A chance opportunity to escape suburban Adelaide in the mid-sixties saw Craig Wickham raised in the solitude of Kangaroo Islands’ north coast. Subsequent foresight saw a family tourism business established in the mid seventies. The eighties saw Craig live in South Africa, pursue wildlife management qualifications and then employed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service. The nineties saw a return to private enterprise with a fledgling nature-based tourism business.
