Our Story

Industry Heritage

Initially founded in 1996 to bring visitors to just Western Australia, the company then expanded to all destinations across Australia and then 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.

We listened to our loyal customers when they asked us to bring our hallmark special touches to a carefully hand-picked selection of incredible experiences globally – so HolidayMax was launched. As HolidayMax’s select range of bucket-list destinations continues to grow, so does it’s popularity.

HolidayMax and Discover Australia is respected for investing back in promoting sustainable tourism, and the economic and employment benefits it brings to various destination communities.

This privately held company is a great Australian success story and today is 100% owned by the Harding family, as it has been continually since 1996.
