It takes a top team to make Tindarra as special as it is

February 10, 2018

Resort managers:

Sean and Amber Goggin

WITH a combined 15 years’ experience in the tourism industry, Sean and Amber know how to make your holiday, event or overnight stay an unforgettable experience.

Working in travel previously, Amber moved into tourism when she and husband Sean bought the Old Coach Motor Inn in Echuca. After they later sold, she worked in reception at Quest Echuca before moving to Tindarra.

Sean made the bold transition from banking to tourism with the purchase of the Old Coach Motor Inn. After a brief stint with Murray Regional Tourism, he and Amber were approached to manage Tindarra.

Three years on, Tindarra Resort has become a dream home for Sean and Amber and their two daughters Jenna, 8, and Isla, 5.

And they say they wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.

“We love it, it’s a fantastic place to live and work,” Sean said.

Above all, Sean and Amber hope Tindarra is a home – not just for their family – but for every guest who drives through the entrance.

“We are fortunate to have a team at Tindarra who are committed to delivering an outstanding experience for our guests,” Amber said.

“It’s important for us to continually strive to be the best, whether it’s through guest feedback, the presentation of the resort or the experience we deliver through our weddings and events.”


Vanessa Bronsgeest (event manager)

Nadine Hession (assistant event manager)

VANESSA and Nadine will go above and beyond to see your dream event come true.

And judging from the rave reviews and booked out calendar, they must be doing something right.

Vanessa launched her career managing restaurants, but it wasn’t long before she discovered she had the Midas touch for running events.

Looking for a tree change from the hectic Melbourne rhythm, she joined the Tindarra team as events manager 12 months ago.

And it wasn’t long before she developed a passion for sharing the beauty of Echuca-Moama with others through Tindarra Resort.

“In my time as an events manager I had never seen such a unique and special events venue as Tindarra Resort,” she said.

“I knew as soon as I saw it that I would love working here. And that has certainly been the case.”

Assistant events manager Nadine worked for the Northern Territory Government before she and her husband moved to the region three years ago.

Initially in housekeeping at Tindarra, she eventually moved into events, providing the ideal partner for Vanessa.

“I help with the operational side of events so Vanessa can really focus on the sales and communications aspect,” she said.

“We form a perfect team. And it’s such a joy to see people’s events become a reality.”


Bradley Mason

KEEPING Tindarra’s 13 acres of gardens and outdoor areas pristine is Bradley’s top priority.

And he’s good at it – it’s hard to tear your eyes away from the green vistas surrounding Tindarra’s villas.

“Our guests really love our garden, so we work hard to ensure that it is looking its best at all times,” he said.

And while Tindarra’s latest developments will mean more work for Bradley, he said he was excited to create even more spaces for guests to enjoy.


THE housekeeping staff at Tindarra pride themselves on going above and beyond to provide an enjoyable experience for their guests.

The modern apartments are meticulously cleaned, with housekeeping staff on hand to help with customer requests.
