About us

Regina Gleeson

Owner/director Surf Coast Walks

Regina is passionate about the outdoors and about good food, wine and coffee. She likes to think she's a foodie!

After a satisfying career in teaching with a focus on Outdoor Education and languages, she left her profession to start her sea change on the Surf Coast. She spends as much time as possible on the beach –swimming, snorkelling and boogie boarding. She is also keen on Pilates and yoga, and cycling.

Regina also loves the bush and walks highlights have included the Overland Trail in Tassie, Victoria's High country and parts of the Larapinta trail. She brings a great knowledge of natural and social history to her walks.

On our walking tours she is one of our guides, a driver and the cook of some of our wonderful food.


Philip Avery


Phil has been working as an outdoor educator for nearly 20 years in schools, TAFE Colleges, Universities and community organisations. He combines his local knowledge of the Surf coast with his vast guiding experiences to cater for a variety of clients/experiences.

He is an active member of several local conservation groups such as Surfers Appreciating the Natural Environment who are involved with regeneration programs along the coast. Phil has current wilderness first aid qualifications and is a keen surfer, cyclist and walker.

Justin Carter


Justin lives and works along the Surf Coast. Growing up in this raw and rugged environment he quickly developed his love for the outdoors with most weekends spent outside: surfing, snorkelling, canoeing or bushwalking.

After spending a year travelling in 2003, visiting countries such as Canada, Mexico, France and Portugal, he decided to return to his roots on the Victorian coastline in 2004.

Using the knowledge he had gained from his travels and love of the outdoors he decided to study as an outdoor leader. This soon led to work as a freelance outdoor guide up and down the Surf Coast. Justin's local knowledge and broad experience is a great asset on his walks.

As well as his love for the environment Justin also has a passion for music, playing with his band around Australia and overseas.


Sharon Blum-Caon


Sharon is an educator and consultant who has worked in many areas of the environmental sphere. A trained scientist, she has worked in the manufacturing, agricultural, and local government sectors specializing in environmental policy and management systems.
Her passion for the ocean and the Australian bush has brought her to live and work in the Surf Coast of Victoria, where the bush meets the sea. A mother of two, Sharon enjoys the water from above and below in her spare time, surfing and snorkelling. Together with her love of music, good food & local history, her enthusiasm for all things Surf coast is infectious. Sharon's knowledge of the coast through the prisms of her broad environmental knowledge and of local history is a delightful feature of the walks she leads.
