Tasmanian Trail

In 2014 I walked 480km from Devonport at the top of Tasmania to Dover at the bottom of Tasmania, from Devonport to Dover.

It was an experience of a lifetime!

About Me

In 2003 I was living in Newcastle halfway through my Fine Arts Degree and won the second prize of $1,000 for my entry in the Gosford Art Prize.

My mother had travelled all around Australia in a Toyota Coaster during the 1990s, however, she never made the trip across the Bass Straight to Tasmania. So I decided to use my prize money to hire a car and do a ten-day tour around Tasmania with my mum over the Christmas New Year period of 2003-2004.

I was so struck by the beauty and the cooler weather that I went home deciding that I wanted to move to this beautiful Island. By the middle of April 2004, yes only four and a half months later, everything was packed into a shipping container ready for the big move.  From day one I have loved living in Tasmania.

Discovery Road

I have a dream to get off the beaten path and travel to rural and remote places around Australia. So there are big changes ahead for me as am preparing to move back to the big Island, Australia for some new adventures.

It is not long now until I hit the road. I hope to meet you out there.


My interest in taking photos is what inspired me to start a Diploma of Fine Arts back in 2001. This lead me into a Degree of Fine Arts which I completed through UTAS in 2007.

Up until this point I have not owned an SLR camera and have chosen to take my photos with my iPhone. Despite the limitations of this choice, I love the fact that I can carry my camera in my pocket everywhere I go.

Being Australian

I am privileged to be able to live in Australia and want to acknowledge and pay respect to the Aboriginal people as the traditional and original owners, and continuing custodians of this land and acknowledge Elders – past and present.

Their story is the foundation of all Australian stories.

Exploring Tasmania

At the completion of my Fine Arts Degree in 2007, I decided to reward myself by doing a 10 day trip in my camper van. This time I focused on the North East of the island. This was the beginning of many more trips around Tasmania. 

At the end of 2013, I found myself out of work, so I decided to see Tasmania at a slower pace. In March 2014 I walked the Tasmanian Trail from Devonport to Dover. You can read about my experience if you want to know how I went. I have to say this was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

Driving down roads I have not driven before has become my passion. I have a map of Tasmania with all the roads I have travelled highlighted in pink, but I still have more roads to discover.

I now have a new map of Australia to mark off the roads I travel when I move back to the mainland.
