BARBARA KOLMEGIES

AUSTRALIA & SOUTH PACIFIC

DESTINATION SPECIALIST

I have always had a passion for travel so helping others make their travel dreams a reality is very exciting for me. After my first two years working as a travel agent, I had an opportunity to visit Australia. I immediately fell in love with everything about it. The following year I decided to move there and spent an incredible year living, working, and travelling throughout the whole country. I worked at a local travel agency in Melbourne and Cairns and put trips together for backpackers who wanted to explore the country. There is so much to see and do in the country and working as an agent was a great way to share my passion for it. I have returned several times since and there are always new things to see and activities to try. I have now been working in the travel industry sharing my passion for 20 years. My travels have also taken me to New Zealand, French Polynesia (Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, and Tikehau), Fiji, the Cook Islands, Bali, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan.

My favourite places

  • Whitsundays

    Australia & South Pacific

    I love visiting the Whitsundays. With 74 islands (only five inhabited) and surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef, there are so many ways to explore this region. Sailing through these stunning islands is certainly a very popular choice and can be done on a live aboard or just as a day trip. You can have an island getaway on one of the resort islands here or you can stay on the mainland in the quaint town of Airlie Beach and do day trips.

  • Bora Bora

    Australia & South Pacific

    There are not many places in the world you can wake up and dive off your balcony into the lagoon and swim with the fish. There is also plenty to do if you wish to get out and explore both by water and land. They have some great 4WD treks and hiking opportunities inland and on the water you can enjoy snorkelling, diving, feeding sting rays, parasailing, deep sea fishing, or take a romantic sunset cruise.

  • Queenstown

    Australia & South Pacific

    Queenstown is a beautiful alpine town and has something for everyone. It is located by Lake Wakatipu and the mountains and has the most impressive scenery which you can enjoy from water or land. You can dine in great restaurants, go shopping, relax in one of the many cozy pubs or get out to enjoy all the adventure the area offers. Everything from a 4WD adventure to jet-skiing or bungee jumping. There's a reason it's the adventure capital of New Zealand.

Did you know?

  • Extending your time in any given place will truly enhance your overall experience and make it that much more memorable.
  • Dress in light layers while travelling and pack accordingly. You can easily take off a sweater or grab a light jacket as the temperature changes.
  • A small group excursion will give you a more intimate and in-depth experience. It'll give you more appreciation for where you are and what you are seeing. A small group trip is worth every penny.
