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.

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.

Trials of Miles

52 MINUTES
Beau laces up for a different kind of world first, running 650+km of the Australian Alpine Walking Track. Traversing through some of the highest peaks in Australia, Beau battles injury, fatigue and ultimately himself in his personal Trial of Miles.

As good as great fish and a dam busting leak…

I remember eating something new a few years ago. Maybe a Russian dish, but probably not. My step mum cooked it, scratch that- created it for Christmas. New flavours rolled around in my head as a truly new experience. Overwhelming really. As if, when you finally wee after torturing yourself…

Q&A write up: Kayaking Australia’s Bass Strait

| Bass by Kayak, Q&A, Sea Kayaking | One Comment
Over two full weeks, we crossed from the Australian mainland to Tasmania in sea kayaks. Three hundred odd people have made the crossing in the modern era, and Aboriginal Australians did it during the last ice age in canoes. For the seafarer, linking together the perfectly spaced islands feels like…

My wife, glory parker

| Beauisms, Modernisms, Travel | 5 Comments
A glory park is the best car park in the parking lot. Out front, shaded, free, wide, rare as buggery. Expensive people tend to own glory parks, or pay someone to shoo others away. Poor people dream of glory parking, including my wife. Airport parking, in particular, is the preferred…

My love of orange things

| Beauisms, kids | No Comments
I’m writing a book so penning this blog is a strategic distraction. I’ve also become a dad 23.2 days ago (May, Baby May!!), so I’m doing this between farting and burping a newborn, which is more fun that I thought. An infant at arms-reach makes you think in football sized…

The hangover of Episode 6

| Film, Sea Kayaking | 3 Comments
I write for Trail Runner Magazine every so often as ‘Trail Muse’. I think my way around a particular piece of trail, narrating my world internally, and return to the laptop to write about it. We all do this in some way, regardless of the depth in narrative, or actuality…

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…
