Australia and New Zealand Travel Experts

Kathryn McCarthy

I have worked in the travel business for a long time now. I have travelled through Asia backpacking, staying in beach huts and now like a little bit of luxury!! I have also had a few funny & hairy experiences but all make a good story. There are some amazing hotels in Asia that are really good value too.

My favorite places are anywhere in Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, Sydney, Melbourne, Whitsunday’s and for amazing scenery you can't beat Queenstown in New Zealand.

If you require any information on Australia, New Zealand or Asia please do not hesitate to contact me on 01 804 7136 or

I started in the travel business 14 years ago and I have been working with Abbey Travel since 2006 in the long haul, Australia and Adventure Department.

I am very passionate about travel and being an Australian specialist I have visited most of the country in the past few years. I especially love Western Australia, as it has some of the most wonderful landscapes.

In Asia I have visited Thailand and Singapore and I have been in Argentina & Brazil, where the highlight had to be Iguazu Falls, one of the most overpowering natural wonders.

I have recently been to Tanzania and climbed Kilimanjaro, this was the most amazing and unforgettable experience I have had so far and for sure it won't be the last.

If you need any advice particularly on Australia please call me directly on 01 804 7181 or email

I have worked in travel for a total of 18 years so far… 11 years specialising in Italy and the last 7 years working in Abbey Travel in a number of areas, including Disneyland Paris, European holidays, South America, Australia & New Zealand.  I've been to quite a few places in Italy but would still go back for more, even though my waistline is always a bit bigger after each trip - it's worth it!

My top five destinations are Venice, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and for total peace, quiet and luxury Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia.

I've been in the travel industry for 17 years and have been with Abbey Travel for nearly 8 years in the Longhaul section mainly dealing with Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Adventure Travel. On my visit to Australia I really enjoyed Cairns and Melbourne. I have also travelled to Malaysia, Kenya, Tanzania and Nepal.  I would say my favourite place was probably Nepal.

I have been with Abbey Travel for 16 years in May - not long at all !!! During this time I have been specialising in holidays to Australia, New Zealand and long haul destinations ...

I have travelled all through Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Africa.  As I have been working in the longhaul department I have been lucky enough to have travelled to many wonderful destinations taking in some amazing sights. Paje Beach, Zanzibar in Tanzania being one of  the best beaches in the world, I can honestly say it is "a little bit of heaven on earth". Deserted white sand beaches and aqua blue water ...

Another one of my favourites is Thailand, it really is a place any age can go, I have been there as an  "Island hopper " seeking fun and excitement, and I have also gone recently with my hubby and 1 year old son. Both times I have loved it. It is full of great people and fantastic food, you always leave Thailand wanting to go back again.

Throughout my year long working holiday visa in Australia, I lived in Sydney for 10 months and travelled extensively throughout Australia for 3 months. Without trying to be too biased, Sydney is without doubt one of the most fabulous cities in Australia. Sydney has so many icons from the Opera House to Harbour Bridge surrounded by water. It truely is a picture postcard all the time... where else in the world can you can sit in front of the Opera House by the water and have the city skycrapers as its back drop?It's simply stunning !!!

I think you can take it that I have the travel bug and it makes my job a lot easier when I can advise and give information to my clients first hand on places a little further away from home that they wish to travel to. I believe informing clients honestly and finding the most cost effective ways to travel is the most important part of our jobs, I can safely say everyone here at Abbey Travel is doing just that!!!
