Meet the team

Brad Pearce (Owner)

Taking over the family business from my parents with my brother Craig is a great honour to me.

Travel is in my blood and working in travel since 1995 has allowed me to travel to most parts of the world.

Passing on my travel experiences and knowledge to our customers allows me to help make their next holiday memorable for all the right reasons.

At Figtree Travel it’s our goal to make sure you have received great service, the best advice and find the best deal!

I don’t have a favourite destination as each place has its unique highlights and experiences, but I can’t go past an African overland Safari, seeing the Pyramids of Giza and taking in the beauty and history of Machu Picchu in Peru

Craig Pearce (Owner)

Figtree Travel has been owned by our family since 1989.

My journey began when I joined the team in 1993 and my brother Brad and I have been managing the business since taking over from our parents in 2011.

In that time countries visited include USA, Africa, Ireland, England, most of Europe including Scandinavia, United Arab Emirates, India, China, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bali, New Zealand and all of Australia.

My Favourite destination would be Scandinavia, due to the friendly people and the amazing scenery.

With my experiences and knowledge that I have gained in my travels, I look forward to helping you plan your next journey.

Terri Garside

Hi, my name is Terri and I have been a Travel Consultant with Figtree Travel since 1989. I began my career way back when I was in Year 10 as a 16-year-old needing to complete work experience as part of my studies. I was very lucky enough to be given the opportunity as this ultimately led to a full time position at the conclusion of completing my HSC in Year 12.

I have travelled extensively in this time to many parts of the globe including Europe, UK, USA, Thailand. Hong Kong, Bali, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vanuatu, Fiji, New Zealand, Tahiti, New Caledonia, all throughout Australia and many cruises. If I had to choose a favourite destination it would be Disneyland in California USA.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my career to date in the Travel Industry and continue to thrive to fulfil my clients travel needs and dreams……it is a very rewarding Job.

Katrin Pearce

Hi my name is Katrin, I have been a full time consultant for 4 years, but have worked in the industry for 10 years overall. My father owns his own agency in Sydney which is were I started my career.
I have travelled to Germany many at times to visit relatives but holidayed to beautiful France, Croatia, Italy, Switzerland, America, Thailand, Bali & closer to home Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Tasmania, Melbourne, Darwin, Sunshine Coast, Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Magnetic Island & the Gold Coast. I have only cruised the once but I have done extensive courses and am a accredited International Cruise Council member.
It is very hard to choose a favourite destination but because of my European history I would have to say Europe as a whole, each place has such extensive history & has it’s own personal touch, every country I have visited has truly amazed me.

Kathy Georgiou

Hi, my name is Kathy Georgiou and I joined Figtree Travel in 1981.

I am so lucky to work in an industry I love and to have had the opportunity to visit

Some wonderful places.  Some of these include Europe, America, South America, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Maldives, Singapore, Bali, Vietnam, Hawaii, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Australia.

My favourite destination is Europe with its history and culture.  Everything is so accessible.
You can drive the UK, Cruise Scandinavia and Russia, Rail or Coach Central Europe or maybe

A River Cruise is more your style then Island Hop the Greek Islands or Sail Croatia before heading home.

I would only be so happy to work with you in planning your next getaway or trip of a lifetime.

Liesel Brown

I started in the Travel Industry in 1981. I love meeting and helping people organise their own holidays to their favourite and new destinations.

I love that no two holidays are the same and I learn something with every booking.

I enjoy travelling to all destinations but love Europe as a destination. The history the architecture and the cuisine of each country just adds to the excitement of being there.

I look forward to meeting and helping new clients and existing clients plan their holidays.
