Every since Harry was a young boy he has been walking, walking, walking. He started walking by following his father into the bush around Tumut, where he learnt the skills of navigation by reading the hills and rivers which flow down from the Snowy Mountains.
His passion for bushwalking allows him to explore nature and man made objects, such as discovering the old gold mining relics around Long Plain. When he's bushwalking Harry is into everything – from following the Tumut River, with its hazards of going thirsty and stepping on snakes, to searching for hidden waterfalls along Sandy Creek. He loves it all, including taking friends for long hikes such as the Hume & Hovell track, or playing with the wild Brumbies or other inquisitive animals, or just ‘sitting out’ a storm by himself up in the snow country.
Previously a schoolteacher, Harry shares many of his stories through books about the things he sees, hears, and smells whilst roaming in the bush. This video shows Harry’s excitement and love for the great outdoors as he describes his book, the Hume & Hovell Walking Track Guidebook, out at the trackhead by the Goobagandra River.
