3x WORLD RECORD
As Seen On
Nicknamed ‘UNSTOPPABULL’ by his sisters, world record-breaking adventurer and international motivational speaker, Daniel Bull, has an unrelenting desire to push limits and test the boundaries of what is possible. Facing his fears head on, he’s overcome intense challenges to thrive in the thin air and extreme cold of high altitude, as he demonstrates first hand how anyone can make the seemingly impossible possible.
Growing up, Daniel had his fair share of challenges. Overly cautious as a little kid, it didn’t help that he battled chronic asthma and was occasionally hospitalised due to the severity of his asthma attacks.
He was also diagnosed with Raynaud’s Phenomenon in his hands and feet, which meant limited circulation to his fingers and toes. He didn’t discover until later, this would skyrocket the risk of frostbite in the cold, especially, at high altitude.

QUESTIONING THE COMFORT ZONE
Despite his lack of naturally gifted physical traits and innate aversion to risk, Daniel’s parents, Martin and Jillian, led by example and encouraged him to take manageable risks and move beyond where he felt comfortable. His two sisters, Katie and Bridie, both fearless in his eyes, also paved the way for Daniel to develop his own courage. This would be tested when, together with his young sisters, he would be shipped off by his parents to the Tasmanian wilderness with only basic supplies. This trip of survival would turn out to be the trip of a lifetime and teach him that he wasn’t limited by his asthma, his flat feet, or his Raynaud’s. In fact, Daniel realised that his limitations could actually be overcome. This is when the seed for a life of adventure was planted.

A COURAGEOUS FIRST STEP
Leaning into the unknown and harnessing his imagination, Daniel dared to dream high and set his sights on the highest point on the planet, dreaming of making a journey from sea level all the way to the summit of Mount Everest, standing at almost 9,000 metres or 30,000 feet tall.
In preparation, immediately after completing his studies, Daniel took out his first bank loan, bought a plane ticket to Kathmandu, Nepal and headed into the Himalayas – home to some of Earth’s highest peaks – including Mount Ama Dablam. With its soaring ridge lines and steep faces, it was once labelled “unclimbable” by Sir Edmund Hillary.
Daniel overcame the seemingly impossible obstacles to get to the top, but on the way down faced his first near-death experience. Surviving a massive free fall down a vertical ice cliff during a rappel, he was fully aware that he had escaped death, yet felt more alive than ever. Daniel was now more determined than ever to chase his dream and go even higher.

A LIFE OF ADVENTURE
Achieving his dream of standing on top of the world, Daniel decided not to make climbing Everest the greatest thing he would ever do. And indeed, he hasn’t stopped there. He’s made numerous first ascents up unclimbed peaks in uncharted locations such as northern Greenland, and became the youngest person on the planet to climb the highest mountain and the highest volcano on every continent. In his quest to inspire a generation of dreamers, Daniel went on to break the world record for the highest kayak and the highest swim on Earth in collaboration with NASA and Google Earth.

Believing that no ambition is too high, Daniel relentlessly chases his passion for heights. He offers his unique perspectives on how each of us can challenge ourselves, embrace risk and unleash untapped potential. Daniel believes that with courage, preparation and determination, ANYONE can dream big, defy limits and be unstoppable.
Regardless of our abilities and life experiences, we all have barriers in our lives; obstacles are all around us. They want to knock us flat on our backs and keep us from being our best. But inside all of us is the power and ability to push through seemingly insurmountable odds.
Suffering from a disease that’s triggered by thin air and cold temperatures, Daniel has every reason to stay at sea level. Instead he’s spent 7,000 days climbing the highest mountains on Earth. He believes you too can push fear aside, unleash a new reality, and live the life you want to live, whether you climb mountains or not.
