The PCT Girl Gang is made up of Phoebe and Harriet Robertson and Meg Wettenhall. They are all originally from are from Melbourne, Australia and all have a love for the bush, ecology and above all adventure.
Harriet is a trained landscape architect and loves the Australian bush for its extreme climate and adaptive flora and fauna. A bit of a clown about town, Harriet loves a good laugh and keeps the group spirits high with absurd off topic remarks. Harriet is in it for the ride and wants to see how many good times she can milk from most situations.
Phoebe works in nursing and is the ultimate fearless adventurer, previously embarking in long distance and solo hiking. Phoebe is also involved in creatives scenes within Melbourne, playing in multiple bands and making zines and preparing fabulous dinner parties/house shows. With the most experience, Phoebe is often consulted as the stoic and informed hiking ‘guru’, bringing up the rear of the sindicate with a meditated confidence and assurance.
Meg has recently completed a bachelor of psychology and is taking a year off after intense study. Growing up on both urban and rural environments, Meg has an ease and comfort in all aspects of hiking. Everyday Meg takes the lead with a positive stride and a mind for problem solving and spontaneous decision making.
