WHO WE ARE
Travellers aspirations have certainly evolved over the past decades, from the simple beach holiday with family and friends, to group and private tailor-made travel that focuses on social, environmental and cultural awareness, in every corner of the world! Over the last thirty years working in and loving travel, we have been privileged to have travelled (to almost every nook and cranny) though out the world! From simple to luxury, ‘slow travel’ pleasures through to fast paced adventure and experiential travel – not to mention the trials and tribulations of modern day travel, we have experienced it all!
Of course our travel designers, all have their favourite destinations, sprouting their favourite hotels and insisting we eat at particular restaurants – but If Benalla Travel has one secret to share it’s the importance of the journey, from the excitement of the planning to the precise details we put in place in getting you there, with-out drama, stress and in the comfort your accustomed to!
In 2019 we are on the hunt for the most exciting, unique and interesting travel adventures which we want to share with you. Whether it’s up-to-the-moment travel information on new destinations and hotel openings or the latest travel news on all the old favourites, from what’s happening in art, design, architecture and culture to what chef’s are cooking where – we love keeping up with what’s [travel] hot. We hope our travel blog inspires you, as we wish to share our personal stories and experiences of fabulous hotels and award winning airlines, link you to our travel partners and create creative and innovative travel experiences for you. Anywhere and everything is possible!
