This Guidebook has been created by our friends at the #lostmtns team which began as an enthusiastic bunch of Mountain locals with a common passion for getting out exploring and making the most of our epic home. They began sharing their adventures on Instagram in 2017, which quickly gained amazing support and a passionate following across Australia and around the world.
The team then started tagging their posts with #lostmtns as our Mountain home always seems to have more secrets to reveal. This has since taken on a life of its own, becoming a slogan for what they do with their squad becoming known as the #lostmtns team.
The #lostmtns team is about places, not people, so they feature themselves very little and try to keep a low key vibe in the community by allowing landscapes and horizon lines, secrets and legends to do the talking.
The team has spent many muscle-quivering months trekking, abseiling, climbing, camping, photographing, drone piloting, designing, writing, trail-running, legend-hunting, coffee-drinking and falling off skateboards to make this Guidebook as epically informative, entertaining and inspiring as it can be.
They've wrangled the talents of local legends such as photographers Adam Scarf & Simon Carter and designer David Smith from Solitary Fox. The intention was to create a Guidebook that will be the centrepiece of coffee tables for years to come.
We hope this book motivates visitors and locals alike to put down the remote and emerge blinking from virus-imposed isolation, dig deep into the #lostmtns, support local business and create some unforgettable experiences!
