Our Story

Ovation Travel & Cruise Planners is part of McLachlan Travel Group, a family company that has been prominent in the Australian travel industry for more than 30 years.

The McLachlan family first began organising holidays for Australian travellers in 1979, when Gil and Leonie, opened a small travel agency in West Wyalong, a town of 3000 people in the NSW wheatbelt. Since then the company has grown, but is still very much a family enterprise.

Ovation Travel & Cruise Planners shares the core values that were established by Gil and Leonie when they opened their first travel agency all those years ago: to provide knowledge and value to Australian travellers, and the best holiday experience possible.
