Kelly: Shark Cage Dive in SA because I love the ocean but I have to face my fears of sharks!

Sandy

What is your dream experience and why?

Sandy: My dream experience would be to swim with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef because I love adventure experiences and have always wanted to go to that part of Western Australia.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Sandy: My favourite place in Australia that I have visited so far has got to be Uluru, it is so magical and a destination I would recommend everyone to visit at least once in their life. Another destination I love that I would go back to again and again is Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays.

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Sandy: I’m passionate about travel and living life to the fullest by experiencing new things, so working at Experience Oz is rewarding because I’m part of the team that inspires people to get out there and experience some of the best destinations in the world.

Sheldon

What is your dream experience and why?

Sheldon: I’ve selected Queenstown Heli-Skiing as my dream experience. Flying in a helicopter to a portion of unridden, fresh powder and floating down a mountain on my snowboard sure sounds like a dream to me.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Sheldon: My favourite place to visit in Australia or New Zealand would have to be New Zealand’s South Island. It has absolutely unreal landscapes, unbelievably clear nights, beautiful Fjords and great snow. One of my travel highlights is hiring a beat up Ford Focus and driving from Christchurch along the western coastline down to Te Anau, stopping overnight at all the beautiful locations along the way.

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Sheldon: There are a number of things in life I love, one is travel and another is marketing. Experience Oz is the perfect mix of these two loves that glue together perfect with a great team and fun work environment.

Chloe

Office Wordsmith

Chloe

What is your dream experience and why?

Chloe: Queenstown in New Zealand is currently at the top of my travel bucket list. The region is known for its spectacular scenery and my dream experience is the Milford Sound Scenic Cruise with Coach and Flight from Queenstown. This land, sea and air package gives you the best vantage point to view the fjords from every angle and everyone that I have spoken to has told me that Milford Sound is so peaceful that visiting almost feels like a spiritual experience.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Chloe: Fitzroy Island near Cairns is a hugely underrated island destination in North Queensland. One of my fondest memories from a recent visit was snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef alongside sea turtles in the sheltered waters for what seemed like hours. These friendly sea critters were just as curious about me as I was of them and it is an experience I will never ever forget. The island also has a number of rainforest nature walks and the cheekily named ‘Nudey Beach’ is the epitome of a tropical paradise with crystal clear waters and plenty of sand to daydream or read a book under a shady palm tree. Best of all, it is rarely crowded and on my visit, I shared the small stretch of sand with only a handful of visitors. You can do a lot or nothing here and if you choose to stay longer than a day then there is accommodation to suit all budgets. Have I just given away my secret holiday spot?

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Chloe: This job combines both my passions of travel and writing and I feel so lucky to do what I do and work with such a great team. Every day is different and it so exciting to be one of the first to hear about all the new travel experiences in Australia and New Zealand. I have done a lot of travel abroad but Australia really does have a huge range of travel experiences and diverse landscapes whether you prefer a coastal location or a peaceful retreat in the wilderness. My bucket list is extraordinarily long and I’m always itching to get out of the office and review some of these experiences for you all.

Svenja

What is your dream experience and why?

Svenja: A scenic helicopter flight over Uluru, as I grew up with the model kind and have yet to visit Uluru.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Svenja: I loved Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays, the view from a seaplane is breathtaking. Cradle Mountain in Tasmania has to be my second choice and I can’t wait to go back.

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Svenja: Creating inspiration through photos and stories on socials and sharing them with everyone is what I was meant to be doing. Since I lost my heart in Australia (and on Social Media) it’s the perfect mix.

Evan @evanlendichdesign

The Video Guru

Evan

What is your dream experience and why?

Evan: My dream experience has to be swimming with Whale Sharks. It looks as great as it sounds (from seeing the footage) it really looks like a fun & must do experience.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Evan: My favourite destination to visit has to be Melbourne. The street art in the laneways has to be one of the best places to visit, though the interesting weather.

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Evan: The best part of my job is that not every day is the same. Working with different footage for each individual experience has to be the most amazing thing that I get to do. Storytelling extraordinary experiences through the format of visuals & audio.

What is your dream experience and why?

Coleen: Skydiving over Byron Bay – the view is breathtaking.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Chelsey

What is your dream experience and why?

Chelsey: Swim with Whale Sharks because I enjoy exploring the underwater world. I believe the feeling of being up close and personal to a large, peaceful and curious marine species would be surreal.

What is your favourite destination to visit in Australia or New Zealand?

Chelsey: My favourite destination to visit in Australia & New Zealand is the Whitsundays. My most recent trip to the Whitsundays left me in awe at the natural beauty of the region. I look forward to exploring more of Australia & New Zealand.

What makes your job at Experience Oz so special?

Chelsey: Experience Oz is a special place to work for various reasons, with a positive work environment and fabulous coworkers make arriving to work on a Monday morning a breeze, not to mention the bottomless lolly jar for that 3 pm pick me up.
