Our teams are made up of highly skilled, experienced and motivated walking track builders from Tasmania, Victoria, NSW and Queensland. As a result we are able to bring together teams to meet your construction, repair or maintenance requirements for any walking track almost anywhere in Australia.



Thomas Schmid

Thomas worked for the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area from the early 1990’s. Combining a love of bush walking and Australia’s remote natural areas, Thomas started TTMS in 2001 to work with National Park services across Australia to create new standards in walking track construction that would not only prevent further environmental damage but enable walking tracks to be positive experiences which contribute to society’s valuing of our natural areas.


Brett Tooker

Escaping Sydney in the early 1990’s Brett established a bush home and a working life on Tasmania’s walking tracks with the Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service.  Lured back to the mainland with TTMS, Brett has completed an exhausting list of natural stone and curving boardwalk projects from the Otway Ranges in Victoria to Mt Wollumbin (Mt Warning) in northern NSW.  Ironically but with deep satisfaction Brett has now lead many projects around his old home town of Sydney, in the Blue Mountains, Ku-Ring-Gai Chase and Royal National Parks.


Mark Berry

Escaping a career in front of a computer designing logos for corporations Mark joined TTMS to work in the bush and make a tangible contribution to society and the environment.   Since his start with us during a wet winter, camping and working for nine days at a time on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania, Mark has gone on to develop his passion for stone work.  Marks commitment to producing exacting results in high profile areas such as Wattamola in Royal National Park demonstrates his passion for track work with each new challenging project.


Andrew Ferguson

As a Tasmanian with deep attachment to Tasmanian’s wild national parks,  Andrew lead Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service remote track construction crews from the early 1990’s pioneering many of the techniques, such as the use of natural stone to build track structures.  With TTMS Andrew brought his skills to the mainland and has worked for over twenty years across Victoria, NSW and Queensland, on countless walking tracks, quietly raising the standard of Australia’s walking tracks.


Gavin Rose

From the early 1990’s Gavin worked on conservation projects supervising volunteers in Victoria and NSW but he become inspired to work on Tasmania’s walking tracks.  After seasons on the Overland Track and Frenchman’s Cap, Gavin has been with TTMS since 2001.  Gavin’s passion for dry stone construction took him to work on overseas walking tracks, including the Grand Canyon (USA) and Lake District (UK). Gavin continues to develop and innovate dry stone construction techniques for the benefit of Australia’s walking tracks.


Alek Cahill

As a qualified Geologist Alek decided that building walking track structures, with natural stone and board walks using sustainable recycled materials that would resist increasingly damaging climatic conditions, would a provide a more satisfying and rewarding career.   Alek has now built many kilometres of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic walkways which flow and curve gracefully through the bush and he has contributed significantly to streamlining the installation process minimising impact during construction and waste produced.
