Meet Troy & Tina from The Aberdeen

Meet Troy & Tina from The Aberdeen

Troy and Tina are coming up to nearly 12 months as managers of the Aberdeen Motel, our property in Dubbo. 

Recently they told us “We love living in Dubbo, as the sun is always shining and the weather in general is amazing”. They originally come from Melbourne, so it’s pretty clear they’re not missing the weather! Not so sure about the AFL Footy though, as Troy is a mad Collingwood Magpies fan and Tina supports their arch rivals, the Carlton Blues.

Troy and Tina have managed the Aberdeen Motel, Dubbo since its refurbishment. Through this past year, they have supervised and overseen the property’s growth and are very proud of what they have been able to achieve. They love their regular guests.

Being avid travellers themselves, Troy and Tina enjoy meeting fellow explorers and hearing their stories of weird and wonderful people in exotic places. In their time-off they have made it to Europe, New Zealand, South Pacific Islands and different parts of Asia, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam with Myanmar their nest port-of-call.

And there’s an Asian influence in their recommendation to check out the amazing ‘Shoyoen’ Japanese Garden on your nest visit. But of course, their favourite destination in Dubbo is the stunning Western Plains Zoo.

Plan a Road Trip in Queensland this Autumn

Plan a Road Trip in Queensland this Autumn

As chilly Autumn looms, do you want that summer feeling to stay? Keep the cold weather at bay and get the wind in your hair with a Road Trip in Queensland.

Tourism and Events Queensland have put together an itinerary that covers a whole lot of diverse destinations along the Pacific Highway. While the highway runs 1700km from Cairns to Brisbane and has so many great things to see and do along the way, how could you go past the stunning Capricorn Coast area. Take a sub-tropical drive from Airlie Beach to Mackay, then head down past Rocky to the picturesque seaside town of Yeppoon. Next, it’s off to the historic sugar cane city of Bundaberg. Maybe then through the fruit farms to the towering coloured sands of Rainbow Beach!

Or if you’re looking to head on an inland adventure why not head to South Queensland and try the Warrego Highway – stretching from Brisbane to Birdsville it’s an easy drive that takes you all the way from the coast to the dessert with lots of interesting towns to visit along the way.
