Paul Aubin - Bog Out

Paul Aubin lives an outdoors, adventurous life; four-wheel driving, camping, sailing and fishing. Passionate and enthusiastic, Paul helps others achieve his lifestyle through his business and voluntary work.

Paul’s community spirit and leadership have resulted in political, bureaucratic, environmental, science and industry sectors inviting him as a strong and constructive volunteer voice on recreational and environmental issues in Queensland and further.

The founder of CAREFISH (Cairns REcreational Fishing Industry Stakeholders), Paul has voluntarily assisted on the Fisheries Minister’s “Working Committee $9m Net Buy Back” since invitation in 2012.

Paul’s light bulb moment sparked when his Troopy was heavily bogged in an isolated area near Cape York. Paul’s mechanical knowledge and experience as a solo yachtsman greatly assisted him research, test and develop his idea.

A creative thinker, Paul always finds a solution to a problem and can usually fix things himself. For example, the “jeep-look-alike” exhibition demonstrator doubles as a box trailer transporting sales stock and display material.

A qualified Electrical Contractor, Paul has developed recreational tourism businesses in Cairns (Rent a Reef Boat and Cairns Bed n Boat) and has experience in Project Management, Business Start Up, Strategic Planning, Business Management and Design.
