Kenn Holmes knows the Gold Coast and the Gold Coast knows Kenn. This af­fa­ble guy has worked in many of the city’s most pop­u­lar tourist spots and ac­com­mo­da­tion houses in his 30-year his­tory in the lo­cal tourism in­dus­try. Some of Kenn’s claims to fame in­clude show­ing John Tra­volta and Mariah Carey around var­i­ous Gold Coast at­trac­tions. So it was a nat­u­ral and or­ganic pro­gres­sion for Kenn to share his lo­cal knowl­edge with in­ter­ested trav­ellers via his new busi­ness, ACE Tours and Trans­fers.

Kenn’s tours and trans­fers are any­thing but or­di­nary. “ACE” is an acro­nym for “Aus­tralian Con­vert­ible Ex­pe­ri­ences” and Kenn’s busi­ness cen­tres around his uber-cool black Holden Cas­cada – a top­less beauty of­fer­ing the largest foot­print of any com­pa­ra­ble con­vert­ible car, pro­vid­ing heaps of legroom for up to three guests at any one time. And, of course, a lit­tle bit of wind through your hair! “We of­fer day tours to iconic lo­ca­tions like By­ron Bay, O’reillys, Tweed Heads, Tam­borine and the Scenic Rim, even Aus­tralia Zoo,” Kenn ex­plains. “We like to stay off the high­way, pre­fer­ring the rain­for­est and beach­front where pos­si­ble.

“And we also of­fer trans­fers to any lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion houses, or even two-to-six-day tours be­tween here and Syd­ney.”

Kenn’s ap­proach to his busi­ness is one of com­plete flex­i­bil­ity. He’s more than will­ing to ac­com­mo­date his clients’ re­quire­ments and of­fers his own ad­di­tional ideas, while lever­ag­ing his many in­dus­try con­nec­tions for book­ings and up­grades, to en­sure the best pos­si­ble bi­tu­men ad­ven­tures.
