Our Team

Our award-winning walking holiday designers work in concert with our local suppliers to create one-of-a-kind experiences for our walkers and this is what delivers the Stroll difference. All of our people have the training and experience to ensure you that you get the most out of the time and energy spent on your walking holiday. What’s more return safely with a greater understanding and appreciation for the area. In addition, our destination consultants in the office love what they do and are passionate about creating memorable walks to share with everyone.


Katie brings with her years of experience guiding for many different outfits. Her fun and bubbly personality means there’s never a dull moment for walkers. She has a passion for nature and won’t hesitate to share her vast knowledge, particularly its flora and fauna.


Bill’s outdoor knowledge is second to none, having spent 30 years running outdoor education programs. There's nothing Bill can't tell you about walking drawing from his own unique experiences – something you won't find in the guidebooks.


Affectionately known as “Dr Merel”, her understanding of nature is informed by a background in biology, evolution and ecology. Merel has guided trips all over the country and to locations as far flung as Antarctica, the Hebrides and the Caribbean. Yet her speciality remains Australia, exploring the few parts we don't yet go to, developing new trips for us.


Dan turned his passion for the outdoors into his dream career, with qualifications in geography, arboriculture and habitat conservation. His years hiking in Alaska, Spain, NZ, and Australia would make even the most avid walker envious. An extensive knowledge of the environment and nature makes walking with Dan an immersive experience.

“The walk notes were excellent and comprehensive, and the walk route amazing. You could tell they had walked the tracks more then a few times. All the accommodations were welcoming and very comfortable. Our driver was very knowledgeble and managed our small group with ease, considering the challenges of catering to different walking abilities and ensured that everyone had the best possible experience”.
Andrea Mackie – Camino Lux

He’s also lived and worked overseas in Africa, India and Europe. Before starting Auswalk, Brett spent time working with kids and driving tourists around Australia. It’s no surprise he’s most passionate about walking alongside fantastic people in this beautiful country he calls home.
