On 26 April 2010, after completing an epic 55-day, 780-km journey from Ward Hut Island, the most northern tip of Canada, to the North Pole, Linda became the first Australian woman to trek to the pole and the first female to reach both poles on foot.

Linda, from Bendigo in country Victoria, completed the trip with husband Rob Rigato and Canadian alpine guide Sarah McNair-Landry. (Source: Australian Geographic).
