Find out who is looking out for you Barefoot Tours
Your Barefoot guides have all been involved in tourism and tour guiding for many years. They have traveled extensively throughout Australia and the world, finally settling down in one of their favourite places, Cairns in the beautiful Far North Queensland.
If you are looking for things to do in Cairns, ask your guide for some advice about Cairns… Cairns has so much to see and do, you’ll soon see why we at Barefoot Tours love Cairns so much!
Your Barefoot guides are all excellent swimmers with experience in water safety, so if you tend to impersonate a rock while swimming, don’t worry, you’re in pretty good hands.
- First Aid & CPR trained

Dylan comes with a bucket load of laughs, excitement, adventure and so much more – all the ingredients for an epic trip with us. Safety is also one of his top priorities and you will recognize this with his sharp life guarding skills that he’s been working on since the age of 17 or 18 (7 years ago). Dylan has also completed training in fitness, sports medicine and yoga. Loving his positive, vibrant attitude and we are glad to see him back with Barefoot since his return from “lifeguarding” in Denmark.
Captain Matty is back on the road, and has been working for Barefoot Tours since opening in 2010 (with a short break in between). Full of fun, adventure, passion and entertainment no two days is ever the same with Matty. His one-of-a-kind outrageous personality will have you in stitches all day. He is definitely one of our top 3 tour guides here at Barefoot Tours.
Brendan aka Brucey
Rocking the Fro!!! He answers to many different names including Brendan, Brandon, Brucey, Legend, Shit guide… just to name a few! A keen boatsman… Brucey also works for himself with his lovely lady Lisa, doing private fishing & snorkelling trips in Cairns for small groups of 5-8 people. Brucey loves a laugh, he’s super outgoing, loves a joke and some good ol’ banter… and of course he’s a little bit Bogan (What’s an Aussie tour guide without the typical Aussie rocking attitude?), he has a cracking personality and will definately be the light of your day! Another one of our top 3 guides here at Barefoot!
Reservations & Officework
Started with Barefoot Tours back in July 2017, excited and passionate for tourism in Cairns. Chelsea has traveled solo to more than 20 something’ countries before the age of 21. She moved to Cairns around 2013 where her career advanced in Tourism. She is trained in first aid, rescue, fire and survival at sea. Her previous jobs included working as Dive Master out on the Great Barrier Reef, Educational Tourism for groups, Local travel agent and Event Coordination for Tourism. Chelsea met her man Farley in 2015 and decided she couldn’t part with Cairns or Farley.
Paper pusher, “Role model”… We are not too sure what to call him, he wanted a description so here it is!
Farley is a true local, born and breed in Cairns. Super fun, outgoing, adventurous and full of energy. Farley works elsewhere but he wanted his picture up on our team wall so here he is. On his weekends you can occasionally find him out on tour with us, playing tourist in his home turf, taking his dog for a swim at one of Cairns many water holes or riding his motorbike up the coast with the boys. Farley also participates in most of the beach clean ups we do around Cairns on a monthly/bi-monthly basis.
La Kombi is a millennium kid, she really is the one that really bring us all together and take us places… She loves fun, excitement, adventure, and cool music. You’ll see more of her outgoing personality once you step inside the bus. Soon you’ll see Kombi’s boyfriend Trudy strutting the streets as well… That’s right guys La Kombi is no longer a single lady!
