James, Australia and New Zealand Specialist

After finishing University in Cardiff James decided to head off and see the world. He bought a one-way ticket to Sydney stopping in French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Fiji and New Zealand.

A month long self-drive round New Zealand, taking in both islands and many major sights, gave James the bug for road trips. Once in Australia he set out to drive from Sydney to Perth and back again, and took in every state and territory on the way. The journey took in many of Australia's natural and urban wonders such as Melbourne, the Great Ocean Road, Perth, Uluru, the Great Barrier Reef and many more of the mainland highlights, whilst also including a trip across the Bass Strait to the state of Tasmania.

Once back in the UK James pursued a career in travel with a major UK travel agent, continuing to travel whilst he worked. He joined Audley as an Australia and New Zealand Specialist to concentrate on his main passion in that of travel. In his spare time James enjoys running and taking every opportunity to get away with his family in their campervan.

Karijini Eco Retreat

I recommend visiting - Karijini

The Karijini National Park gives you a feeling of total isolation. Spending the days walking through deep gorges with the occasional swimming hole and watching the sun go down over the glowing red Hamersley Ranges mountains is a truly magical experience.

I'll never forget when…

Watching the sealions and penguins at Sandfly Bay on the Otago Peninsula, New Zealand. After making our way through the sand dunes, to avoid meeting the sealions face to face on the beach, we spent an hour observing the penguins making their way up the beach one by one.
