Excluding our amazing walks - what is your favourite walk worldwide?
I feel like every time I do a multi day walk, it becomes my new favourite! I’ve done some amazing walks in Tassie besides the Overland Track that included Frenchman’s Cap, Mt Anne and Cathedral Mountain.

Recommended travel destination and why?
Walking in the Australian Alps National Park. This park encloses a number of truly amazing mountainous wilderness areas that are worth exploring.
What do you enjoy most about guiding for TWC?
The place, the people and the stories; and how it’s all tied together with a sense of wild adventure. It is not merely a job; it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle which comes with a healthy and practical philosophy; we look after Nature, and we look after people, for they are both dependant on the other.
What is your favourite place along the Overland Track?
The old growth rainforest we get to walk through on day 5. As the track roughly follows the Mersey River, we get to walk in dim light under the tightly woven canopy of the beech myrtles, which, combined with a sweet moisture in the air creates ideal conditions for a number of ancient species to grow in abundance. The trunks and branches of the trees are covered in bright green moss that creates a pre historic atmosphere, and with it a deep sense of wilderness and solace. There is a deep sense of calm that overtakes you on this section of the track, where your thoughts slow down as your awareness comprehends the vibrancy and uniqueness of the forest.
Where do you hail from?
I was born in Budapest, Hungary.
Your favourite dinner dish ever!?!
A Hungarian sweet main course called ‘szilvasgomboc’. They are plum dumplings which are boiled then rolled in sweet fried bread crumbs. Sour cream optional as garnish.
