The travel industry lost another doyenne last week with the death of Rosemary Peart, founder of Sydney’s Ramsgate Travel Service, at the age of 84.
Peart was a pioneer of the sector, escorting scores of her own tours as well as being one of the country’s first cruise sellers as far back as the 1970s.
She established her business in 1982 under the slogan “Think Travel, Think Rosemary”.
Justine Sealey, who is now the owner of the business, started there for Year 10 work experience in 1987, and took over in 2018.
“It was an absolute honour and privilege to not only get my start in the travel industry and be employed by, and work alongside Rosemary, but more importantly call her a mentor and friend for almost 35 years,” Sealey said.
“Rosemary’s greatest legacy is the many thousands of people who have wonderful travel memories that are treasured, thanks to her creating their amazing holidays”.
