Meet our Team

Julie Avery – Managing Director

I began my career in the Travel Industry over 35 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 clients’ requirements.

I have an enviable track record in the industry, having led the Agency to many awards over the past 28 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 Senior Consultants who are trained to achieve 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 company’s continued growth from a $5 million agency when purchasing the business in 1999 to a $17 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 current member and President of Brighton Rotary, and PHF Ruby.

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

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 spent 30 years in the Information Technology industry mainly as an IT Manager for various local councils, and as a consultant in my own IT business. Consequently, I concentrate on Business Development, Technology IT, Marketing and Administration, so I’m very much behind the scenes.

I maintain a strong interest in supporting local community organisations and I’m a Past President, PHF, and current member of Brighton Rotary. Bike riding from Hampton is my passion so I enjoy taking BTW groups away on tour.

I grew up and live locally so I feel that I have a good understanding of our clients’ needs.

Amanda Robinson – Senior Consultant

It has now been over 15 years since I joined Brighton Travelworld and over 35 years since I started in the Travel Industry. It has never been boring and I can honestly say I still learn something every day. 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 marvelous feedback we receive from our clients about 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
