Barrington Coast Team Member

Originally from Sydney and followed the tree-changer’s dream on a small farm near Gloucester in the scenic foothills of Barrington Tops. The farm became home for a small herd of belted Galloway cattle (black with one white stripe), chickens that oddly turned into roosters and organic garlic (Italian pink and Spanish red) for Gloucester Farmers Market.

After 10 years, Thomas swapped to the sea-changer's dream in late 2021, moving to an easy-to-manage seaside residential block at Black Head.

He fell in love with the endless greens of the Barrington Coast after first visiting Gloucester Tops in 2007: the walks, lookouts, mossy cascades and ancient beech forest is like being on the movie set for Lord of The Rings. Discovering the beautiful beaches and lakes of the Barrington Coast was an extra bonus!

A Destination Barrington Coast team member with over 25 years experience in tourism, his must see locations are Gloucester Tops (of course), Ellenborough Falls, Wallis Lake and Seal Rocks.
