Australia Specialist

When I was a kid, I had dreams of going to Australia. My dreams have come true as an adult. I am now an Australia Specialist, with over 34 years of travel experience and have been there multiple times.  It is a fantastic destination for those those that love outdoor photography as I do.  I have had the opportunity to capture Ayers Rock at Sunset and sunrise, iridescent fish swimming among the Great Barrier Reef and trekking in Kings Canyon with the myriads of birds with their colorful plumage in flight! The nature lovers don't forget the less visited "top end" with the city of Darwin and then Kakadu National park.  Check out my pictures from the Yellow Water Cruises from the Yellow Water Billabong.   On my last trip, I got to check off not one but two bucket lists items, both surfing on Bondi Beach and the Sydney Bridge Climb. 


Let me help you check a few things off your bucket list... It will be an adventure you will never forget!

Best Mexico Trip Yet!
We gave Jacqie a pretty big list of requests and a smaller budget and she delivered on all of them!!! She gave us plenty of options and helped us narrow it down to the best place for us! Great vacation, can't wait to plan the next one!

Bucket List trip!
This was our first time visiting Alaska and doing a cruise. What a wonderful experience it was! Jacqie was able to explain everything to us prior to our trip starting, so nothing was a surprise! Great experience that we will remember forever!
