Hi! I am Australian born and bred and have lived in Melbourne most of my life. I have traveled extensively throughout Australia as a younger man and more recently with children.
Australia has such a vast range of experiences to offer, is a very safe destination and is easy to get around (aside from the vast distances!).
My advice would be don't try to do it all in one trip! Focus on a region and explore it well!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I have worked extensively within the wine regions of Victoria and NSW, hiked and cycled some of Australia's best trails and explored the East and West coasts of Australia. I can help you plan your next experience anywhere in Australia!"

How did you get involved in travel?

"Eleven years ago, after cycling across Vietnam on a guided trip with Intrepid travel, I fell in love with the travel industry. I quit my office job and started working for Intrepid Challenges in a sales role before joining the team in guiding trips around Australia. From there I have guided many different tours around the country and eventually helped to design a range of unique tours with the Get Lost Travel Group."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My most memorable travel experience is scuba diving with my son on the Great Barrier Reef but my favorite Aussie experience would be hiking the Great Ocean Walk- it is one of Australia's most diverse and stunning treks!"
