Tour Guides of Nullarbor Traveller
The quality of a guide can make or break a tour experience and Nullarbor Traveller Tour Guides are some of the best in the business!
Your tour guide, your friend, your cook, your doctor… You name it, these legends do become quite an important part of your life for a week or two! Our talented and professional guides share our philosophy and passion for environmental sustainability. They also have extensive knowledge of native plants and animals, Indigenous culture and eco-tourism which will be shared with you. Our team have been working on some of the best eco-tours in Australia. They are there to help you have the best trip possible by giving you loads of information on the places you are travelling through, offering suggestions for things to do and see, organising the camp and cooking for the group (though passengers are required to pitch in!) and even pull out a guitar and sing songs around the campfire if you’re lucky! We are travelling to very remote destinations and our passengers’ safety is our number one priority. Our guides have a satellite phone and are all First Aid trained and certified.

Not only is it my job but it is also my passion. I'll show you the wonders of the Eyre Peninsula and south-west of Western Australia. And the amazing wildlife that is native to this part of Australia. Jump on board and I promise you the time of your life!

Life Motto: Get a good night's sleep! Seriously, if you get a good night’s sleep everything else falls into place, or it is in place already. Shame I rarely ever get a good night’s sleep!

Years of guiding: Lots and lots.
Favourite Nullarbor Traveller Tour: Has to be the 10-Day Adelaide to Perth. Such diversity from day to day, great passengers and two nights at Cape Le Grand National Park. What’s not to love.
The best thing about being a tour guide is: For me guiding is a lifestyle choice. It’s a great combination of work and play to down time if needed or wanted. I see myself as a modern-day vagabond and I could not think of another way to live. Plus, I love meeting new people and taking them camping in the Australian bush, something I grew up not just doing but living.
If I wasn’t so damn great at my job I’d be: If I wasn’t guiding, I think I’d go back to working with the environment in some way.
If I’m not working, I am the happiest while: I’m either travelling, kayaking or cuddling.
Life Motto: I have a few, a couple that are well used I know – but YOLO. And sing as though no one is listening, dance as though no one is watching, and love as though you have never loved before. And be honest and transparent in dealings with others.
Favourite campfire story or song: For me sitting around a campfire is a time to reflect. As a guide I often find myself being asked questions about my past so it’s a great time to share one of those stories whether that’s from my childhood growing up in the bush or one of the many stories I have from years of guiding.
