Kia Ora, hello, I have been living in Queenstown since January 2018, however my attachment to Queenstown started over 15 years back on my first visit here while I was working with Tourism New Zealand. Autumn is my favourite time of the year when everything around town turns green and gold! I love the trails around town and try to get out on walks with my three year old son as often as I can. Please do feel free contact me for any information you need about Queenstown for your clients.

As a born-and-bred proud Kiwi living in Melbourne, I consider myself truly blessed to represent the most spectacular part of NZ. Although I travel to Queenstown many times each year, flying in over the Southern Alps and experiencing the extraordinary sight of the Remarkables, Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding countryside from the air never fails to take my breath away, whatever time of year. This is something everyone should experience in their lifetime. I would love to assist with making this a reality so please contact me for help with your event.

Creating unforgettable, unique experiences, and sharing them with others is what gets me out of bed in the morning. Originally from Dunedin, Queenstown was always a favourite holiday destination and once Queenstown gets under your skin, it’s hard to stay away! Some days you’ll find me exploring a new walking track, while others I’ll be reading by the lake or enjoying a long lunch at new eatery with friends. No two days are the same, and every day in Queenstown can be unforgettable. I look forward to helping you create your dream event so please be in touch.

I came to New Zealand in 2016 and fell in love with Queenstown straight away. I am grateful to be surrounded by lakes and the mountains every day and to have the ability to call Queenstown home. What I love about this town is that it has something to offer for everyone. I like exploring our beautiful backyard, riding the many bike trails, and enjoying dinners with a lake view. If you would like to find out more about Queenstown and its surrounding areas, please feel free to get in touch.
