Why the hobbits?

It is a nickname we got from friends a while ago. It is also a not only a nickname that describes our size but also our adventurous spirit. We are a family of four and love going bushwalking every time we have the chance. We love exploring nature, to discover new places and wildlife. We simply enjoy the majestic beauty of Queensland.


We like making our bushwalking experience into a fairy tale. Finding trees that look like humans. Listening to the sounds of the forest as it sings. Sing songs and collect magic items along the way. Stay still when we see a butterfly. Find a refreshing fall and creek to relax and recharge our bodies. And the sound of a camera when it does Click!
