Alisha Harpley

Alisha loves a laugh and is always cracking up the office with her puns and ‘dad jokes!’ After travelling extensively through-out Australia, this year Alisha will be heading overseas for the first time and cannot wait. Her favourite Footy Trips destination is Cairns – you’ll find her in the beer garden at Gilligan’s with a cold beer in hand.


Deb Lawrence

Deb is our little Scottish gem, she moved to Australia 5 years ago and hasn’t looked back! As well as keeping fit, spending time with her friends and family and travelling, Deb also loves to party, so it’s no surprise that Gilligan’s in Cairns is her favourite Footy Trips hot spot.


Dominique Mills

Group Travel Consultant

Dom grew up in Sydney and after spending a couple of snow seasons away from home she decided that the sunny Gold Coast was the perfect place to settle down… for now! Her favourite travel destination would definitely be somewhere in South East Asia – she can’t go past the chilled culture, beautiful beaches and cheap drinks!

Johanna has recently relocated to the sunny Gold Coast from Newcastle and has a passion for tourism and travel.

When she’s not at work you’ll find Jo exploring nature, going on beach adventures and seeing as much live music as possible.


Lucinda Atkinson

Senior Group Travel Consultant

You won’t find Lucinda at the bar because she doesn’t drink, but she’s the life of the party – either showing us her crazy dance moves or keeping the teams laughing until sunrise. Lucinda grew up on the Sunshine Coast so she loves the beach and sunshine, her favourite place to travel is definitely Hawaii.
