Our team

Your trusted experts in navigating the Blue Mountains safely

Our team of outdoor professionals are highly qualified, experienced, fun, friendly and most importantly, very safety conscious. We attract, and retain, the best in the industry.

Our aim is to provide you with people who are passionate about the activities they guide as well as the wild, pristine places that they'll help you to explore in the Blue Mountains. When they aren't guiding in the Blue Mountains they can be found hiking, canyoning and climbing both locally and worldwide. Whilst your personal safety is always uppermost in our guides’ minds they also take the time to ensure you have a memorable experience by sharing their knowledge of the natural environment and local history.

We are very proud of the quality of our staff and the feedback from our guests confirm that they truly are the best in our business. We also think they are a pretty good looking bunch!
