โ˜… On ๐‘ฐ๐‘ต๐‘ป๐‘ฌ๐‘น๐‘ต๐‘จ๐‘ป๐‘ฐ๐‘ถ๐‘ต๐‘จ๐‘ณ ๐‘พ๐‘ถ๐‘ด๐‘ฌ๐‘ต'๐‘บ ๐‘ซ๐‘จ๐’€ 2022 we celebrate the founder of Mansfield Bushwalks - Simone (Monnie) Richardson. Monnie was born in Mansfield over fifty years ago has lived here most of her life, completing schooling in Merrijig and Mansfield.

โ˜… Monnie worked as a primary teacher in Mansfield for around 15 years before taking a position with Mansfield Autism Statewide Services. In this role she regularly entered the natural environment including parks, reserves and alpine areas to support students to manage their stress, free time and social interactions. โ€‹ โ˜… Monnie was inspired to create something new for locals, visitors and educators; giving them the confidence to venture out into our beautiful bushland... and so Mansfield Bushwalks was born.

โ˜… As a pre-COVID enterprise this has been a long road but Monnie has shown resilience, capitalising on her many years of local knowledge, professionalism and stewardship, with a passion for the outdoor experience. As an accredited professional guide, Monnie can take you on and off the beaten track...

Today we celebrate you and your commitment to improving the lives of others!
