Her insatiable appetite for travel saw her set foot in all 7 continents by the time she was 23 and she enjoys paragliding, surfing, boxing, canyoning, mountain biking, cave-diving, skiing and attempts at adventure racing.
Her weirdest and most wonderful globe-trotting memories include ice-climbing at Mount Everest, cave diving beneath the rural farmlands of South Australia, joining a successful paragliding world record attempt in Bali, heli-MTBing the Southern Alps, wearing the blood, sweat and tears of the Kokoda trail and being trackside as the Ambassador of the FormulaOne.

Beyond her television work, Caroline works as a strategic marketing consultant with Destination Marketing Organisations and Tourism boards around the world to create compelling travel documentaries, marketing content & productions.
She was the face of Tourism in Timor Leste (East Timor) and still fronts much of their marketing. Her role was not only in production but extended strategically, to bring about positive change in the perspective of Australian travellers. Her aim was to help change attitudes and show that East Timor is no longer a war torn country but a safe paradise open for eco and adventure tourism. This project involved an indepth public relations role alongside the creation of light hearted, short-form destination marketing films.
She’s the youngest sister of accomplished adventure photographer Max Pemberton (www.digitaladventures.com.au) and renowned mountaineer Rex Pemberton who held the record as the Youngest Australian to summit Mount Everest for a decade and is still one of the youngest people in the world to achieve the holy grail of alpine climbing, the 7 summits.
