Our Team

Tracy Whitling

Having travelled extensively since my first trip with my mum to the UK when I was 11 years old, I have never looked back.  I love different cultures, food, destinations and the people. I have had so many different & wonderful experiences it’s hard to pick a favourite as each country is so unique.  The Great Wall of China, the Monks in Laos, the amazing people of Cambodia & Vietnam, the beautiful coast line of the Cinque Terre, the pyramids & people of Egypt, the beauty of South America including Machu Picchu &  Iguassu falls, the wildlife of South Africa & Botswana and the beauty of Victoria Falls and the list goes on and on.  I love coming up with an idea of a fabulous destination and organising my escorted groups from start to finish, then I enjoy travelling with like-minded people and travelling all other the world.  We have the most amazing customers and I love organising their dream holidays from year to year.  I have a very diverse group of clients who all share their own special travel stories and experiences with us. 

I have been in the travel industry for over 30 years and I started off my career working in the heart of Australia at Ayers Rock with Ansett NT and Ayers Rock touring before moving into the coach side of the industry then onto retail travel.  I have been here in Laurieton since the inception of our agency in 1989 and worked my way from accredited manager of the bus/coach company to the manager of our Travel Agency, then we loved the travel business and area so much, we bought the business in 1999.  

I have travelled extensively throughout 6 of the 7 continents of the world.  Life is short, you only live once, so enjoy the world.

Tracy Whitling

Earlier in my travel career, I drove for Top Deck Tours throughout Europe before heading to the centre of Australia to do guided tours around Uluru and the Olgas for 3 years before moving to the mid north coast doing coach charters and tours.  In 1999 I went from driving, guiding and escorting tours to the Travel Agency where I now organise our clients travel arrangements utilising my own travel experiences which include travelling extensively to 6 of the 7 continents
throughout the world.

I have been involved in Travel for over 30 years and there is nothing I would rather do than help clients with their individual travel arrangements.

Karen Moore
Having studied Geography, International Languages and Travel and Tourism throughout high school, I instantly feel in love with the world, and all its fascinating places, peoples and cultures.

My first job was in the Tourism Industry, working in the front office of Fantasy Glades.  Seeing how happy people were whilst on holidays, I knew that I wanted to be a part of that process. Whilst I continued working, I completed my certificates in travel, and so began my life as a travel consultant.

Since my first day, over 17 years ago, I have loved every part of my job, and continue to do so today.  I have travelled to throughout America, Asia, South Pacific and extensively throughout Australia and through my clients & work, I feel I have travelled the world multiple times.  I enjoy the challenge of putting together an itinerary to suit the needs of my clients.  I love the fact that you are learning new things all the time, and I relish the experiences my clients come back and share with me.

Having been with Tracy and Gil at helloworld LAURIETON (previously Travelworld Laurieton) for the last seven years, I have been very lucky to be given the opportunity to take away numerous groups from overnight show tours, and internationally to Norfolk Island.  This is a particular favourite part of my job. Getting to know our clients outside of the office is an absolute pleasure, and seeing them enjoy these experiences with the company of others on these tours is very special.

I look forward to continuing to help people experience the joy of travel.
