Katie Holmes

Travel Designer

I first went to Australia on a family holiday aged 17, and fell in love with the golden beaches and laid-back lifestyle. I went to New Zealand a few years later, and ended up staying for four years! I love travelling and have been to some amazing countries but, in my opinion, there is nowhere more special than New Zealand. From the indigenous culture of the North Island to the wild beauty of the South Island, there really is something to suit every traveller. One of my favourite memories is kayaking in the Abel Tasman National Park and having a seal pup playing around my kayak.

I have also been lucky enough to travel to Australia and the Pacific Islands many times, both from New Zealand and the UK. I absolutely love the Hunter Valley wine region just outside Sydney, and snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef truly is an experience of a lifetime. Australia and New Zealand have some wonderful lodges in stunning locations, giving you the chance to get right up close to the local wildlife and scenery.

Ask me about walking tracks in New Zealand, visiting Uluru and swimming with seals and dolphins in Kaikoura.
