An outgoing and knowledgeable host, Tanya brings to the role a passion for the environment, the community, and all things Launceston.
Tanya turned her back on a long and successful career in hotel management, to pursue her dream of starting a tourism business so that she could show off Cataract Gorge to the world and make a lasting positive contribution to the community.
In preparation for this new business, Tanya updated her knowledge base with a new Diploma in Travel and Tourism in 2016, and in 2017 she completed a Certificate III in Guiding to ensure the professional delivery of the guided walking experience.
After two years of juggling study, casual jobs, and business planning, Walk Cataract Gorge launched in 2018.
Tanya is now undertaking a Certificate III in Micro Business to ensure the best practice operation of the business into the future.
Tanya volunteers with Friends of Trevallyn Reserve (FoTR) monthly, assisting these dedicated local community members in the practical protection and improvement of native flora, by engaging in environmental maintenance and restoration. Which means they do a lot of weeding!
