Meet our Google Trekker: Josh “The Bear’ Kerr

On social media, he calls himself “The Bear Master”.

At 24 and standing a neat 2m tall, Joshua Kerr will for 60 days wear the Google Trekker device. While wearing the device fitted with 15 cameras on his back he will tour the city’s scenic gems on foot.


Josh is no stranger to the outdoors. He works as an activities guide for Spicers Peak Lodge and he grew up in the Ipswich region.

The former Amberley District State School and West Moreton Anglican College student has developed a keen interest in hiking in recent years. He enjoys both the fitness and photography elements – as well as the views from the top!
