OUR STORY SO FAR ……..

Pacific Downunder established in Switzerland as a destination marketing and product representation firm by the Haslop family in 1996. As the company grew in 2001 we created Australian Pacific Lodges, which became the owner of Mungumby Lodge and the 100 acre nature refuge it sits within. In 2019 we created Real Estate Downunder a Realtor of Tourism Assets. We are driven to create outcomes in four key areas that deliver results.

Tourism marketing, Tourism management,
Tourism development, Tourism distribution.

The mighty True North by North Star Cruises Australia

The explosion of global tourism together with the ever changing face of international globalised business, emergence of new markets and changes in global economies ensures that tourism operators must fine tune their organisations in shape for the demands of a changing tourism market.

Over the past 20 years both Australia and New Zealand have gained global exposure from major sporting events, high profile films and economic strength, each which have gained world attention, unprecedented in South Pacific terms. These events and new global order have served to complement existing travelling population with differing motivations.

In key Western European markets & North America there are huge challenges that effect both the travel industry and the travelling public. However whilst both markets remain strong they are now challenged by the emergence of new Eastern markets and the sheer numbers they represent.
