Our Team

 

Saibra

Thank you for visiting our website. I am the owner of Australind Travel & Cruise Centre and have been for more than eight years. I have previously run successful businesses in both hospitality and retail. I am also a qualified Registered Nurse, and with many years experience working in Palliative Care, I know that it is important to make the most of what life has to offer. I believe that holidays are some of the most important and memorable times we have and as your travel consultant I am here to help you design the holiday of your dreams.

I have been fortunate to have travelled extensively over the years, travelling to destinations such as New Zealand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mauritius, South Africa, London and the UK, Europe, America, Egypt, Dubai, Vietnam Singapore and I have also seen a great deal of Australia.

My favourite destinations are: London - I have a special bond with this city as I lived in London and from there travelled extensively through the UK, Europe and Eastern Europe. I have returned to Europe many times and more recently experienced the magic of travelling on a River Cruise through France. Belgium - I love the people and the chocolate! Egypt, cruising the Nile and seeing the ancient wonders of Egypt was an unforgettable experience.

Kylie at bryce Canyon My desire to explore and discover the world was realised when I moved to London at 21. I spent the next four years living and working there, soaking up the culture as I backpacked through the United Kingdom, Europe, Africa and America. It was love at first sight when I arrived in Kenya for an eight week holiday through Africa which then evolved into a job as a Tour Leader for several overland companies for the next year. I was extremely lucky to be travelling the African continent for work while sharing the amazing experiences with fellow travellers.

On my return to Australia I worked as a Travel Consultant in Perth and the North West before having a family and settling in Bunbury. I have recently returned to the industry and absolutely love organising holidays for my clients.

This picture of me was taken at Bryce Canyon Utah, America, a spectacular National Park near the Grand Canyon.

Tralee

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Dunedin, in the far South of New Zealand. I was fortunate enough to road trip all around the country when I was growing up, which gave me a first-hand experience and knowledge of New Zealand.

After moving to Australia during high school, I had the opportunity to act on my passion for travel. I am now in my fourth year in the travel industry and I thoroughly enjoy organising travel arrangements for clients. I always like to get to know my clients so that I can select places and tours that would be best suited to their particular interests.

I have a keen interest in cruising and cruised through Asia in April 2016, and I still go back to New Zealand quite regularly. I absolutely loved my trip to the United States - particularly New York! I have also travelled to Mauritius, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Bali, and around Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, South Australia and throughout WA.

Mandy

My journey started in 1998 when I was fortunate enough to get my dream job right out of high school as a travel consultant. My passion and desire to assist my clients with their travel arrangements saw me achieve my greatest goal of becoming the highest selling agent in WA, as well as being voted in the top 5 sales consultants nationally for two consecutive years. I was also lucky enough to become one of the highest selling consultants for Qantas Holidays International & Domestic Destinations for three years in a row. I now have three beautiful children and have recently returned to the travel industry after taking a break to raise my family. 

I have been lucky enough to travel to some wonderful destinations including UK, Italy, Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, UAE, Reunion Island, Bali, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu. I recently returned from Europe where I travelled by train through Poland. Closer to home I've visited Adelaide, Uluru, Darwin, Gold Coast, Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Daydream Island, Tropical North Queensland, Tasmania, Melbourne, Sydney and I have travelled throughout WA.

Stephanie

Hello I’m Stephanie and I am the newest member of the Australind Travel team.

I have always had a passion to become a travel consultant and over the past couple of years I have done work experience and worked on a casual basis for Australind Travel & Cruise Centre. In early 2016 I completed my Certificate III in Tourism and in July 2016 I started as a Junior Travel Consultant with Saibra and her team. 

During my lifetime I have travelled to Singapore, Phuket, Gold Coast, Cairns, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Broome and Uluru. The places I am most keen to travel are Bora Bora, Fiji and Canada and Alaska to see polar bears! I look forward to assisting you with the planning of your holiday in the near future.

Sharon

My start in travel began, what seems a lifetime and a different career ago, when I headed off from NZ with a backpack and a one-way ticket to the UK in 1984. I did a ten week European camping adventure to get started, staying on for two years to work and travel within the UK and Europe.
 
Before I headed back (via Asia), I stopped in Perth, and never left. After several more trips from Western Australia to places such as Scandinavia, USA, Canada, and an incredible trip to Egypt which remains the highlight, I then decided on a career change and chose to study as a Travel Consultant with AFTA. I had two major positions in the retail travel industry in Perth, before I took a side step and specialised in airfares and ticketing for 12 years. Relocating to Bunbury several years ago, I have recently joined the great team at Australind Travel & Cruise Centre as a casual consultant.

I have been fortunate to explore some great destinations: UK, Ireland, Channel Islands, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, former Yugoslavia, Turkey, Greece, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Dubai,  Egypt, Bali, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Fiji, Raratonga, and extensively throughout New Zealand. Western Australia became my home, and I have spent considerable time in all states and Territories except the ACT. I also had the opportunity to take some cruises, when I first came into the travel industry.

Shanae

My story in travel started when I was 18 when I travelled overseas to live in Norway and Sweden for a year. When I returned home I knew I had to start a career in travel. It was my 19th birthday when that career began and five years on I am still in the industry. Living overseas sparked my passion to become a travel consultant.

I love assisting and organising client’s holidays and giving advice. If I am unfamiliar with a particular destination I will do extensive research so I am able to provide as much information as possible. I am confident in what I do and truly want my clients to experience the best and have memories for life. The most enjoyable part of my job is contacting clients when they return home and hearing all about their adventures!

Throughout my time in travel, I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries such as; Australia, Bali, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Hawaii, Fiji, Western Canada and New Zealand. My favourite destinations would have to be Africa and Hawaii, both amazing places and very different.

Fiona

I completed my travel studies and began working in the travel industry in 1998. I spent several years in Perth working as both a retail and corporate travel consultant. During this time I became a specialist consultant for Singapore Airlines and was also fortunate enough to complete studies at The Los Angeles Travel Academy, UCLA. 

Inline with my passion for travel, I moved to Scotland, where I lived and worked for 18 months. I am enjoying my return to the travel industry, joining the Australind Travel team in 2013, after a break to have a family and explore our states North West.

Most recently, I have visited New Zealand and qualified as a ‘100% Pure New Zealand Specialist”. In addition to this, my travel experience includes; Bali, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Mauritius, Hawaii, LA, Ireland, England, Scotland, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria. I look forward to assisting you with your travel arrangements.

Fiona is currently on maternity leave, please contact another member of the team for any assistance.
