Originally born and bred West of the Blue Mountains, I moved to Western Sydney. This was my home for many years, from there I moved to New Zealand where my love for wildlife and beautiful scenery was truly discovered.
Having experienced New Zealand and Australia first hand as a resident and traveller offers me the best of both worlds supporting you in your travel plans. I often refer to myself as an OZ-WI (half Aussie, half Kiwi), my knowledge of NSW, Victoria and parts of Queensland is extensive, as well as travelling to all four corners of New Zealand. Let's have a chat, you'll be in very capable hands.

Originally from Sydney I grew up on the beach and have been lucky enough to travel to 7 out of the 8 Australian states and territories. I fell in love with New Zealand walking the 3000km Te Araroa Trail from Cape Reinga to Bluff. After spending a few years travelling and living overseas I knew I would one day come back to NZ because of the friendly locals and the outdoors being always on your doorstep. I love that you can live in the mountains and drive to the coast for a weekend surf trip. I’ll always be an Aussie at heart though, and my most recent Aussie trip was driving a camper along the East Coast from Sydney to Cairns.

Working in hospitality led me to a true passion for travel. Exploring my own special backyard here in New Zealand and the beautiful sights of Australia, two of my favourite locations to find a new adventure - whether it is for my clients, family, friends or myself! I have travelled New Zealand extensively and am slowly ticking off the vastness of Australia.
Next on my list will be to explore Tasmania, probably with a visit to Sydney to see family and Melbourne because, it is brilliant! If you are considering a New Zealand and Australia combo for your next trip down-under let's talk about making it truly memorable.

Born and Bred in Dunedin I started working in the outbound travel sector planning holidays to Australia and the Pacific Islands. I loved this work but after some time I wanted to get back to my passion, New Zealand and Australia. I focussed all my energy here and helped plan and arrange holidays for 1000s of visitors coming to our slice of paradise with New Zealand Fine Touring with the added benefit of being based in Wanaka my home away from home.
I love to go off the beaten track and camping with friends, walks, skiing basically most things outdoors. I would love to work with you to help tailor your New Zealand and Australian Journey.

I lived as a travel agent in Cairns for 5 years and I loved calling the Great Barrier Reef home. I love the long open roads and secluded beaches of Australia. But I swapped beaches for mountains coming to New Zealand and I love the alpine scenery and the sense of adventure in my home.

From girls' weekends to family holidays I've been lucky enough to extensively explore both Australia and New Zealand. From Melbourne, Sydney & the Hunter Valley wineries, Brisbane, The Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Hervey Bay, and the Whitsunday Islands. Along with Northern Queensland travelling Townsville to Cairns and the unforgettable Great Barrier Reef in Australia and too many places to mention in New Zealand I am well suited to make sure you see the very best of each destination.

Travelling has always been a passion of mine and after visiting 26 countries there really is no place like home! I have chosen to base myself in New Zealand but I love to visit our closest neighbours in Australia. I am happiest outdoors, running, hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking to cover all the beautiful places to see. I am passionate about seeing the real Australia and New Zealand and that is seen by lacing on your hiking boots and getting out there! My travel style is to see and do as many things as I can while still leaving enough time and energy to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner.

I have spent many years exploring and getting to know New Zealand and Australia. I look forward to working with people; preparing customised holiday itineraries that take into account interests and hobbies plus showcase the best bits and those 'must see' highlights.
My favourite places to explore are generally a little off the beaten track, or as we would say in New Zealand, out in the wop wops! A highlight for me in New Zealand is visiting and exploring anywhere in Fiordland National Park and in Australia, I love the red centre, especially when you are lucky enough to see it rain on Uluru!
I look forward to planning your holiday alongside you and ensuring that you get to see and do all that you wish for.

New Zealand and Australia are so diverse - but you don't need me to tell you that. I am a beach babe at heart and love spending my holidays in New Zealand relaxing in the Bay of Islands. Although I currently reside in Wanaka, New Zealand I have lived and worked in Australia. Kununurra for 3 months, that was my favourite destination - specifically Emma Gorge - and 4 years on the West Coast where I travelled extensively.

Living in Taranaki (NZ) and Chamonix (FR) later in my life has really made me appreciate the great outdoors. If you are wishing to come “down under” for a holiday, it’s not an easy task to choose which locations to visit as both New Zealand and Australia have so much to offer. I love Aussie for its amazing surfing in Noosa and Aotearoa for the majestic mountains. If you have a chance, visit both countries as they are exceptional. Overwhelmed by choice, I will help to guide you in finding the best possible travel itinerary.

Australia and New Zealand are both amazing countries not just to live in but also to visit. I am absolutely in love with Australia; the diverse range of wildlife (yes, there are scary ones too, but that makes it even more interesting) and the endless possibilities the country gives to get up and close to them. In New Zealand, my favourite things are the incredible landscapes and the local culture. Coming from the Philippines, I find that Maori culture is very similar to my country’s and it gives me a sense of being close to my home.
