Oasis Travel was set up by Nick Page and Avril Carter, both of whom share a passion for travel and experiencing the true nature of a destination. Between them, they have over 30 years experience in the tour operator and hotel sector both in the UK and in Australia. Our head office is based in Peregian (15 mins drive from Noosa) on the beatiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
Prior to co-founding Oasis Travel, Nick worked with some of the UK’s most successful tour operators. He was responsible for the product selection, research and management of hundreds of key suppliers throughout Asia, Africa, South America, the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand.
Nick has traveled and worked in 5 continents; trekking in Nepal and India, teaching in Taiwan, on luxury safari in Southern Africa, hand-gliding over Rio and taking every opportunity that he could to experience as many of the countries in the world that he can. He studied South East Asian studies at university in the UK and completed a year of his studies in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.
Nick has learnt Thai language and often surprises locals with his understanding not only of the language but the history and culture of Thailand and South East Asia.
Prior to co-founding Oasis Travel Avril spent 3 years working in the luxury travel industry in London representing some of the most luxurious hotels & resorts around the world. Before this, Avril worked in the Australian travel industry for a major long-haul tour operator, and also worked on the opening team for the world’s first Versace hotel.
Avril has traveled to over 25 countries in the world, and recently spent time exploring Cambodia and Vietnam en route home from the UK where she saw the sun set over Angkor Wat and decided that she would be returning again and again to this very special and spiritual place.
