Suzanne Noakes

Expedition Leader

Suzanne Noakes

From her home in Australia, Suzanne has traveled the globe for more than 20 years. In those two decades she has developed a particularly deep understanding of the people, cultures, flora, and fauna of Papua New Guinea and the Melanesian and Micronesian nations. She has led trips into Melanesia and Micronesia for university alumni and conservation associations, and is the director of a company active in developing tourism destinations throughout the Asian Pacific region, including ecolodge operations to protect wildlife in Indonesia. She often takes her three kids on family expeditions to explore places such as northern Thailand, hike in the Mt. Cook National Park in New Zealand, cycle in southern Vietnam, discover Angkor Wat, stay with locals in Fiji, or experience interesting new foods in China. Suzanne’s expertise, energy, and rapport with local people make her a memorable leader.
