At Kangaroo Island Odysseys, we believe an authentic experience means so much more than just a tour. We’re very fortunate to have guides who, as well as being local, are incredibly passionate, experienced and professional, with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the island’s wildlife and attractions. Many also hold qualifications in hospitality, eco-tourism, conservation and land management.  

A number of our guides are multi-lingual, enabling us to offer tours in French, German and Italian, as well as Spanish, Mandarin and Japanese on request. We only ever have one language per tour, to enable our guests to better connect with the guide and the experiences. 

We asked our guides to tell us about themselves, their interests outside work and their favourite places to visit on Kangaroo Island. Get to know them...

The best thing about being a guide is showing off our beautiful and wonderful wildlife and Island, close and personal to our Australian and International guest from all over the world. Discovering, learning and seeing every day something new.

I'm interested in the Australian environment, animals and country.  I love travelling the world and learning about their people, culture and environments.

I don't have a favourite spot on Kangaroo Island, as each place on the Island has it's own beauty.

The best thing about being a KIO guide is being able to be out and about on the beautiful Island I love so much, searching for nature and sharing it with guests from all over the world. As a guide I'm still very excited about what might be around the next corner, our amazing nature is always surprising us

My interests outside of work is heading out and spending time in our beautiful nature, taking photos of what I see and sharing it. I love birdwatching, going out and spending time with the beautiful dolphins. Sometimes I'll get up before the sun comes up and spend time with a mob of kangaroos for half the day, love camping, fishing hiking, love our great outdoors and nature photography 

It's hard to pick my favorite place on the Island but if I had to I would say Cape du Couedic, Admirals Arch, Weirs Cove area, not only the best scenery, but we see the fur seals, sometimes dolphins, great sharks and in the season Southern Right Whales.

The best thing about being a guide with Odysseys is that every day is a different day with new challenges. There is always something new to learn  

I'm passionate about photography, food, travelling and motorbikes.
