Award Winning tour Guide - Pete Baxendell

PETE BAXENDELL, owner/driver and an accredited guide & naturalist, was born and bred in the native bush of East Africa.

- excerpts from the article by Shane Nichols - Editor of the Port Douglas Gazette/News Corp

"...Taking guests on his (Pete) private tours to a roster of secret spots he scouted out years ago is keeping him pretty fit. But then his entire history, back to running around in the Kenyan bush as a kid, has been an outdoors life, and a colourful one at that. . . .

. . . Peter and Trish bought some cane land at Wonga when it was subdivided, built a house and moved there a few years later. He needed a new line and tour guiding seemed a natural fit. He did a TAFE course in guiding and nicked the course title for his own tour operations title. He worked for a while with BTS and thenstruck out on his own.

‘‘Best thing I ever did,’’ he says. He knew he would be a one-man band so made a point of exploring the region’s peaks, valleys and beaches for places to take people – ‘‘my own niche’’, he calls it.

His business got a boost when he received rave reviews from two writers for Frommer’s. His listing in the famous travel guide plus a constant stream of compliments from the likes of TripAdvisor mean he has continued to flourish with his guided tours. His passion for indigenous culture and the values of the Daintree area make him a popular host. Plus there is that bit of charisma of the man himself – that presence and the sense that you’re in the company of the real deal."
