A recent 3-day famil in Australia’s Northern Territory, experiencing Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, was a fabulous opportunity for a group of 20 TravelManagers’ Personal Travel Managers (PTMs).
Hosted by Marcel Mafli, National Sales Coordinator for AAT Kings, the participating consultants included NSW-based PTMs Alma Araullo, Dana Brown, Lana Kanchik, Michelle Schulze, Tanya Tyler, Teresa Reyes; Bev Fitzsimons, Sharon Wright, Nicole Edgar, Luky Wilson, Daniel Price from Victoria; Queensland based PTMs Timo Bohlender, Simon Tinkler, Sarah Harington, Kylie Gretener, Deborah Davies, Cassandra Zayonce; WA PTMs Kathy Millett and Carolynne Cannon, and John LaBella from South Australia.
For Dana Brown, representative for Moonee Beach, the Top End experienced didn’t disappoint.
“Experiencing Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks has reminded me of how beautiful Australia is and how passionate I am about our country. I love outback Australia, and this famil provided the perfect opportunity to taste a little bit of it. I certainly wasn’t disappointed,” said Dana Brown, representative for Moonee Beach, NSW.
“I had an expectation that these parks would be beautiful but the scenery and history blew me away. I highly recommend however that any clients travelling in this region do so as part of a group like AAT Kings. Not only do they cover all areas of interest, their guides knowledge and expertise will turn your holiday into a once in a life time experience that you will treasure forever, it’s a trip that you could not emulate on your own.”
Nicole Edgar said she found it difficult to choose a single highlight from the adventure.
“The Yellow Water Billabong Cruise in Kakadu National Park was a real highlight. Being that close to saltwater crocodiles that you could literally touch them (but wouldn’t dare to) was an amazing experience. Exploring the sacred Aboriginal areas of Arnhem Land was another highlight, as very few people get permission to access it. And it’s always been on my bucket list to swim under a waterfall, and I got my dream, swimming under many different waterfalls in Litchfield National Park.”
For Kathy Millett, the high spot was a visit to the World Heritage-listed Ubirr, in Kakadu.
“Climbing up through the ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries which are believed to be 20,000 years old was such a wonderful experience. The view from the lookout over the surrounding wetlands was truly magical.”
