Travel through the rustic outback or elegant cities to enjoy sumptuous food and wine. Whatever your adventure or desire the Australian landscpae has it all – why wouldn’t you spend time exploring my home, beautiful Australia.

I’ve partnered with the best local operators to bring you holiday packages in Australia that will leave lasting memories.

about me

Travel is a passion that lead to a career. For the past 25 years I have been creating amazing travel and holiday experiences for my clients.

I’ve covered the globe with travels through Europe, wandering across Africa for 3 months, criss-crossing numerous Central and South American countries including sojourns into the Amazon and Galapagos and enjoyed Caribbean hospitality. Weekends away in America (well, I was living in Canada), skiing the Canadian slopes, cruising the Pacific and touring SE Asia including travelling the length of Vietnam. Have also backpacked through China, travelled most of the roads there are to travel in New Zealand in a trusty old Holden HQ and lazed on tropical Pacific islands. Explored all states and territories of our own wonderful country. I’ve done the tours and high end travel as well as industry trips and disappeared into continents for months on end with only a backpack and my wits. Once travelling got in my blood it never stopped.

Professionally, I have worked in travel agencies in Australia, New Zealand and Canada and during this time I have helped hundreds of families, couples, groups and solo travellers from all over the world plan and enjoy hassle-free, fun filled holidays.

This vast experience gives me a unique understanding of the common issues and things to be mindful of when planning your holiday to ensure that your dream plans become a reality.
