With our permanent office located just out of Naracoorte, we also have offices that are serviced regularly in both Millicent and Kingston. Our clients are based in this locality, but also in Canberra, Sydney, Darwin and Cairns.
Our team specialties are luxury travel, family adventures and wellness travel. We seek to bring the best experiences, coupled with our valued clientele’s unique needs, to fruition.
Naome has travelled widely; 27 countries during her time in the industry, and is supported wholeheartedly by a passionate team covering administration, marketing and documentation. We’ve covered all styles of travel – budget through to 6-star, cruising to adventure travel, singles tours to family holidays. Each booking favours Naome’s full attention, personally scrutinised, in conjunction with more than 22 years of industry and travel experience.
In the past year, Naome has experienced India, the Kimberley Region and the Christmas Markets of Europe on a river cruise.

Naome doesn’t have a passion for travel; her passion IS travel. Years of searching for a ‘hobby’ led her to the realisation that her work and her hobby is travel. It’s not only travelling for herself that she enjoys, don’t even try to stop her when she gets started passionately assisting you with your next holiday!

Bec joins the Argyle Travel and Cruise team with a passion for travel and loves exploring our beautiful country. She has recently travelled to the Northern Territory and has travelled extensively throughout Australia, including Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia.
Bec has traversed almost all of Australia; a self drive tour from the South East right through to Darwin, Kakadu, Litchfield, Uluru, Kings Canyon, along with touring through central NSW to QLD’s Capricorn Coast, Great Keppel Island, Fraser Island, Palm Cove and Fitzroy Island. In Tasmania, Bec has covered off all of the Eastern side of the island with plans to return for the west. Western Australia has been seen too including Margaret River to Perth and surrounding areas.
In recent years Bec has also travelled to Fiji, and she is excited to widen her travel expertise as soon as possible. Destinations on her bucket-list include Thailand, New Zealand and Japan.
Joining the travel industry has always been a dream of Bec’s. She studied travel in a tertiary sense post secondary school. She is excited to be on-board, and is eager to learn more about the current industry and all it has to offer. She comes to us with an extensive administration and sales background and is extremely motivated. She strives for perfection in everything she takes on.
Sophie is one of the newest members of Argyle Travel and Cruise and is extremely excited to begin a career in the ever-growing travel industry. Graduating with the class of 2019 at St. Martins Lutheran College in Mount Gambier, she has always had an interest in travelling, but never connected the dots of having a career surrounding her passion. Taking her first trip at 3-months-old, Sophie caught the travel bug at an early age and has been travelling ever since. Throughout her 18 years, she has experienced the national beauty of Australia, as well as the outstanding international countries of the United States of America, Vanuatu, Bali and more recently, New Zealand.
Sophie has an extensive list (we really do mean EXTENSIVE) of destinations on her bucket list, but her main hope in joining the team at Argyle Travel is to offer a new perspective to her generation surrounding the tourism industry. Through her eagerness to learn, she wants to encourage young people to travel and experience the world with the assistance of a travel agent.
Sophie is currently completing a full-time traineeship in tourism and has the ultimate goal of one day living abroad.
