Through working as a horse trekking guide I have also learnt some of the local history, land marks and heaps about the native plants and bush which I love learning about and sharing with others. Living and working on the farm has giving me the confidence to work with not only animals of all kinds but machinery as well; including – motorbikes (two-wheeled and four), tractors and trucks.

Caving Guide Duration: March 2009 – April 2012 Company: The Legendary Black water Rafting Co. An amazing job to have!! Caves are a beautiful place to be able to share with such a variety of different people of different ages, nationalities and experience.

Group Management, working alongside another guide, local and cave history, environment and wildlife knowledge, rope skills and knowledge are all part of the job that I enjoy being a continuous progression with this amazing job. This job has also allowed me to develop my own personal technical skills that I have been enjoying using outside of work in a variety of different caves.
