Amanda Pelagalli

Mackay Aqua Park

From an early career in finance and business management, Amanda moved on to work in a range of exciting, diverse roles from travel consulting, social media marketing to business owner.

Amanda's first role in tourism saw her become an award-winning travel consultant and visit 20 countries. From there, Amanda started her own consulting business focused on assisting small business owners in tourism and hospitality with content creation, social media campaigns and marketing strategies.

Amanda’s love of the tourism industry, combined with her strong business background and marketing skills, propelled her to become a tourism business owner herself and establish a popular new visitor experience for the Mackay region. As owner of the Mackay Aqua Park, Amanda oversees all business operations, marketing, staff and community engagement.

With a passion for Queensland tourism and the Mackay region, Amanda has recently launched another adventure tourism business, a cable wakeboarding facility called Wake House Australia. Amanda isn’t stopping here, she has more plans in the pipeline and a vision for tourism in her home town.
