Hi! I’m Tara and I’ve been selling (and travelling) the world for what seems like forever, having worked for over 10 years for large retail travel agencies and smaller niche wholesalers alike, both in Australia and abroad. My years of working in the travel industry led me to the realisation that if you didn’t fit the norm of the mass traveller then the doors of some destinations felt closed to you. So I got thinking, how could I offer trips to those who didn’t quite match the brochure photo? I wanted to enable people to share their interests & passions with others, whilst enjoying a new holiday destination, by offering themed, small group trips.
And so Travel & Tonic was born! Travelling has always been my tonic, my remedy for the stresses that can creep in to our ‘everyday’ … if your mind jumped straight to thinking the name was related to a Gin & Tonic well that’s fine by me too as many a brilliant plan has been conceived over a shared G&T somewhere in the world!
Our passions are often our tonic so combining them with a holiday is a perfect fit!
Travel & Tonic is an independent travel agency & not affiliated with any particular hotel chain, ensuring our holiday itineraries are created to offer the best possible experience, not for kickbacks! We align ourselves with local partners who share the same vision as us, working closely together to give you an authentic and extraordinary holiday. Our experience & connections in the industry allow us access to the best possible deals in the market.
We are an Australian owned and operated travel company and all prices on our website are in Australian dollars.
We’re constantly rethinking and reshaping the way we like to travel and we’d love to hear from you to help you change your travel horizons.
