Your Walking Guides & Skipper

Our Wineglass Bay Sail Walk guides and skipper are often thought of as our most outstanding asset.  They are passionate, educated, great interpreters and cooks all rolled into one.  Feedback regarding our guides is invariably positive.  The guides will enhance the journey with their knowledge and understanding of the flora, fauna, geology and history of the local area

In the words of one traveller "Our guides were exceptional - not only in their professionalism - but also in their ability to pass on their obvious passion and enthusiasm for their job and the area itself."

Favourite Saying / Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward and w​hile some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do…” - Jack Kerouac (Paraphrased ​by Steve Jobs for Apple)

Recommended travel destination and why?

India. It's a full-on assault on the senses, with fantastic people. It's got everything I like - full-on cities, epic mountains, great food, chai, and fantastic people with a whacky sense of humour.

What do you enjoy most about guiding for TWC?

Working with awesome people in some of the most spectacular places in Tasmania, and being able to spoil people whilst in a remote area is a highlight of my job. Being able to whip out a batch of scones in the World Heritage Area is always pretty enjoyable.

What do you enjoy most about guiding for TWC?

I love the freedom that this work provides me to escape the insulated world created around us and the opportunity it gives me to ponder, to share, to learn and to be.

What is your favourite place along the Overland Track and or Bay of Fires?

Bof - South Abbotsbury beach at 4pm with a nice swell whipping mist into the air as the low light plays off the dunes. CMH: Day 5 morning catching up with group: Myrtle forest after Du Cane hut, with warm shafts of light piercing the canopy and bathing patches of ground the size of a coffee table.
