Introducing Taryn Redfern - Destination Specialist
I caught the travel bug at a very early age – my parents took my sister and I to several Asian destinations. Initially, I wanted to become a flight attendant and became immediately heartbroken when I learned that I was too short for the role! Not to worry though, my passion for travel brought me to the wonderful world Travel Consulting in 2005 and I never looked back!
I worked my way up to both Senior Consultant and Travel Supervisor positions while in Perth, my home town. I travelled to Canada on a work trip to see the Vancouver, Whistler, Banff and all the sights in between. I didn’t quite make it to Calgary but convinced my husband we should move to Canada on a working holiday visa. After 6 months of the working holiday visa in Calgary, we moved back to Perth and realised missed Canada so much that we decided to return and live in Calgary where we currently reside.
My favourite destination in the South Pacific is Fiji. My husband and I honeymooned there so naturally, it’s a very special place for us, but I like to encourage our travellers to go there for Fiji’s stunning beaches, jungle hikes, incredible diving and snorkelling, that laidback ‘beach-time’ vibe and very friendly locals (Fiji currently holds the title of the “Happiest Country in the World” according to a study by research organization, Win/Gallop in 2015). So there are many great reasons you need to stop whatever it is you’re doing and head to the islands of Fiji!
Of course, having been born and raised in Perth, I can go on and on about all of the beautiful, incredible regions that Western Australia, and Australia as a whole, have to offer. From the breath-taking wine and dining regions, crystal clear coastal landscapes, incredible wildlife, and so much more... there is something in Australia for absolutely everyone.
I look forward to putting together your most amazing itinerary yet!
