Argyle Travel and Cruise is a bespoke travel service, established by owner/manager, Naome Burdon, on 01 September 2000. Servicing the lower south east of South Australia; Millicent, Penola, Kingston, Robe and Beachport, locally and all of Australia.
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. It is these experiences that ensure you receive the most current advice and personal recommendations for your travel. Other destinations experienced include the UK and western Europe, Mauritius, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hawaii, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, nearly all of Australia, Fiji, New Caledonia, the Cook Islands, Samoa, Hong Kong, Dubai and Qatar!
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!

Yet another Sophie to add to the team. Sophie Longbottom is another new one to Argyle Travel and Cruise. Previously doing a small stint in the travel industry in her younger years, she went to explore a new lifestyle on the West Coast of South Australia and made her way into the hospitality industry. Now, back in her home town she has happily found her way back into travel again and pouring beers to the locals as well.
Beginning her overseas adventures at the age of 5, she has always been passionate about travel and it just grows stronger as the years go on. Her main areas of travel revolve around Asia – Indonesia and Malaysia. As well as Vanuatu and a 6 week trip around Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia and Peru. Her newest love is travelling around Australia and seeing what our own country has to offer after years of mainly travelling overseas. Recently returning from a self drive trip around Tasmania.
Just like the other Sophie, her bucket list is tricky to write down in one paragraph. The 5 year plan consists of Greek Island Hopping, a self drive trip to the top of Australia, New Zealand and exploring Byron Bay.
Sophie hopes to inspire others to travel anywhere in the world and to never be restricted in your travel goals. To always be positive and to take every new adventure and turn as a blessing.
