About: I’m an absolute outdoors nut that is always up for a challenge. I love NZ and love showing and teaching others about our beautiful homeland even more. If I’m not paddling, pedalling or running you will find me hiking in the mountains.

Kiwi born and bred I love everything to do with this beautiful place. I truly believe it is one of the best places on earth and there is no better way to see it then by getting out and exploring. I have a passion for teaching others about the outdoors and love to see people thriving in the NZ wilderness. I have a creative streak so you may even get to experience some outdoors crafts on your journey throughout or even some fresh baked goods.

What to wear

Hikes // You must ensure you are well prepared for any hike in New Zealand as weather can be a serious threat to those outside. Your Bushman will check your gear and decide on whether you have met the minimum requirements before heading out. For more on this,visit our FAQ here. You will be emailed an full itinerary upon the completion of your booking. 

Food to bring

Day Hikes // We recommend light snacks and energy food while out walking and full, protein heavy meals for your lunches and bigger breaks. For example, energy or protein/breakfast bars, "scroggin" or a bag of mixed nuts, wraps with perhaps white meats, heavy salads and sauce, or opt for just about any meal from Back Country Cuisine.

Multiday Day // Expanding on from above, we recommend something to chew away at while out. A good energy boost on hikes with hills could be Pascal's Jet Lollies - which are high in energy and quite light. For breakfast, try the small porridge satchels and coffee/tea satchels. Again, dinners can be covered in one swoop with the Back Country's selection. For more, visit our FAQ below.




“Bushman Jackie was a pleasure to spend a day with. She was able to quickly adapt to our children and their keen-ness to being out and about. We really enjoyed the sensory hour in the morning which really put us in touch with New Zealand’s eco system… actually really special. Would highly recommend Jackie again!”



“I had a day free after a work trip and wanted to get out and see what Christchurch had to offer out in the hills. Jeez, what a climb we had! I haven’t been gasping for air like that in a while. Jackie clearly does this for a living but she allowed a great pace which made me feel heaps more comfortable. It was so easy to chat with her once we summited and could relax. I know what I’ll be doing once I’m back! Cheers Jackie!”
