One of my earliest childhood memories is my parents showing visitors from overseas around our sheep farm near Dunedin, I guess with this background the great outdoors and international visitors have always been part of my life.  I've worked for some great adventure tourism companies here in New Zealand over the years and now with a family of my own, my wife Ceri (chief organiser), Archie 8 (chief cookie tester) and Harris 6 (chief truck washer) form the backbone of Ridgeline Adventures a company I formed in 2008.

I am also a professional photographer and have been published in many magazines, guide books, calandars.  Many of my images can be seen online at  Phototours are also a developing side of the business so please contact me if you are interested in these.

We appreciate how very, very lucky we are to call New Zealand home and consider ourselves fortunate to be able to share some of Wanaka's hidden scenic and historical secrets to visitors from all over the world.

Not a day goes by where we don't stop and appreciate the simple pleasures of living in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

I hope you can someday come join us on a safari here in Wanaka, we would love to show you around!
