About

In the early 80's, one week after finishing school, I hitchhiked solo around Australia for 14 months. I ended up on the receiving end of generosity from other Australians and built lifelong friendships with Aussies and fellow travelers from abroad.

This period of my life was both humbling and transformative. I was exposed different opportunities, the wonders of traveling and meeting people from different cultures.

Now, I've changed seats. I'm no longer the lone, grateful, hitchhiking passenger but a private driver/guide, with the opportunity to share the wonders of Australia's natural environment with others.

Maybe it's a revolution of the “hitchhikers karmic circle”?

As a tour guide I now have the opportunity to pay back my "karmic debt" with the same friendship and generosity I received many years ago from fellow travelers and guides.

If you're coming to Australia and would like to experience the best of Australian nature and wildlife within a day, then I'm the guide for you.

I’d love to show you another side of Sydney.
