G’Day, my name is Rachael. As a kid, I grew up northwest of Sydney in a family that has a taste for adventure and a love of the outdoors. From childhood stemmed my passion, setting off on exchanges internationally to learn about diversity in environments globally. I have volunteered in foreign countries to educate communities, help build sustainable and clean living quarters for the less fortunate. I have also lead outdoor hiking, rapid crossing, canoeing, adventure program for a children’s camp in Canada. Heading into the Alpine of Australia is such a unique experience. Over the past years I’ve been here I can tell you that no two hikes are ever the same. I love being able to share my backyard with guests hoping they’ll leave with strong knowledge to share with others, and a newfound passion for the beautiful place it is. See you out there!
My name is Alexis Sirman, originally from Ottawa, Canada, I spent most of my life in British Colombia playing and working in the mountains. I have been working as a guide since my early 20’s. I have worked guiding white water rafting and kayaking, snowmobiling, quad biking, dog sledding, cat skiing and a few other cameos for caving and canyoning along the way. I love the outdoors and one of my passions is getting people excited about them and the experiences that Mother Nature offers. I moved to Australia in 2013 and have been living and working in the area since. I run the Guided Hikes program for my summer job and work on the Ski Patrol in the winter. Life is pretty good.
My name is Rochell, I grew up in Mollymook NSW. My youth was full of adventure, exploring beaches and bushland along the coast, this was just the beginning, in my 20’s I set out to see the sights of the world crossing many places off my bucket list. During this period I spent 3 years living and working in the Rocky Mountains and my passion for hiking flourished. Once returning to Australia I was living on the coast and felt there was something missing, this is when I made the move to the Snowy Mountains. I love sharing the experience and remarkable view of hiking in the Alpine with our guests.
