Andrew has been guiding with Park Trek for a number of years and you can be assured of his deep knowledge across a wide range of interests including bird watching, geology, botany, climate and history. His in-depth knowledge has been gained by his time as an engineer, teacher and traveller in Australia and around the world. Andrew really enjoys preparing delicious meals for his guests using fresh produce. His relaxed manner, professional approach and ability to talk about any topic will ensure you will extract the maximum possible value out of any trip you take under his capable leadership.
Ann is a passionate guide, loves working in the great outdoors and enjoys talking about the beauty and wonder of the natural world.As a Park Trek guide, Ann’s goal is to provide opportunities for guests to unwind, relax and develop connections with the natural world and come away feeling refreshed and invigorated by their experiences. She thinks the natural environment provides people with an escape from their busy and often stressful working lives, by reconnecting with the slow pace of nature it allows people to step back and re-evaluate their priorities. Ann holds a Bachelor of Science specialising in plant ecology and a graduate diploma in outdoor education. She hosts mostly Great Ocean Walk, Grampians, Wilsons Prom and Alpine walks.
After more than 25 years in education, Angie took a career change as a hiking guide. A keen walker and cyclist, she has explored the great outdoors extensively, both in Australia and overseas. One of the biggest challenges Angie faces when travelling is deciding what adventure to pursue next as she likes to keep herself busy. Angie is keen to share her passion for the outdoors, her no fuss and relaxed attitude ensures guests have a great time on her walks. She has a genuine interest in her guests and thrives on the opportunity to make ‘maybes’ become ‘realities’. Rest assured Angie will provide friendly, efficient and accommodating guiding for your next outdoor adventure!
Allistair has been with the Park Trek team for a number of years now and has travelled the length and breadth of Australia delivering tours to happy guests. Al is one of the youngest members of the team, but fits in perfectly on tour with our guests and guides alike. Everyone loves Al and his affable personality. His love of history, amazing organisational and logistics skills and calm, caring nature make him a great addition to the Park Trek team and ensure all of the tours he works on gain rave reviews. When he is not hitting the trails with Park Trek he enjoys gaming in his down time. You’re likely to see Al on one of our many tours around the country whether it be in the Northern Territory, Tasmania, NSW or Victoria.
Nick has spent the past decade gallivanting about the globe – seeking out good times & adventure. Trekking endeavours have taken him across the South American Andes, New Zealand, Morocco & South East Asia – but as another mad keen Tasmanian local, he says it is his island home which still gives him the most inspiration. Nick has also worked as a walking guide on both the Overland Track & the Larapinta Trail, and occasionally works as an outdoor education instructor. His favourite places to hang out include “The Organ Pipes” on Mt Wellington, Mt Arapiles & of course – the South-West Tasmanian wilderness.
Despite being from South-East Queensland Katri has quickly made Tasmania her adopted home. You would be hard to find someone else with the same passion in teaching guests about the various flora and fauna the island has to offer. Katri has always been one for adventure, spending a year in British Columbia working on ranches and exploring the wilderness of Patagonia. She is a keen photographer, having captured some of Australia’s pristine landscapes and when not guiding you’ll find her behind the lens of some of Tasmania’s many landmarks.
