A true advocate for adventure and living every day

With an upbeat and can-do attitude, Liz Cantor is a fantastic MC and Facilitator.

‚ÄčLiz Cantor first made waves in Australia as a professional surfer who competed on the Australian Junior Circuit for five years. Sponsored by Billabong, her surfing career took her to Fiji, Tahiti, the Maldives, Hawaii and Europe to compete. She was also the first female Surf Judge to travel internationally on the World Surf League. She maintains her love of surfing today; even catching waves during her recent pregnancies.

Liz completed her Journalism degree in 2003. She considered studying Marine Biology, but her love of sharing stories and information pulled her towards a career in media. She combined her Bachelor of Communications degree with a Meteorology Course, through the Australian Bureau

She made her on-screen debut in the 2002 Australian feature film Blurred, which followed five groups of teenagers as they hit the road for Schoolies Week. A year later she appeared in the 2003 film Gettin Square before landing a role on television drama series Blue Water High as ‘Corin Hardy’ in 2005. Later that year she scored a spot on the Channel 7 reality television show The Mole, a show which kick-started her career with Channel 7. She competed against 12 other contestants and won, leaving the show with $200,000 in prize money.

In 2005 Channel 7 hired Cantor as a presenter on Queensland's water based outdoor adventure lifestyle program Creek to Coast and shortly after this The Great South East, a travel program focusing on tourist attractions in Queensland. Also, that year Cantor made her debut as a weather presenter for Channel 7 News, and in 2008 she became the presenter for the national live Gold Lotto draws. Cantor still fills each of these roles today, with over 15 years experience in live television, and seen weekly on Saturday afternoons 5:30pm on Creek to Coast and Sunday 5:30pm on newly renamed Weekender

In 2016 she gained the title 2 x Reality TV Show winner! After appearing and winning ultra HD network INSIGHT TV’s first ever adventure reality show Living Stone – Botswana. The show was screened internationally and saw Liz and husband Ryan represent Australia, surviving starvation and the wilderness of Africa, against other couples from England, New Zealand, America, South Africa and The Middle East.

Liz was an ambassador for Suzuki Cars and stars in their “Way of Life” TVC’s and campaigns. She’s also a spokesperson and ambassador for the Michael J Fox Foundation ‘Shake it Up’ raising funds and awareness for Parkinson’s Disease. As a passionate horse lover and part owner of two racehorses, Liz sits on the board of Transitioning Thoroughbreds Foundation. She is also the face of Surf Life Saving Queensland 2021.
