Monique Monsees completed her travel training and started in the travel industry in 1988 with Cherrybrook Travel- with its original office in the Appletree Shopping Centre, Cherrybrook. In 1991 Monique took over as owner of the agency and in 1993 moved the agency to its current location in the Westleigh Village. With her European background it is natural that she is an expert on Europe, but her love of travel and lengthy experience means she is expert in every aspect of travel.

Monique has travelled not only through Europe, but also to Hong Kong, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Hawaii, and Los Angeles; as well as extensive travel around Australia.

Lately Monique has fallen in love with cruising and likes nothing better than trying out the different cruise lines and ships.

Monique works every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and the 1st Saturday of the month. You can contact Monique via the office phone number and email address.
