My name is Anne, I am your personal Travel Counsellor based in Lakes Entrance, the heart of the Gippsland Lakes.
Born and raised in Germany by a family of travellers, I was always destined to become a passionate explorer. After living and travelling around the world, a new path led me to Australia where I now call beautiful East Gippsland home.
Before joining Travel Counsellors, I worked as a professional in leisure and corporate travel over 12 years and across 3 continents. From creating corporate events for some of the biggest companies in the world like BMW, ITV Studios and Lenovo, to hand-crafting bespoke holidays within Europe and Southern Africa, to working as consultant for Lufthansa, I truly love what I do.
Though there are so many places to love in this beautiful world, my heart lies in South Africa. Even after living there for many years, the breathtaking nature, diversity of the people and heritage of one of the oldest cultures in the world never ceases to amaze me.
My international industry background, paired with my love for travelling, are the essential ingredients to bring your vision of an unforgettable travel experience to life. By taking time to listen and understand your personal requirements, I will look after you with absolute care, high standards and great attention to detail. Every holiday is as individual and unique as you.
Packed with a life full of experiences, wonderful encounters and many adventures, we can create everlasting memories together. I look forward to sharing the beauty of travelling with you.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...

Have you ever been to Cairns and its surroundings? It’s an amazing spot to unwind and soak up the tropics of Australia. Originally from Germany and having lived in Victoria for the past 3.5 years, I had always pictured Australia with this white sandy beaches, clear blue waters and lush tropical vegetation and there is nothing short of that in North Queensland. After a weekend attending our inspiring annual Travel Counsellors Conference, it was time for some family fun. A must on our list was the Daintree Rainforest, which is a 2-hour drive from Cairns. We took the scenic route...

Anne, is extremely patient, she listens to everything I have to say and takes it on board. I never feel rushed when dealing with Anne. She is very knowledgeable. Anne is a mixture of Friend, Personal Travel assistant, Expert Agent. I am hoping Anne sticks around to help me with all my travel adventures and then to carry on and help my children with their adventures.

I am very pleased to have been recommended Anne by a mutual friend. Actually the timing couldn’t have been better due to our upcoming travel ideas. As a family we’ve met with Anne during our holiday planning process and Anne has kept up informed all the way. It was really convenient that Anne could meet us after hours at our home. We had a pretty specific request with part of our trip which included our 13 year old daughter being at the Greek Islands snorkelling - on her birthday next year. Anne found the ideal location for this and our daughter is really excited that this could be planned - just for her! Exceptional service, efficient, excellent communicator, personable, flexible and just a very lovely person. Thank you so much Anne.

Anne was fantastic to work with, we are not experienced travelers and we had many many questions which she was more than happy to answer each and every one of them. She certainly helped us make decisions and work our way through the maze of what to do and consider when planning a trip overseas.

Anne understood my needs around finding the best travel deal and flights that suited me. It was easy to make the choices and my bookings were seamless. I have travelled extensively, sometimes I had booked my own itineraries. It was great to let Anne find what was best for me on this trip.

Anne's professionalism has been world class. I'm so glad I've met her through the local BNI chapter. I am so impressed with the detail in her booking information, the options provided and follow up. I have been proactively advocating for her to my family and friends and am a true advocate. Thanks again Anne : )
