I am a true blue, jandal wearing, BBQ loving New Zealander. My favourite spot in New Zealand, after Wanaka, of course, would have to be Akaroa. I grew up in Christchurch and just one hour away was Akaroa. My family still has a good old kiwi bach here and spending time with them, bare feet, BBQ dinners, wading in the sea is what it's all about. There are so many spots still like this in New Zealand; untouched pieces of paradise, and getting the chance to share some of these secrets with visitors and hearing about it afterwards still gives me a buzz.

For over 20 years now I have worked in tourism. During that time I have seen many clients return to me for help and support on their next journey, and it is so rewarding. Other roles I have had helped people see the world but I have to say I love being able to focus on my home and share the wonderful New Zealand with international guests.

I am originally from Australia but after visiting New Zealand I loved it so much that I settled here. Of course, I still support my home country of Australia in every sport - makes for good rivalry with my friends! I love this country and the opportunities it offers. I especially enjoyed my trip to Aoraki/Mt. Cook as well as taking a flight over Tongariro National Park both truly spectacular. Give me a call and we can plan the perfect vacation for you.

I was born in Dunedin, the lower South Island, but I did my last year of high school in Switzerland. I love to travel and have been to Europe, South East Asia, UK and Dubai but I visited Wanaka every year when I was younger, so I knew where I was always going to end up. I love exploring the outdoors and enjoy skiing, camping and 4wd so our base here in Wanaka is the ideal location for that. If I’m not around Wanaka taking photos in my spare time you will find me cruising to Dunedin to see my family on my motorbike! I look forward to working with you and creating your perfect holiday.

I was born in Cape Town and moved to the hustle and bustle of London when I was 10 years old. I craved fresh air, mountains and an outdoors lifestyle.  In 2018 I made the move to Wanaka and am loving every minute!! My weekends consist of trying to cram in as much adventure as possible. I absolutely love to explore and find hidden gems. To top it off I have the best job... sharing these hidden gems with you!

After travelling the world, it's true that there really is no place like home! I often head out on road trips for a week or a long weekend and take in as many sights and activities as possible. I have many highlight activities in NZ, the overnight Doubtful Sound being up there but also having the accomplishment of heading on a hike to see parts of NZ that you don't see from the road. The South Island of NZ is just spectacular and there really is something new to see around every corner!

First experiencing the South Island on a family road trip as a child, I still find I can't get enough of the stunning scenery our country has to offer. Coming off a long career as an international travel consultant I'm excited to now be selling New Zealand as a destination and the variety of experiences it has to offer.
