Peggy Maeshian

I have been working in travel for most of my working career. I travel every chance I get.
Australia as a destination offers so much for travellers to explore and enjoy in each region of Australia.
Australia offers exceptional nature experiences and pristine environments unmatched anywhere. Once is not enough to visit Australia as its size is not appreciated by many, the Australian being big enough to fit most Europe in our country.
If you enjoy wildlife, fine food and wine, rain forests outback or beach, reef or sophisticated city experiences Australia has something for every visitor.
I am based in Sydney and travelled in Australia extensively and have literally hundreds of experiences I can recommend for you.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I enjoy working with high end itineraries and incentive groups enabling them to visit everything Australia has to offer in comfort and luxury. I am a bit of a "foodie" and enjoy combining excellent food experiences with great unforgettable itineraries."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I began my career in the accounts department of a major travel organisation outside of Australia. During the early years in accounts I quickly realised that I was more interested in travel than accounting . I was fortunate to be able to travel extensively throughout the world and eventually travelled to Australia.
I fell in love with Australia travelling to most parts of the country and eventually I migrated here. In Australia I have worked in the inbound tourism industry form many years and enjoy showing people "my Australia". Some of my favourite parts of Australia include Uluru and Kangaroo Island."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I remember my first visit to Uluru and seeing the field of light, this spectacle in the Australian desert is one that has to be experienced first hand. Also whilst in Uluru we had dinner under the stars at the "Sounds of Silence" dinner a truly unique experience in the desert.
Kangaroo Island is rugged and beautiful, I loved seeing wildlife up close in its natural environment, seeing both Seals and Kangaroos on the beach one morning, nature on the doorstep of a five star resort ."
