Mathew Townsend


Hello, My name is  MATHEW TOWNSEND. 

I have a profound to severe hearing loss when I was 18 months old. 

I was also diagnosed with Autism at age of 12.  

Despite all these, it did not stop me from achieving what I want.

I am  an advocate,  founder, social entrepreneur, adventurer, public speaker, environmentalist. Mentor and consultant

I travelled around the world to create awareness about introducing my goals for the people with disabilities, mental health vulnerable young people.

Being a traveller made me love outdoor activities that led me to start a new crusade for the world we live in.  Bushwalking is one of the activities that amazes me profoundly.  Being free for the nature.  Nature freedom is one of my biggest and successful expedition.  I was a nominated and finalist for “7 News Young Achievers Queensland Awards”

“Focus on your passions to pursue your ambitions”

Change should start within us, ourselves, 

Communication is the key to proper connection to coordinate, collaborate, inclusion.

I am passionate about creating a place for everybody from all walks of life experiencing social inclusion and accessibility.

I was multi awarded, nominated for my dedication in environmental and outdoor projects.

I may have had a share of challenges and struggles along the way, positivity and education motivated me to excel.

Let us help one another to make a change for our earth, a worthy place to live in and be safe for our families and future generations.
