Nature Engagement Tours
Known for his colourful personality and love of ecology, Paul is the first to admit that he’s more at home in the bush than he is in his own house in Wollongong. Before starting Nature Engagement Tours Paul worked for 12 years in childcare, and has a Diploma in childcare. He was also an outdoor education guide at school camps, where he would take kids and teenagers bushwalking and teach them about the local ecology. The connection with the Deua National Park comes from his early childhood when he spent most of his school holidays out in the bush with his father. As he spent more and more time in National Parks he became fascinated with the ecology and the protection of these places of wild beauty.
Nature Engagement Tours was born
A pivotal moment came when Paul got a call from the New South Wales Premier’s office. The then Premier, Bob Carr was an avid bushwalker himself and often went on holidays to the New South Wales South Coast with his wife. He was about to make the final decision on the borders of the Deua National Park and he wanted Paul’s input. It was Paul’s local knowledge of the Deua (and possibly the Premier’s own appreciation of the natural world), that helped cement the protection it has today.
These experiences showed Paul that the key to conservation is about sharing your passion for nature with others. When you can give people experiences of connection in places of natural wonder, it changes their value of these magnificent places in a permanent and tangible way.
He decided that from then on he would spend his time opening the eyes of others to the beauty of the natural world by taking them there himself, on guided nature engagement tours.
Paul is thrilled to now be offering several guided tours through the Budawang ranges & Morton National park specifically for our visitors here at “The Chocolate Cottages” He provides fabulous day tours perfectly designed for family groups & friends.
