Meet the Team behind Sightseeing Pass Australia
Chad D’Souza – Co-Founder and Managing Director
“A true sandgroper born and bred here in Perth so I’ve had the plenty of opportunities to travel extensively around Western Australia enjoying what I love the most about the state…surfing and mountain biking in Margaret River, boutique wines from the Swan Valley, exploring the Kimberley and enjoying an afternoon at Matso’s Brewery in Broome.
I guess this is why travel is one of my true passions..it started in my 20’s when I left Perth to venture around the world and for ten years I lived and worked in hospitality and tourism in London, Budapest, Greece, Montreal, New York and New Zealand.
This industry I love with a passion, the people behind that operate the tours, the teams that work hard to promote the tours and all the film crews and media that I’ve hosted to broadcast this incredible destination.
I hope you love SightSeeing Pass and the journey’s it will take you on. For me…its about creating experiences that involve fun and memories but most of all the ease of booking your holiday to Western Australia.” – Chad

“Lets not beat around the bush…my home country will always be New Zealand as that is where I was born and lived for 34 years but now, Perth is my home and I absolutely love it.
What keeps me here…hands down the climate, beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is so laid back and we all love spending as much time outdoors as possible…its healthy and keeps us happy!
I have to say life is fairly busy for me being a mother and running a couple of businesses including Sightseeing Pass, but there is nothing better than jumping on our bikes with the kids heading to the beach each afternoon.
What are my top favourite experiences in Western Australia? Hands down laying on a secluded beach at Rottnest Island, taking my family camping and fishing in Margaret River and enjoying the company of a friendly camel on a sunset camel ride at Cable Beach.” – Lisa

“Originally from Exmouth Western Australia I cannot get enough of the sun, sand and sea. I was lucky enough to grow up with the Ningaloo Reef in my backyard and would spend the weekends snorkeling or relaxing on the beach.
I have been living in Perth for the past couple of years and still look for every opportunity to escape to the beach. When the sun is out you’ll find me at Yanchep, Hillary’s or Rottnest enjoying the beautiful weather.
I have grown up in a tourism dependent town so it is something I am very passionate about. I am looking forward to working with Sightseeing Pass Australia and the amazing tourism industry in Western Australia.”
Sightseeing Pass is pleased to announce Abigail Bailey as the Social Media Manager. Abbie has recently graduated Edith Cowan University with a Bachelor of Commerce with a double degree in Public Relations and Journalism.
“I was born and raised here in Perth. When I was 8 years old my parents took us travelling around Australia where we stopped at some of the most iconic locations such as Broome, the Bungle Bungles, Noosa, Alice Springs and Katherine Falls. A postcard does not do justice to the beauty of these destinations.
However, I’m a city girl at heart so I love making trips to Melbourne or Sydney for the weekend. I can catch up with friends, shop, dine and enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day.
I moved to London in 2012 for a year to live and to work and to experience the culture that is the London-lifestyle. While I was there I had the opportunity to attend the Olympic Games. It was such an incredible experience to see so many people from all across the world come together and share in a single experience. And something which really inspired my passion for the tourism industry.
While I love to travel, Perth will always be home. I love to be out and about – catching up with friends for coffee, stopping for lunch at Perth’s newest food venue or enjoying afternoon drinks by the beach.”
