I live between the Mountains and the sea in Goulburn NSW. I love the Ocean having been brought up in Austinmer NSW. I fell in love with the Snowy Mountains as a kid and started to do many bushwalks adopting the Geehi Clubs Bushwalking in the Snowy Mountains book as the bible and completed the many walks. Over the next 30 years I have walked, biked, kayaked and skied all over the Snowy Mountains and worked for several commercial groups as guide during that time. I also find the time to walk my dog Banjo and enjoy the quite times with a glass of red wine watching si –fi movies or some fine dining in and around some of the Snowies best. Love to help you experience the adventures of the Snowy Mountains
