What you'll do

Join me on a tour of Townsville where I will unlock the secrets of this place, and introduce you to what life is like in this wonderful part of Australia.

For 2 hours, I will give you answers to all your 'how do I' and 'where do I' questions.

I will give you the inside scoop on Townsville's housing suburbs, educational facilities, healthcare and medical facilities. I will give you an overview of what Townsville has to offer regards professional networking opportunities, community facebook groups and local media channels. I will connect you with locals who can help with the practical aspects of setting up home here (from friendly real estate agents and tradies, to au pairs).

I will accompany you on a tour of second hand boutique shops, to fabulous hairdressers, unique places to get a coffee (or a cocktail), to the best places to relax, explore nature, go to the gym or try out recreational clubs.

I am independent, and receive no kick backs from anyone. I just love showcasing all the local talent and brilliance one can find in this city.

This is your 'fast-track' to getting to know Townsville, making for a more settled, fun and easy transition into life here.

Other things to note - when you reach out, you’ll complete a short online questionnaire to discuss your interests

Having relocated 6 times (Singapore, London, Manila, Sydney, Canberra and Townsville), I understand first hand the pressure of arriving in a new city, with family in tow, a new job to start and a new home to find.

I have a professional background in project management and community engagement, and personal experience of shortlisting suburbs, property inspections and schools. I am a natural networker, and love discovering that 'unique cultural experience'.

I am an Airbnb super-host, Hosting Masterclass graduate, and Airbnb Regional Community Leader.

I am Mum to 3 boys, a part-time MBA student and small business owner.

I had a great morning with Louise as she addressed all of my queries and concerns regarding moving to Townsville. It was great to have a friendly face who had the local knowledge and time to spend with me. She has also offered support once I get closer to the move. I recommend her very highly

Louise showed me sides to Townsville that would have taken me a year or more to figure out for myself. She made me feel so welcome and that I might actually be able to carve out both a fun and fulfilling niche for myself here. She really personalised my experience to the areas that interest me.. she has really been so thoughtful. I really really recommend this tour. Thank you!! 🙏

Highly recommended! Louise takes immense care to make this trip as personal as possible with frequent contact and questions about what you're looking for, what you might need and where you might set up. Her extensive personal and professional network ensure that, whatever you're looking for, you would have the opportunity of gaining a personal introduction to it. Highly personable, she makes you feel comfortable straight off the bat. It's like going out exploring with a friend. Going above and beyond to organise open house viewings and even taking you out to see places you might not have known you needed to know about and adding to experiences and necessities all around. This service is the only one of its kind we've ever come across and will make a definite difference to anyone looking to relocate in this area.
