My name is Sue Cousin and I am in my first year as a Travel Consultant at 5 Oceans Travel in Drouin Victoria. I first realized my passion for the travel industry in 2010 when I planned a trip to Fiji for our family. In 2012 I planned a USA trip and enjoyed it so much I decided to embark (as a mature age student) on a 2 year course with Open Colleges and in July 2014 became a qualified travel consultant. Whilst qualified however I continued to work in my role as Human Resource/Payroll Manager until February 2019 when finally the opportunity became available at 5 Oceans Travel.
Other overseas trips I have taken is a second USA trip where I spent 2 months travelling the West and East Coast USA. I have also travelled both North and South Islands of New Zealand. Whilst at 5 Oceans I have been on 2 Wide Eyed Tour Famil’s, Vietnam in May and Thailand in September.
I have extensively travelled the East coast of Australia by road from Cooktown to Hobart and all in between. I have also been to Adelaide and Perth. I have travelled up the centre of Australia to Alice Springs, Uluru, Kings Canyon etc.
I hope to travel a lot more in the future
