We work with thousands of retail agents across Australia and operate two of Australia’s most popular travel websites.

The Australian based team of Wholesale Holiday Specialists are well-trained and experienced professionals that help make our customer’s dream holiday become a reality. The Perth based Reservations Centre operates 7 days a week. Holidays are "hand-made" in order to enable sophisticated travellers to break free from the ordinary travel experience.

New all-inclusive holiday packages are being crafted and carefully designed on an ongoing basis. We are continually sourcing and evaluating new experiences and new suppliers to include within our high-volume holiday packages. The Product Inventory & Content Department is responsible for supplier relationships, live inventory and content within our system. A company culture is maintained that fosters excellence within each work team, and which delivers world-class business practices and professionalism.
All of our cutting-edge bespoke technology is developed in-house by our own dedicated team of quality obsessed Software Engineers. In handling such a large number of wholesale holiday bookings, it is vital that the company's computer reservations system is efficient and fully integrated with both our suppliers and our website. Our dynamic packaging system has been built by us from the ground up to enable us to have a significant edge and to ensure our customers have superior travel experience.

Initially founded in 1996 to bring visitors to just Western Australia, the company then expanded to all destinations across Australia and now to select overseas destinations through HolidayMax.
In just a few years, the Harding family grew Discover West Holidays to become the largest wholesaler for West Australia before then taking over the Best of The West Holidays business. Soon after, Discover Australia Holidays was launched and has since become the most trusted name for Australian all-inclusive touring; and continues to experience solid growth rates.
At the request of our loyal customers, we then expanded into select bucket-list destinations globally through HolidayMax™. They asked us to bring our hallmark special touches to a carefully hand-picked selection of incredible international experiences. As HolidayMax’s range continues to grow, so does it’s popularity.
