favourite walk

Iconic Ascent

co-owner, lover of rocks, and actual mountain goat

I’ve lived on the foot hills of kunanyi / Mt Wellington all my life. It is an absolute honour for me to be able to share the stories that I’ve learnt. I know from my own travels, including walking in Nepal, that visiting the places where the natural and cultural intrigues reside makes the stories spring to life.

I continue to ‘play’ on the mountain whenever I can, be it running, climbing, riding or walking, and I’m still discovering new wonders. I’ve got a background in geology, teaching, business sustainability and managed the drinking water catchments on kunanyi / Mt Wellington for 8 years. Needless to say, I can rabbit on about these topics for yonks.

But my main job is raring two kiddies in the idyllic foothills of South Hobart trying to impart my love of the Tasmanian wilderness to the next generation. I hope I can do that for all our guests. But never fear, I won’t talk too much, because sometimes the best wanderlust quenching moments come from soaking up the surrounds in silence.

We're closed for the moment.

Wellington Park, home of kunanyi, has closed for walkers because of COVID-19. We'll be back as soon as it's safe for us to operate. In the meantime have a read of our blog or look at the walks we'll be offering as soon as we are operational again.
