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.

A spectacular loop walk starting at the Springs, half way up the mountain. Walk through eucalyptus forest, past boulder fields and find yourself at an abandoned ice house ruin. Continue uphill and cross an alpine boulder field before arriving at the pinnacle. Enjoy a well deserved break before descending down the spectacular Zig Zag track alongside the amazing dolerite cliffs of the Organ Pipes. This walk has it all – forest, history, views and awesome geology!
