Kiwis with a passion for history, Melinda Loe and Hohepa Ruhe made the move to Fishermans Paradise when they found it increasingly difficult to leave their holiday home and head back to Sydney.
They were about to turn 50, and hoped to fulfill a lifelong dream of starting their own business.
With a background working in museums in both New Zealand and Australia, the dynamic duo decided to let their love of storytelling shine.
Their business – Kotahi Tourism – unites their passion for culture, history and the environment, providing guided tours in Sydney, Lake Conjola and Narooma.
At Lake Conjola, they provide walking tours that explore the built and natural history of the area.
As a way to provide essential support to those affected by bushfires which continue to threaten civilians and their homes across Australia, Oaks Hotels, Resorts & Suites has announced that selected properties nationwide will offer complimentary rooms for up to seven days for those who have lost their homes.
The offer is redeemable from now until the end of June 2020.
