I met Eleanor at a networking event and it was perfect timing for me… [because] it filled me with dread thinking about all of the organising, the hassle, booking the flights, where we go, where’s the best place to stay… from the minute [Eleanor] started sharing with me what she does, I thought, you are the perfect person. All the hard work is done for you.
Families are under so much more pressure and time is a valuable commodity. Providing a full-service holiday development with enhanced features including each clients’ specific particulars, Eleanor manages all requirements in fine detail. With specific destination knowledge and handpicked services, ensures packages provide families with the “whole experience”. I’ve witnessed many changes in the travel and tourism industry over the past 25 years, it’s so lovely to see heart, passion…
I have always had the belief that if you do something, you do it will all your heart and make sure it is memorable. I am a stickler for detail, but I believe I have not only met my match but have found someone who has truly exceeded all my expectations. I met with Eleanor Chappell from The Family Travel Company back in July 2019 and showed her a few…
Eleanor from The Family Travel Company spoke at one of my women’s events, it was so well-received by the audience and myself! I have a trip coming up and felt so much better educated on health and safety while travelling particularly within WA itself, and the importance of being prepared. Thanks again Eleanor!

Authentic Local Culture, Food and Wildlife Experiences
Having worked in both hospitality and our amazing travel industry for so many years, over the last little while I have had a desire to change my business focus to providing clients with authentic local culture, food and wildlife experiences, or any combination of those, in various global locations. These experiences are in the four-star range, working with local operators able to deliver what the locals do, their wildlife options and where they go to eat (which does not necessarily mean the most expensive places, but rather some of the best food!)
Working with Eleanor and assisting her clients, is a privilege that I am looking forward to and I thank her for this opportunity.

Our Journeys are all Unique as are our Health Needs
I moved to Australia three years ago (with my now seven-year-old daughter and husband) from my home in England without ever having visited. Travel has always been an integral part of our lives. For us it represents a multitude of things: respite, education, exploration, fun, family time. An opportunity for new experiences and to create lasting memories.
Travel has brought so much joy to us initially as a couple and then as a family.
Our journeys are all unique, as are our health needs. And so should our healthcare.
I am Mum to Matthew (18), Emma (16), wife to Craig and human to Louie my wee bundle of fluff!
I began my business journey aged 23 and armed with a two-year-old. Laura’s Bookkeeping Services grew through word of mouth and by the time both kids were in full-time school I was ready (or so I thought I was) to hit the ground running and developed the business into Bizwize Business Solutions. And what a journey it has been!
Today, Bizwize is not the business it was when I ran it from my spare bedroom. It is operated by myself and my business partner, Michelle and we have a team of awesome bookkeepers. We support local and interstate (and even one international) businesses with Bookkeeping and Cloud Based Accounting Solutions. Having local staff and supporting local is a top priority!
Recharge, Reboot and Quality Time…
Since the kids were small we travelled as often as possible with them, whether it be a quick WA camping getaway or a South Asian Experience. Both myself and Craig run our own businesses so time away from our day-to-day life means time to recharge and reboot and most importantly quality time with our family. We love to learn about the cultures of the places we visit and get off the beaten track.
One of my favourite holiday moments was snorkeling in the Andaman Sea off Phuket when both the kids were little. They were so fascinated with all the sea creatures and were the last to get back on the boat. This year we are looking forward to travelling up the Coral Coast and exploring more of WA!
In my spare time I love coastal walks, coffee and wine with friends and family and researching holiday destinations
I am a Business Development Manager for Davey Real Estate, wife to Steve, and a fur mum to Henrey and Daisey.
I started real estate when I was 22. It has been a very successful 12 years winning awards such as Marketing, BDM awards and recently winning REIWA AWARDS of Excellence – taking out the BDM Award 2021.
LOVE DOWN TIME!
Our typical downtime revolves around the beach, cocktails and no technology. We love the typical Bali holiday however, my favourite holiday was when I jetted off on holiday to Greece for a month; it was bliss and so much fun.
In my spare time I love catching up with friends, usually for a sneaky champagne, but won’t say no if it’s a full strength coffee, a blissful walk along the coast, and I absolutely LOVE a great workout session at LACEYS Boxing Gym.
Hi I’m Bella, originally from London and moved over to Perth 18 years ago. I married my soulmate Graham and we have 2 teenage daughters Maddie and Meg.
My background is as a Personal Assistant but once I became a Mum my priorities changed so I became a stay at home mum. I loved it but missed having a challenge as well as helping people, so when I was given the opportunity to become involved with Arbonne, I decided to take a leap of faith and have never looked back.
Empowerment, Transparency and Sustainability
Arbonne is a vegan health and wellness company where it is all about having a holistic approach to beauty, health and wellbeing. As a company and a community their values of empowerment, transparency and sustainability are very important to me and as a certified B Corporation, we’re a purpose driven company committed to being accountable for our actions to the planet, through greener packaging and responsible operations.
Experiences that are Priceless
To me travel means being able to take time out of our busy lives and explore places with people we care about, have experiences that are priceless and create memories that last forever while building stronger relationships
When I am not building my business, taking care of my family or travelling the world I am walking my black Labrador, Bisley, playing poker with friends or chilling at home with a good non-fiction book.
My fixation to the travel industry transpired at an early age of 10 whilst on my first overseas flight.
Once out of Uni, I worked my way through the various facets of the industry from reservations to refunds, fares auditing to sales & marketing for airlines, travel agencies & travel management companies.
Business Owner to Cake Decorator
Finally after 20+ years of diverse experience, I decided to embark on a journey of operating my own corporate travel business. I thrive on the complexities in the travel industry & strongly believe SME’s could benefit immensely with having such a person on their side.
I’m all about making things work smoothly in the travel space from the onset to the very end of a trip & in turn making it worthwhile for me doing what I enjoy the most. That to me constitutes having a great travel experience.
When I don’t eat, sleep & breathe travel, I spend my time cake decorating or adding memories into my 2 daughters’ scrapbook from time to time (I started the project when they were born and plan to gift the finished book when they turn 18).
I am a qualified Business Lecturer, graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Master Practitioner of Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP).

I have been involved in many Industries over the past 40 years but one that has been my passion is Hairdressing, the other is Travel!
I have lived in Perth, West Australia for the past 30 years managing and owning my own businesses.
In 1979 I started my Career in Hairdressing in Los Angeles California where I lived for 5 Years which gave me an abundance of new experiences and yearning for adventure. Working in this industry has given me the opportunity to engage with people from all walks of life and gain a variety of experiences.
I have lived in 3 countries and visited over 16 to date but many destinations and cultures I have yet to experience.
For the past 6 years I have been the owner of Crown Salon ECU Joondalup WA. I am proud of the Brand we have established servicing local residents and the greater community for their Hairdressing and Beauty needs. Engaging with local businesses and events has been something I have always enjoyed.
Veni Vidi Vici
Creativity drives me … among many different career moves whilst still hairdressing one of these ventures is an online Apparel and Jewelry company Veni Vidi Vici Designs created in 2011 which my daughter and Fashion stylist in London still is promoting.
I also have interests in the Arts, Fashion, History, Lifestyle and Real Estate.
It is with great pleasure to join Eleanor and the FAMILY TRAVEL COMPANY as an Ambassador to support members and the community with their exciting travel experience.
