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 Council and are proud to have helped contribute to their impressive 'Adventure Sunshine Coast' project, viewable by clicking the picture below.



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.

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.

And working closely with QPWS in the initial years to manage monthly trailcare days, plus groundbreaking International Mountain Biking Association trail building workshops. Who better than Mat / xplor4 consultancy 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.

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. The first of its kind in Australia, the code stands proud today at the Noosa River so many years on. It is a strong testament to the integrity and longevity of Mat's work within his xplor4 consultancy.
