Ben started out his career in travel working for Tourism Australia, where he was lucky enough to travel to all corners of the country. He moved to London with the job a few years later after visiting Europe as a solo backpacker, and ended up promoting Australia to the UK and Europe for seven years. Upon returning to Australia, Ben worked for Destination NSW as their food and drink specialist before working as a PR & marketing consultant for a range of travel, food and drink clients. Ben joined the Eclipse Travel family permanently as Marketing Director in 2018.
Using London as a base, Ben was able to explore much of Europe, with the most memorable trips being welcoming a New Year in Talinn, chartering a yacht with friends in Croatia, travelling around France for Rugby World Cup 2007, and driving from Sarajevo to Belgrade.
Recent travel highlights include getting engaged in Mendoza, and going on safari in Tanzania before visiting the winelands around Cape Town for his honeymoon. Next on the bucket list is Mexico, Cuba, the US again (Dallas, Boston, Chicago), Peru and Patagonia!
