Guide Profile

Mark has been involved in the Tourism Industry for over 30 years. With a background in outdoor activities he started his first business in 1988 (Carrai Adventure Tours) supplying activities such as abseiling, caving, canoeing and cross country bush walking. Ironically much of the work done by this business was in the form of training courses for long term unemployed and indigenous groups. He also wrote one of the original programs for utilising Experiential Leaning when working with young offenders.
After moving to Queensland Mark worked on Fraser Island for a period of 10 years. Initially with Kingfisher Bay Resort he developed a reputation as an outstanding Interpretative Tour Guide and was acknowledged in numerous publications including Lonely Planet. During this time he planned, implemented and conducted the highly regarded Wilderness Adventure 3 Day Tour (now known as Cool Dingo) specifically for backpackers. At a time when most backpackers visited the island on self drive tours this was an innovative approach to a valuable market.
Spending time with The Fraser Island Company Mark was once again charged with the responsibility of implementing new product in particular a 3 day camping tour, again an innovative product for the Fraser Island market.
In 2000 Mark and his wife Jody formed a partnership with Career Training Institute of Australia and commenced trading as CTIA Regional Queensland. Over the next 10 years Mark delivered training all over QLD specialising in Guiding. This tenure led to long term relationships with some of Qld's most recognisable tourism businesses.
In 2010 an opportunity arose to purchase a small tour business operating the Cape York Season. Off Road Adventure Safaris, operating since 2004, offered a bare bones camping tour.
Since purchase the business has been redeveloped to service the luxury camping / accommodated market and has been diversified to provide base camp logistics for environmental research teams/special interest groups.
