Tash Melhuish 

I have had a passion for travel for as long as I can remember.  My parents opened their travel in Salamander Bay when I was only 10 months old and I have always been involved & excited about the travel industry

Growing up I travelled to the UK, LA, Hong Kong with Disneyland, Shanghai and Fiji. We also cruised through the Mexican Riviera, The Pacific Islands, Hawaii to Sydney via Tahiti, and from Sydney to Perth.

I began working full time at Holiday World when I finished High School in 2013 and since then I have been encouraged to pursue my travels dreams. Here are a few of the adventures I have taken:

In 2012, I took off on a 2 months European adventure taking in the sights of Italy, France, Monaco and Spain with Contiki followed by 2 weeks experiencing Sweden’s Winter with – 20C temperatures, then time in the UK visiting London, Bath & Liverpool & Cardiff, Wales.

In 2013, I had the opportunity to experience a European River Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel aboard the Amadaus Princess through work as well as a short cruise on the Pacific Jewel.

In 2014, On the way to Europe I spend a couple of days in Dubai to see the beautiful buildings & joined a Greek Island Tour with Contiki, exploring the amazing Islands of Ios, Mykonos & Santorini. To date Greece is one of my favourite destinations! I then headed to Sweden to celebrate Swedish Midsommer with friends and learnt about how they celebrate in the midnight sun.
In September I traveled to Chile, Ecuador, Galapagos Islands & Peru with Scenic Tours for work and what a highlight it was – One of my favourite trips I have been able to take!

In 2015, My mum and I travelled to India for the Holi Colour Festival and explored Delhi, Agra & The Taj Mahal, Varanasi, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Puskhar & Udaipur. We then spend 3 days in Singapore and stayed at the beautiful Marina Bay Sands.
In July I took off on a 5 month adventure starting on a Trafalgar Tour through Denmark, Norway & Sweden with my family. After this I joined a Croatia Sailing holiday with Contiki and then drove up through Plitvace Lakes National Park into to Northern Croatia before spending a few months in the UK.  While there I traveled to Canada for work to experience the Rocky Mountaineer and the beautiful Canadian Rocky’s before returning to Europe to joined another Contiki tour through London, Paris, Lucerne in Switzerland, Venice, Innsbruck in Austria, Munich & Amsterdam.

In 2016, I spent 2 weeks in May travelling through Northern & Central Vietnam with Wide Eyed Tours and went to Halong Bay, Hanoi, Sapa, Hue and Hoi An. In October I won an incentive that sent me to Palm Springs & Huntington Beach in California then later in October I drove from Auckland to Wellington in the North Islands of New Zealand with my boyfriend.

In 2017, I took an escorted group of 17 clients from Port Stephens through the Canada Rockies, Cruising through the Inside Passage on the Coral Princess and into Alaska with Evergreen Tours.
Later in the year I have a personal trip booked with Topdeck through Budapest, Prague, Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris then flying into Iceland to try and see the Northern Lights.

In 2018, I escorted a group to Vietnam & Cambodia on a Mekong River Cruise which was a wonderful success and took a quick trip to Hong Kong to enjoy the culture and food delights.
