Hi! I’m Tara,
Camel behaviourist, wellness expert and Head Camel Educator here at Camel Connection.
My team and I at Camel Connection help people just like you become Camel Confident & Camel Connected in camel training, handling, psychology & wellbeing.
Camel Connection unites camel owners, want-to-be owners, carers & lovers and helps them become Camel Confident & Camel Connected in all aspects of camels.
We teach people how to communicate with and care for camels through our Camel Connection Academy online & in-person events where Camel Connection and a deep love for camels is at the core of everything we teach.
Along my camel journey, I’ve learnt many things, often the hard way, which has made me determined to share all the camel information that I know with you through the Camel Connection Academy online & in-person courses.
My blog, YouTube videos, podcast and books are designed especially for the camel owner, want-to-be-owner, lover and or carer.
If you've been looking for people to mentor you in all things camels, you found them!
I’m based on the East Coast of Victoria, Australia, a stunning part of the world where I hold my bi-annual in-person Camel Courses at The Farm. I’ve had the pleasure, prior to COVID, of international travel teaching camel courses, but my favourite place is "home" with my kids, dogs, cats, poultry, ducks, donkey, horse, goats and of course my CAMELS!
I specialise in helping camel owners or wannabe owners get confident and connection with camels by learning how to handle, train, bond, communicate with and care for camels. Whether you want to start a camel business or do your own camel expedition or trek or simply achieve your dream of having a pet camel - we can help you!
We've had people from all over the world and all walks of life learn about camels with us: from Medical Doctors & Business Executives to Zoo Keepers & Hobby Farmers (and everything in between)...
Whatever your camel goal or idea or dream is we can help you, just like we've helped hundreds of others!
Everything we teach about camels comes from a place of connection, compassion & a deep understanding of camel psychology as well as camel biology, science & medicine thanks to our dedicated Camel Connection, Camel Vet)!
Being with camels is one of the biggest pleasures in life and we'd love for you to experience this too!

Give Tara a stage, microphone, video camera or soapbox and she’ll talk of some of the worlds most un-talked about subjects such as child sex slavery, baby loss, doing what you LOVE not what you SHOULD be doing... and....CAMELS!
Tara is the owner, Head Camel Educator & Behaviourist at Camel Connection. Tara specialises in sharing camel wellbeing information, mentoring camel owners, teaching camel husbandry in The Academy and conducting charity campaigns using camels.
A passionate and determined cameleer, philanthropist, mum to fur babies & humans and a biz owner who loves to bring people’s awareness to the camel’s magnificence and their ability to help people heal from trauma while having contact with them.
Life Coach turned camel communicator and biz owner, it's really her 4 children (one Angel child), her dogs and herd of camels that create a deep surge of inspiration, creativity and growth that fuel her contribution to Camel Connection, and all Charity Camel Trek endeavours.
She stands for compassion towards humans and camels [animals!], people doing what they LOVE not what they SHOULD be doing, crunchy kale chips and family time.
The camels are really the stars of the show, they are Tara’s humble and honest friends that will always walk by her side - she’s not a big fan of riding!
Tara met her first few camels in 2012, originally coming from the horse industry as a Natural Horsemanship trainer, camels were never in her life plan - EVER!
As a keen animal lover she immersed herself into learning about how a camel thinks (completely different to a horse, in case you're wondering) camel handling, training and how to bond and communicate with them and care for their wellbeing. Tara is an 'obsessive learner' meaning: in a short period of time (maybe one week or so) she gave up all her horses and turned camels into her life purpose.
Tara is the founder of Charity Camel Trek. To date (2014 & 2016), the Charity Camel Treks have raised over $22,000 for non-for-profit organisations close to heart.
Her 'day Job' consists of mothering - human and furry ones (first and foremost), teaching others how to connect & care for camels in The Academy, training and exercising her dogs, caring for all the animals on The Homestead, podcasting or filming (camels of course) and throwing out To-Do Lists because it's all too overwhelming!
