M18767 was established in 1992 by former town planner Joan Masterman. Together with architect Ken Latona, Joan had been instrumental in setting up Tasmania’s first hut-based guided walk along the famous Overland Track in 1987. That background laid the groundwork for the establishment of Friendly Beaches Lodge and the creation of M18767. Joan is deeply committed to caring for the environment and is still involved in every aspect of operating the walk and the lodge. She also has a talent for attracting outstanding people to staff her walks: the wonderful guides and lodge hosts that help to make the walk such a special experience.
