Hi, I’m Ann-Maree.
I’ve been involved in the tourism/travel industry since 2001, I grew up in the Byron Bay area and now reside in the gorgeous town of Ballina.
While having worked extensively around Australia in some of the most popular tourist destinations I had the opportunity to explore the rest of the world.
This cultivated my love of travel and once I did travel – the experience was life changing and possibly not in the way everyone assumes – my experience had me come back from a 10 week trip and take 6 months to get over.
This made me the travel manager I am today – I think of the things that we may overlook – become particular but open to possibilities, think safety and security while making the most of every opportunity.
I love to plan out and manage all kinds of travel – My own personal interests are to experience the cultures and cuisines from all over the world.
Doing it first hand, I always make the effort to experience both when I travel throughout my adventures.
Travel doesn’t have to be a huge adventure overseas it could be exploring your own backyard with an unexpected twist.
I think out of the box for solutions and anticipate your needs for your travel, from family holidays and work commitments to major life changing adventures
I will give you the service and support you need to make it happen.
Lets meet to get your travel started, you can email me at AnnMaree.Bardell@travelmanagers.com.au or call me on 0424 191 842.
I have an absolute love and respect for all the countries I’ve visited but my favorite has been Borneo Malaysia – don’t know why but loved the feel of the country and the people. From the lush rainforests to the unbelievably beautiful beaches with their clear turquoise waters to the the desolate barren mountain peaks through the clouds. Travelling down the rivers on motorized canoes and stopping to find a longhouse for lunch and a hidden waterfalls are some of the memories I cherish in this gorgeous country.
Ecuador is a close second as the culture is so amazing and the food is delicious! I saw cloud covered mountains, stone buildings thousands of years old, border crossings that made me realize how amazing my home country was, Valleys of such abundance and serenity that i didn’t want to leave.
Every country has a reason to visit, an experience that will make you love or hate it. I’m lucky that the countries I’ve seen and the cultures I’ve experienced have made me want more.
I work with you to book all your travel – tell me where you need to go, and I’ll make it happen.
