Christchurch, New Zealand

What do I love? Showing visitors around our beautiful country.

What do I like more? Sharing my region and farm with visitors from all walks of life and giving them an authentic experience on the farm.

About Me.

I grew up on a sheep and beef farm in the small town of Hurunui, about 1hour 15minutes from the centre of Christchurch.
The farm has been in my family since the 1860s and now we produce super fine Merino wool and premium quality Angus cattle.

In my spare time I like to make the most of the great local scenery & love capturing this on camera. I'm also a certified rafting guide (just for fun) and enjoy rafting around New Zealand but the Hurunui River holds a special place in my heart. Also, can't forget so many of the awesome bike trails in the region which can keep me entertained for hours.

I have been tour guiding since 2011, driver guiding passengers from 16-80 years young. Guiding private tours & tours of up to 50 people. So I have plenty of experience with both driving and local knowledge. I also spent a couple of years presenting a farming show called "Rural New Zealand" so feel a strong connection to the local rural community and all it has to offer.

I like my passengers to have a very relaxed and organic experience when touring. There's so much diversity and beauty in the Hurunui and I look forward to sharing this region with you.
