Chelsea was born into tourism & travel is therefore in her blood. For the first 8 years of her life, she lived in her parent's backpackers resort. From a very young age, she interacted with travellers from all over the world. She also travelled frequently internationally with her family business.

Chelsea has spent considerable time travelling across Australia & experiencing van life. She has also lived, schooled & worked in beautiful locations such as Hervey Bay, Vanuatu where she was a teacher's aid, Byron Bay as a fashion marketing agent & surf instructor & Margaret River as a canoe/bush tucker tour guide & a cellar door assistant in the local winery. During this time she found a passion for photography, writing & gathering content for social media. She loves connecting with people of all ages & promoting great products in desirable locations through media. She is the social media guru for Adelaide Hills Escape.


Why are Brett, Kate & Chelsea the perfect combination for Adelaide Hills Escape & how did they meet?Well, back in the 1990's, Kate's mother worked for Sydney Street, the Partington's national multi award winning retail fashion stores.

In 2008, Kate returned to Adelaide from Hervey Bay & her mum Liz advised there was a position going at Sydney Street & should apply. Brett was the General Manager. He interviewed Kate & she was offered the position as a fashion sales consultant. Kate & Brett later developed Sydney Street's online store where she learnt many marketing/eCommerce skills.

Kate's daughter Chelsea then came on board as a fashion sales consultant when Sydney Street set up pop up store's at the country field day locations across South Australia. It was then realised by the Sydney Street management that Chelsea, her mother Kate & her grandmother Liz all had a similar work/sales ethic & a strong rapport with customers.

Today, the two families not only still work in business together but also connect at special events.
