Tracy is the founder and lead guide for Off The Beaten Track WA and has a huge passion for getting people outdoors!
Tracy’s background is in marketing and events and loves being creative with nature and trails to bring you unique hiking experiences.
Tracy loves the energy of the Stirling Ranges, the coastline of the Cape to Cape track and the mammoth Karri trees in Pemberton. But nothing beats exploring in her own backyard, with her favourite Perth trails being Kitty’s Gorge and Mt Cooke.
“My favourite adventures have been my Cape to Cape end to end in Dec 2018, The Grampians Peaks trail in June 2019 and the very recent Stirling Ridge Walk in Sept 2019 – all of which have been alongside my amazing partner Andrew. The Ridge really tested me but I loved that sense of achievement from conquering WA’s most extreme hike!”
Andrew has been with OTBT from the very start as Tail End Charlie and now Leads the challenging Endurance Hikes!
Andrew is incredibly talented at the technical, artistic and lighting stuff and utilises these skills by bringing the WOW to OTBT events.
Andrew has always loved the outdoors and spent his 20s cycling through many UK hillsides. After arriving in WA, his love of road cycling morphed to a passion for mountain biking, hiking and camping.
His sense of adventure has led Andrew to Mt Snowden and the Black Mountains in Wales, the Grampians in Victoria, Cape to Cape, and the Stirling Ranges.
He will soon be adding the Overland Track to his long list of hiking achievements or rather crossing it off his long bucket list of hiking goals!
Aubrey is OTBT’s newest recruit and we think you’ll agree she’s delighful!
Aubrey first developed her fervor for the outdoors as a child, roaming the trails and mountains of Upstate New York with her family, and into her teen years with friends and colleagues.
In her first 4 years as an outdoor adventure guide at a kids summer camp, she began to see the wonderful benefits of bringing people together to immerse in nature.
After moving to WA, she has wandered many of the wonderful trails along WA’s coastline and camped in the beautiful parks of the stunning and serene Aussie bush.
Aubrey truly believes that the best experiences in life come from exploring together outside and she’s keen to share her knowledge and passion of outdoor recreation, yoga and meditation with Off the Beaten Track WA.
At the age of 23 Lou went overseas, and conquered Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. This hike really wet her appetite for overnight hikes.
Since then some of her biggest achievements have been:- Kepler Track (NZ), Thorsborne Trail (Qld), The Overland Track (Tas), The Teton Crest Trail (Rocky Mountains – USA).
She really enjoys spending any free time exploring the Perth Hills and the WA South West Region and loves meeting new people on hikes with Off The Beaten Track WA.
“I absolutely love the Stirling Ranges and have hiked most of the peaks with my three small children. My husband and I have just returned from an end to end on the Cape to Cape Track and it was just spectacular!”
Lou has been Tail End Charlie for the past year and in 2020 you’ll see her up the front as she begins leading OTBT hikes!
Dazza likes it hard and fast! Daz (Darryl) joined OTBT in 2018 as Tail End Charlie on our tough Endurance Hikes.
He is fantastic at giving you the confidence boost and support you need to get up those hills! He is our team clown and if you’re lucky enough to be on a hike with him, you’ll know why!
In 2018 he visited the Dandenong Ranges and did some epic exploring which ignited his passion for trail adventures! Daz enjoys hiking in the Perth Hills solo, with his family and with OTBT and his favourite trail is Kitty’s Gorge!
Daz’s background is in Emergency Response and he is a strong asset to our team!
