring to improve facilities for everyone, xplor4 welcomes support and comment. Click on the image below to see a concise overview of one evolving aspect.




QLD ecotourism trails tender

As a leading initial consultant to tenderer CABN on the major new Cooloola commercialization proposal we were tasked with guiding, groundproofing fieldwork, GIS mapping, preliminary siting suggestions and proposal reasoning. Bringing our honed approach to trails user experience we also crafted stunning imagery both stills and video to tell a winning story in our preliminary report. Leveraging our top trails knowledge, local connections, sustainable approach, decades of experience and unique insight we were perfectly situated to help our client succeed in their tender.



Sunshine Coast Central Tourism Trails Report

The client has a grand vision and engaged us to begin a connective trails investigation process spanning the entire Sunshine Coast! The resulting extensive report includes many innovative insights including ebikes. Since then this report proves xplor4 consultancies foresight for being ahead of its time in many aspects including augmented activities such as ebikes. Screenshot below. Further excerpts of the report aligned with your relevant interest can be requested by email.




Kitesurf Code of Conduct

Mat's ability to manage potential problems and competing interests for best practice outcomes is proven by several successes such as the original Tewantin Trails initiative. Another great example is the kitesurf code of conduct Mat created for Noosa council. After Mat wrote the 1st international code, Noosa Council commissioned him for the 1st one in Australia. His code still stands proud at the Noosa River. So many years on it is a strong testament to the integrity and longevity of Mat's work within our xplor4 consultancy.
