What do you get up to when you're not working on the track?
I’m a relentless traveller and love being outside, so I am usually off exploring somewhere in the world.
What's your favourite memory from working for TWC?
Again, narrowing it down to one is extremely difficult, but I would generally say all the trips I’ve guided to the spires of Mount Oakleigh. The views north west and the Forth Valley are simply divine, and the journey is an epic ramble through a huge cross section of stunning Tasmanian scenery - from muddy buttongrass plains to an alpine plateau.
What's your favourite part of the track?
I love it all, so it’s very hard to say, but probably the mature yellow gum and stringy bark forest after Du Cane gap. The trees are extremely long lived and the rainforest understory is rich, green and lush. On the right day, after rain, the afternoon light filters through the trees and illuminates the yellow gum trunks creating an astonishing surreal bush experience. The entire park is riddled with magic.
What's your top TWC Track fashion tip?
’m not into fashion, though I’ll say I am the only guide that wears an akubra hat, oddly.
What/where is your favourite place in Tasmania? (Favourite pub/cafe?)
St Helen’s and around the east coast. Beaches, bush coastline, fresh oysters and it has a great second hand bookstore and café. It’s slow and the people are great.
Where are you from?
My family migrated to Australia from Italy after world war II, I grew up in Sydney, I now live in Tasmania.
