Adam explaining the history of rock art in the Kimberley

Adam is a bundle of energy and is always ready for an adventure!  He's been exploring the Kimberley for many years and is a highly skilled guide who can travel safely in remote areas.  He has a wealth of knowledge to share about the land and its culture, plus his instinct to explore can lead him to beautiful undiscovered natural treasures.  His skills derive from a childhood spent outside navigating bush land, learning about plants and discovering wildlife.   

Adam began learning about birds from an early age; he grew up spending his free-time with his father who was a keen bird watcher (twitcher).  His Dad’s father was a ranger in NSW and his mother’s father is an ex-prawn trawler, a champion spear-fisher and an avid plant collector.   It was only natural that Adam would grow up to love the outdoors.  As a kid he was always on an adventure, if he wasn’t spear-fishing he was exploring the bush and spotting rare orchids and wildlife with his father and grandfather.   

Adam first drove the Kimberley’s Gibb River Road in his late teens and was blown away by the rugged landscape, untouched watering holes and detailed rock art paintings.  After working as a deckie and a pearl diver off the Kimberley coast for a couple of years, Adam decided tour guiding would be his ideal job and a great opportunity to explore the phenomenal Kimberley that he adored.  With Adam’s knowledge and experience in the Australian outback he landed his first guiding job instantly, and headed off on an adventure with a truck full of passengers!   

Adam has now been travelling the Top End region for 11 years and has been a guide in the region for 9 years, and throughout this time his passion for the land has only grown stronger.  He has an unbelievable eye for spotting animals; if it’s there, he’ll see it! He also has a keen interest in rock art, particularly Bradshaw rock art, one of the oldest types found in the Kimberley. Adam’s understanding of the region’s history, his respect for the land and his horticultural knowledge is second to none.   

Adam is approachable; he has a gentle nature and he is a friend to all his passengers.  He’s an Australian bushman driven by his love for the Australian outback and his genuine passion to discover and explore.
