Our Staff

Julie Avery - Managing Director

I began my career in the Travel Industry 30 years ago, as a Personal Assistant / Bookkeeper to Peter Korbel the founder of Brighton Travelworld. After 7 years I diversified and progressed to Consulting and Managing the business. In 1999 I purchased the company with business partner Keiran Cromie.

Now as a hands-on Managing Director I have a thorough understanding of business principles and a clear knowledge of my client’s requirements. 

I have an enviable track record in the Industry, having led the Agency to many Awards over the past 23 years together with personal awards for expertise in Consulting. I am committed to the team delivering our clients, quality of knowledge and experience, on time, and within their chosen budget. This is achieved by employing only A1 grade qualified and experienced Consultants who are trained to know nothing less than excellence, and will go to extraordinary lengths to achieve the best result for their clients. This is one of the major reasons for Brighton Travelworld’s rise to prominence as a Leader in the Travel Industry.

I keep in close touch with our ever changing Industry, following overseas trends and forecasts to keep us ahead of the competition. I am very proud of the team at Brighton Travelworld and the companies continued growth from a $5 million agency when purchasing the business in 1999 to an $12 million organisation currently, a great result considering the impact the Internet has had on many Agencies.
I love big cities, and have travelled extensively to all parts of the world many times over. I still find time to fundraise and support the local community, being a Past President of Brighton Beach Rotary, and PHF Sapphire.

I was also fortunate to win the Bayside Corporate Citizen award in 2007.


Amanda Robinson

It has now been over 7 years since I joined Brighton Travelworld and over 30 years since I started in the Travel Industry. It has never been boring and I can honestly say I still learn something everyday. I have always loved to travel and now with two teenagers it is like seeing old destinations through new eyes. I have a wealth of personal experience to share with my clients. I also enjoy the marvellous feedback we receive from our clients and their experiences.


I continue to enjoy challenging itinerary planning and find there is always something new to discover as a Travel Consultant. I have enjoyed getting to know Brighton Travelworld's many valued clients and assisting them with their travel plans.

I am an accredited Cruise Consultant with the International Cruise Council.



Lisa Wells

I have worked in the Travel Industry since leaving school 28 years ago, following in my fathers footsteps; he owned his own Travel Agency for 15 years in Bayside and my introduction to the Travel Industry was stamping brochures on a Saturday morning, so travel is definitely my passion.

I enjoy helping my clients planning and tailoring their trips whether it is for business or leisure. I have traveled extensively through Europe, Asia, USA, Africa, Carribean, South America, Pacific & Australia. I try to get away at least once a year to somewhere I haven't been before to update my knowledge and experience.

I have 2 children aged 15 & 12 years who are also "keen" travelers. I can't imagine working in any other industry and look forward to continuing the close relationship I have with my existing clients and meeting new clients to help make their "travel dreams" come true.

I am an accredited Cruise Consultant with the International Cruise Council and a Rail Tickets Expert Agent.

It was during my European travels as a teenager that I discovered my passion for travel, and decided to make it my career! Twenty years later, travel is still my passion and I am delighted to have joined the team at Brighton Travelworld.

I love helping clients with their travel arrangements, and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience in order to create the most wonderful holidays. Throughout my career I have worked in both Leisure and Business travel, and have also spent time specialising in airfares.

I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to each of the seven continents, with Europe and Antarctica being absolute highlights, followed closely by South America and the Maldives. My husband and two young children enjoy travelling as much as I do, and our recent trips have included Asia, Fiji and parts of Australia.


Keiran Cromie - Director

My involvement with travel began in 1999 when I purchased Brighton Travelworld with Julie Avery. I have always had a keen interest in travel and love to hear about some of the more exotic holidays which come to life within our office. I concentrate on Business Development, Technology IT, Marketing, and Administration, so my role is very much behind the scenes. 

As a Past President of Brighton Beach Rotary and a PHF, I maintain an interest in supporting local community organisations.

I have always lived in the area and feel that I have a good understanding of our clients needs.
