What exciting things are you currently working on?
We have recently launched APT’s Australian Private Jet Air Touring program. It is such a unique way to see Australia and take in so many key highlights in 8 or 9 days, that would normally take you weeks by any other mode of transport. So for guests who want to explore more of our country, while international travel remains paused, and want to get in as much of it as possible in a short period of time, APT’s Australian Air Touring is the perfect offering.
Why APT?
I enjoy the great culture and people who work here, plus the amazing product offering we have. Covering so much of the world, across our various brands with so many modes of travel  be it river, ocean or expedition cruising; coach touring; four-wheel drive adventures going off the beaten track; guided walking tours and Private Jet Air Tours, there is always something new on the horizon.
What sets APT apart? 
APT is Australian, family-owned and headquartered in Melbourne, with a 95-year heritage, and despite challenges throughout the years, has remained true to its core – innovating and delivering exceptional experiences to guests all over the world.

What destination is ‘calling’ you?
It has to be Croatia. Having spent Melbourne winter in lockdown, dreaming of a coastal cruise aboard APT’s newest ship in Croatia that is the destination calling me the loudest. But Kimberley is a close second. Its remoteness, rugged beauty together with unparalleled colour contrasts of burning sunsets, red earth and turquoise sea is an experience everyone needs in 2021.
