I was born in Melbourne and started in the travel business after my first 6 month backpacking trip around Europe in 1988. It’s funny to think back now and remember that I only went because everyone else was. However the ‘bug bit’ and I ended living in the UK for ten years and developing a love of travel and the feeling of stepping out of my world and into someone else’s’ albeit for a short time. I’ve now travelled extensively through Europe, UK, Ireland as well as the States and Canada. I have taken safari trucks around Africa and driven through Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
I have extensive experience travelling and sailing around the Kimberley region of Western Australia, which has been my main customer focus in the past few years
The Kimberley - where else! We are so lucky to have such a vast and largely untouched wilderness in our own back yard. The colours are spectacular and the array of bird and wildlife – not to mention waterfalls, history and rock art – make this a very special part of not only Australia but the world.
I do love the Four Seasons in the Rocks district of Sydney but I’ll stick to my theme of the Kimberley and say the Cable Beach Club. I truly believe it is where most people will be happiest when staying in Broome. It is absolutely in the best location and I love wandering around the gardens with the wallaby’s jumping around. There’s nothing like sitting in the Sunset bar having pre dinner drinks and then sitting under the frangipani trees by the pool having dinner. Breakfast looking at the ocean is a great way to start your day. I must mention the service as well – exemplary.
Going out to Mt Conner in the Red Centre for the day and hand feeding wild kangaroos water; croc watching and fishing in the Kimberley; flying over and then walking around the Bungle Bungles. Any good market anywhere!
