Beau Miles. Award winning filmmaker, poly-jobist, speaker, writer, odd.

On a recent crossing of Bass Strait in a sea kayak, Beau Miles was voted 5th worst dressed in a party of 5. Being offbeat and NQR speaks volumes about how Beau goes about life and represents himself to the world, believing wholeheartedly that we’re all weird. His offbeat stories of adventure exemplify a curious view of the human condition.

Beau’s adventures and quirky projects.

Run the Line

24 MINUTES
Overgrown, farmed, pushed out, sold off and only half there, Beau Miles aims to re-run the old Warragul-Noojee Railway line, which snaked for 42km through the foothills of Mt.Baw Baw, and ran from 1892-1954.

Junk Projects

2 EPISODES
I hate waste. This series is about making something out of nothing; canoe paddle from junk wood, new office from old office, and a resplendent chariot made from side-of-the road gems.

A Mile an Hour

17 MINUTES
A different kind of marathon; running one lap an hour for 24hrs around my perfectly mile long block. The rest of the time I do as much as possible; making things, odd jobs, fixing stuff. It's about running, doing, and thinking- the potentials of single day.

Bass by Kayak

6 EPISODES
A small expedition party crossing from the Australian mainland to Tasmania in sea kayaks. There is chafe, a storm, bad cooking and an emerging mate-ship between men that barely know each other.

First Maccas in 20 years: idiot.

Helen and I, a little excited, find ourselves free at a strange time of day. Based on my pestering we head to McDonald's at the non-mealtime of 2:45pm. Let me explain.  I’ve not purchased anything from the yellow hoops since 1998 due to the combined efforts of running and doing…

Famous people I got wrong

| Journal, Philosophy | No Comments
Eating a bunch of beans and running laps around my block has sparked a bit of interest lately, which is nice. A dozen or so radio spots, and a few TV gigs have meant I’ve shared filtered air with familiar people I’ve never met. I’ve often lumped famous people into…

Changing my religion with a 4000 year old paddle

| Modernisms, Sea Kayaking | One Comment
I tend to buy non-perishable things with the intent of using them until December, 2079. December 21st, 2079 actually, my 100th birthday, where I’ll eat a fat chunk of banana-liquorice cake with a Sheffield made fork, served on a plate I now own, sliced using a knife I’ll keep sharp,…

Commute loot!

| Beauisms | One Comment
Pop quiz. How many giant rolls of housing insulation can you fit into a two-door hatchback? One. Pretty crappy quiz I know, but a fun start to the day. I found this giant roll of goodness on the side of the highway. Smack bang in the middle of 6 lanes.…

Being Revenant

| Feature article, Philosophy, Trail Running, Travel | One Comment
Forty hours of transit bore lightbulbs into my night. When dawn arrives, the view from my kitchen bench reveals a red-stemmed maple sporting new buds. One particular branch touches a window pane, announcing spring- and itself, like a Jehovah witness knocking neatly and cautiously on the glass. I’ve been home…

What’s my Gripe?

| Philosophy | No Comments
I drink an average amount of coffee. Recently, my 1-2 a day has gone though the roof. Granted, I’ve been in, at, close-to, or anticipating an airport and the people-stuffed cavities of all things air-travel for 20 odd days. For it, I’ve slept in fits and prolonged coma’s and covered…
