Meet our travel experts


G’day. My name is Vanessa, an Aussie living in Europe. Growing up in Australia was easy-going. Islands were my backyard, koalas lived across the road and distance was never considered an issue.

"Australia is truly a special part of the world. And I am very proud to call Australia home."

As part of the marketing team, you will find me mostly writing content. I love writing about my home country and sharing all of my local knowledge with A Journey DownUnder clients.

After spending most of my 20’s travelling the world, I knew that the 'A Journey DownUnder' style of travel is exactly the same way, I choose to travel. That’s why I am passionate about sharing this with others.

Travelling away from the mainstream. Meeting the locals and getting to know their way of life. Taking it slow, instead of blasting past to tick off all of the highlights. Discovering the real gems of the country.

All the things you love

and none of the things you don't
