Meet the Feet

Meet Rosie, Dirty Feet Tours founder and lead guide! She’s a proud Denmark resident and Mum of two boys, with very little passion for fashion – although she does get very passionate about appreciating and enjoying this unique slice of paradise on the south coast of Western Australia.

Rosie began running seriously in 2009, first running the 12km Perth City to Surf and then going on to run half marathon road events. After the birth of her second child in 2014 Rosie felt a strong desire to strap on sneakers and run away daily – she quickly fell in love with the beauty and challenge of south coast trails and hasn’t looked back since! She’s trained for and competed in trail events throughout the south west region as a solid middle-of-the-packer runner.

Rosie is trained as an Ecologist with an additional background in environmental and outdoor education/guiding, and when she’s not tearing up the local trails she can be found working for a local non-profit environmental organisation, or being a bit of a musician in her spare time.

Do you guys have some Terms and Conditions I can take a look at?
Sure do! We’ve uploaded our Terms and Conditions here for your reading pleasure.

“Throughout a recent guided bush walk along the Bibbulmun Track, we were inspired by Rosie’s passion for the outdoors and knowledge of South coast environment, plants and animals. Rosie managed our pace and comfort along the 8km day walk, and we learned so much more about our back yard and ‘The Bib’.

We plan to take a leaf from the Dirty Feet Tour book by sharing our experience far and wide, and hope to get Dirty Feet with Rosie again soon!”
