Introducing Andree – Destination Specialist


Growing up, I have always had a love of travel and I feel very fortunate to be working here at Downunder Travel, sharing my love of vacations with our clients.  I think there is something for everyone in Australia and New Zealand. Whether you’re a beachgoer, hiker, desert or rainforest explorer, or you love the city life – these destinations have it all!  In addition, they’ve got a beautiful laid back culture and some of the best food and wine on the planet!  My favourite Aussie destination is Hamilton Island. It is the most picturesque, relaxing and beautiful place with plenty to do if you like to keep busy.  If it’s adventure you’re seeking, there is fantastic snorkeling right off Catseye Beach – walk out, pop your snorkel on and keep your eye out for schools of fish and turtles!


What I love about the South Pacific islands is that they are clean, welcoming and absolutely beautiful! The locals are always friendly and these places are very safe too. You’ll find that visiting any one of the islands is an experience for everyone; for both the adrenaline junkies or the soft-adventure, relaxation-seeking type.


I’m definitely one for getting off the beaten track. While I like seeing the iconic sights in each destination, I also like to delve a little deeper to the places less frequented by tourists such as Long Beach, Robe (South Australia).  With stunning turquoise water and a stretch of sand that goes on for kilometres, it’s simply beautiful! You can also drive your car onto the sand, set up for the day with some food and drinks and either join in a game of beach cricket with the locals, swim or surf, or just kick back and relax on the sand ...and wait for the ice cream truck to visit!   


When it comes to exploring when on holidays, I love to hire a car and the freedom to travel at my own pace and stop whenever for photo opportunities, food and stretching my legs.


I look forward to putting together an epic vacation for you!
