Patricia's love of gourmet food, fine wine and walking saw the birth of Wine & Food Lovers' trails — which offers group, private and flexible, tours of the stunning Victorian winery regions. The tours are sure to provide a memorable experience for any wine lover and outdoor enthusiast.
Besides this, Patricia has a passion for the bushland around Melbourne and can plan a hiking tour for travellers encompassing their interests.
Patricia is a member of the PTGAA (Professional Tour Guides Association of Australia) and is an expert events coordinator, having worked for many years as a corporate conference and exhibition organiser. Her experience as a leader of the Koonung Bushwalking Club and Ladybirds Outdoors Adventures means that you are in safe hands as you enjoy the picturesque scenery of the Victorian countryside. Patricia also speaks German fluently.
"Researching and planning itineraries has been an absolute pleasure. I have met so many talented locals and am so excited to be able to showcase the magnificent sites of Melbourne and regional Victoria to both visitors from overseas as well as the locals—who may not have experienced their own backyard this way ever before! Whether you choose to do a walking or a driving tour, I am sure that your day will be an experience you will remember forever. "
A Recent Review of this guide
Patricia was a wonderful host for our memorable 10-hour tour to Phillip Island. The Koala Sanctuary provided a close-up view of dozens of koalas in a nature setting. At the Sherwood restaurant for dinner, the seafood and drinks were excellent. The route to the Penguin Parade took us beyond the site and along the beautiful coastline view with wild wallabies all around. Patricia reserved VIP seating for us at the Penguin Parade where we saw hundreds of Little Penguins emerge from the sea and waddle inland.
