Simon Flower

I was born in Bristol in the UK and lived in London until my mid-thirties. My first visit to Australia was as a backpacker on a working holiday visas in the early 1990s. I travelled and worked all over the country – factory worker in Sydney, travel agent in Melbourne, removalist in Adelaide, banana farm worker in the NT and finally a barman in Cairns.

I emigrated to Australia in 2002 and in my first travel job here I was immediately put in charge of domestic enquiries as none of my Australian colleagues could match my knowledge of Australia!

My favourite Australian Destination

Broome and the Kimberley of course but I am also very keen on the east coast of Tassie.

Best place to stay In Australia

Hayman Island Resort

Best Australian travel experience

Travelling by small ship from Cairns to Darwin.
