A shiny new travel agency opened its doors last week, a move that completely disproves the digital world’s theory that online bookings are taking over the travel industry.

Join us in popping a bottle of champers and welcoming to the retail world, the Travel Agents over at Helloworld Travel Tuggerah.


The store officially opened last Thursday and rumours (made up by KARRYON) are, Owner Chantelle Woods was seen dancing the night away with Mickey and Minnie Mouse while wearing a party hat.


JOKES! Although Mickey and Minnie did actually make an appearance at the opening along with preferred supplies and local residents.

Helloworld Travel Tuggerah is a big achievement not only for traditional consultants but for Woods who also has a second agency, Helloworld Travel Lisarow, which she purchased almost a decade ago.

Speaking at the opening, Woods celebrated her success and attributed much of it to the support of her family and staff.


“I have been in the industry for over 13 years, and I have always wanted to own my own travel agency. Now I am the happy owner of two, and this is just the start.”

Joining Woods at the agency is her Assistant Manager Tara Fenning.
