Imogen

Lead Guide, Tasmanian Walking Company  

"It's really special to get to be the person who gets to share these amazing places and share my connection to these amazing places with the people that come on our trips" 

This season will be Imogen's fifth year as a wilderness guide and she still couldn't think of a better job! Working on the Bay of Fires, Imogen loves teaching guests about the flora and fauna of the area, getting to know new people and convincing everyone to end the day with a swim in the crystal clear waters on Tasmania's East Coast.

Kieran

Lead Guide, Tasmanian Walking Company 

With a degree in Ecology and a deep understanding of first-nations history, Kieran has found his passions combined as a wilderness guide. Originally from Western Australia, Kieran now guides with us on the Three Capes Track and Overland Track. He feels very lucky to have formed such great insights into the history and science that lay beneath the surface and holds a great responsibility in sharing these insights with others. If you have walked with Kieran before you will know why he is often referred to as a walking encyclopedia!

Harry

Lead Guide, Tasmanian Walking Company  

"Getting to be there with people who have never seen it before, every time I go out is really really special"

Getting into guiding was a no-brainer for Harry, as he was already spending all of his time outdoors walking, mountain biking and snowboarding, so he thought he would make a career showing people his favourite places. Harry's favourite part about guiding is the connections he makes with people from all walks of life, seeing them open up into the place they are in and teaching them about the wildlife and history of the area they are in.  This season, you will find Harry and his infectious energy guiding on the Overland Track and on the Bay of Fires.

Sam

Field Experience Manager & Lead Guide, Tasmanian Walking Company 

"The simplicity of your life is wake up and walk...let's go"

Sam has been guiding with us on the Overland Track for over six years. His passion for the Tasmanian wilderness started when his dad took him on the Overland Track when he was five years old. After that Sam and his dad kept on walking, setting the foundations for his dream career of guiding people into the wilderness and sharing his love of Gondwanan plant kingdoms. Sam has recently made the transition to Field Experience Manager on the Overland Track, so this season you will find him passing on his wealth of knowledge to new guides on the Overland Track.
