Troy de Haas was born and raised in Mt Macedon and spent his younger years training in endurance running and orienteering.

It could be said that Troy and his Father are responsible for bringing the sport of Orienteering to Mt Macedon and to this day, it is still a compulsory part of education at Macedon Primary. Troy spent many years representing Australia on the world stage in the sport and achieved some amazing results around the world.

A true ambassador of this great place, Troy has taken his love for the region around the world and after visiting over 70 different countries, is proud to be able to say he was raised amongst the wonderful environment Mt Macedon offers.
