It was Jack Kerouac that once wrote, "There was nowhere to go but everywhere." Travel is one of life's true, unspoiled joys where the experience doesn't simply end with the departure. If seeing the world and inspiring others to do the same is a passion of yours then a career in travel and tourism is your ticket to the rest of the globe. For no one that has worked a job they love has truly worked a day in their life.

Pictures may fade but memories are timeless, and a career as travel consultant, tour operator or airport grounds crew can help people tick off those important bucket list items.

From twentysomethings to families and retirees, travel is forever enticing to any age bracket. At Holmesglen, we provide a supportive environment where you're equipped with the essential skills to enter the field as confident graduates. We are a staple within the industry having been inducted in to the Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame.

Our study environment boasts a simulated travel office and utilises current industry software including Amadeus and Galileo. Experiences such as interstate travel, a cruise or an international adventure are options with the Holmesglen program.

You're not promoting an experience, but much more, you are providing a dream.
