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.

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.
