My Bio Travel is a great passion - so too is photography. I'll take every chance my wife allows to get out in the bush and explore parts well off the beaten path.

I love the Australian bush, particularly its rainforests. At home I grow orchids and small children (so far the collection extends to two children, and about 200 orchids).

My all-time favourite destination is Nepal, where I've trekked to Mt Everest several times (and planning several more trips in years to come). Vanuatu comes second - for its beautiful scenery, superb underwater life, and its friendly people.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Lamington National Park in Queensland.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
