Cape to Cape Explorer Tours guide Randall Smith has been nominated for a Golden Guide award in WA’s top tourism awards. Randall will go up against a field of the state’s best tourism guides for the FACET Golden Guide Award at the Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards.

A team effort on the Track, says Randall

Randall, pictured above (right) with fellow Cape to Cape Explorer Tours guide Colin Fox, said he was honoured to be shortlisted for the prestigious award. “Being nominated for the Golden Guide has been an absolute honour. And I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the process,” he says. “I know that I wouldn’t be in this position if I didn’t have an amazing team around me. I am so psyched to be a part of this great team. And I owe the whole team a huge mention to be in this position! To be recognised for the work I’ve put into the Track has been an incredible recognition. And I am super grateful to have been nominated and now made the finals.”

Sharing stories to encourage connection and conservation

Possibly our most enthusiastic guide, Randall is a “frother” for all things ocean and nature-related. His childhood was spent between Geraldton, Perth and Margaret River in a family that celebrates nature, surfing, fishing, hiking and exploring. But the Margaret River region won out thanks to a “love of the coastline and its energy, raw rugged beauty, clean crisp air and the healing nature of the ocean”.

Randall has previously worked as a snowboarding guide in Canada and in UNESCO-listed Fremantle Prison. “I love taking people on the Cape to Cape to celebrate the environment, share stories and encourage conservation,” he says. “I’m absolutely in love with the wildlife. And I love being a part of a like-minded team.” Randall is also finishing a primary teaching Masters and is amped to “become a mentor for all the groms and get the next gen frothing”.

Surfpoint Resort’s Nic Chirico also shortlisted for tourism award

Meanwile, our Surfpoint Resort accommodation general manager Nic Chirico was also nominated as a finalist in the awards. She goes up against a class field shortlisted for the Award for Individual Excellence in Customer Service. Surfpoint Resort is part of the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours stable of buisnesses. Nic, pictured above with her partner and Surfpoint maintenance manager Nick Campbell, takes amazing care of our hikers when they’re based our Cape to Cape Track accommodation hiking hub.

Following Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ acquisition of Surfpoint Resort, Nic became resort general manager in 2019. She lives at Surfpoint with her partner, New-Zealand-born Nick. Both have a deep love of and connection to the indigenous culture of the land.
