Our Family

“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organisational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

– Andrew Carnegie

  Liam is a Tassie local raised in Lachlan in the Derwent Valley. A born adventurer, Liam spent his childhood exploring his large “backyard” and revelling in his natural surrounds. He delighted in exploring the town’s undiscovered places and in sharing all the delights he uncovered with his family and friends.

Adventure is Liam’s first passion and his second is food. After finishing his apprenticeship as a chef in Hobart, Liam left Tasmania in his early twenties to pursue his career. Overseas, he was provided with opportunities to work alongside world class chefs in some of the most exclusive hotels and restaurants.

Many years later, Liam has returned to the Upper Derwent Valley and calls the outskirts of Mount Field National Park home. Liam is truly passionate about Tasmania and running a successful tour operation. His tours provide travellers with a unique but intimate adventure which educates visitors and showcases the raw beauty of the Derwent Valley and South-West National Park.

When Liam is not running his adventure tour company he can be found tending to his organic vegetable garden, fishing in the Tyenna River that borders his property, playing his guitar or planning his next overseas adventure.

Fiona grew up in the lower Blue-Mountains in New South Wales and now calls Tassie home. She is also passionate about travel and adventure and spent many years travelling overseas, where she chased the winters ski instructing, studied natural horsemanship, worked as an international nanny and home-tutored on a remote cattle station in Central Australia.

Liam and Fiona are both optimistic about their future in their new home town and are committed to building Tassie Bound. They hope to inspire positive change and plan to re-invest Tassie Bound’s success into the community and into Tasmania’s adventure tourism sector.

Their family is quickly growing and now includes their kitten Inca, adopted from the RSPCA, and their part Clydesdale horse, Drummer.
