My interests are; History, Culture, Nature, Food and Family. I am 55 years old and have lived a life that has taught me many lessons and I continue to learn and I am still very much enjoying my journey.
My direct descendants were convicts and my family roots and connections date back to the start of British settlement. I grew up in a small rural town where as a boy I spent much of my spare time walking and playing in the hills, valleys and creeks that surrounded my home. Nature and watching many of Australia's unique animals were available to me in the vast open spaces that few countries have. I left my home at 18 years and joined the Australian Army where I spent the better part of my adult life.
I enjoy being a tour guide. I Love my country, our culture and way of life and it would be an honour to show you and tell you all about Townsville and Australia, this place that is my home.
I look forward to meeting you!!
A Recent Review of this guide
We had an excellent day with Toby. He met us on time in his large and comfortable van, and had our entire itinerary mapped out for us. We had a great time at Billabong Sanctuary and then had a wonderful tour of this historic city. Toby played a CD of the city history that he made, on our drive up to Castle Hill. He also has pamphlets about all his tours for you to peruse. He was very professional and knowledgeable. Thanks for a fun day!
