Meet the person behind the passion

Natasha Dawson

Guide/Business owner/Adventurer

I have explored this wonderful, diverse region for the past two decades as an environmental educator and bushwalker.

The best way to experience and connect with a landscape is to walk it, tread lightly, explore culture and history, support communities and share with others.

Treading lightly

Walk the Limestone Coast (WTLC) is committed to treading lightly, supporting the regeneration of the region and local communities.

We do this by giving back, promoting local businesses, minimising waste and ecological offsetting.

When you join a multi-day tour we will offset your ecological footprint for the week by supporting Port MacDonnell Landcare Group to re-establish habitat.

Some feedback from our adventurers...

Bec, Brisbane - 2023
We embarked on the Taste of the Aussie Camino with Natasha in September and it was fantastic! My husband and I (both teachers in Secondary Catholic schools), did this to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.

Ange, Penola - 2022
I have completed a few walks with Natasha from Walk the Limestone Coast. Tash was very well organised and knowledgeable, she was respectful of the land we were crossing and passionate about the environment. This was an amazing few days, I loved the whole experience! Looking forward to more hikes, thank you.
Vicki, Mt Gambier - 2021
If you are thinking of going on one of these walks, just do it! Professional, courteous and caring. I have done two multi day walks with Natasha. I wouldn’t hesitate to go on another trip and urge you to just book a tour if you’re already reading this! Great walks, great company and great service. Thanks for your help and guidance Tash.
