Your Walking Tour Guides

Our Cradle Mountain Huts Walk guides 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 Overland Track and the wonders of the World Heritage Area.

In the words of one traveller "...their love of the wilderness was obvious in the gentle way they encouraged us to care for it as much as they did themselves. Their leadership was superb - the trip would always have been memorable, with the extra input by the guides it became fantastic."

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)
