Dreamtime Girl was launched in 2009 by Dominic Coleman and his wife, Amanda Townsend. Simply the vision was to do more of what they loved, which was chartering and ocean sailing and share it with others. In 2000, Dominic merged his skills in hospitality and his passion for sailing and started Sydney charter company, Sydney Harbour Escapes. The charter business grew into a large charter company representing over 140 boats. Dominic had co-owned the Rose of Australia Hotel in Erskineville and the Grand Pacific Hotel Kingscliff in Northern NSW with much experience in the hospitality industry. Amanda is an accomplished artist and brought the creative factor to the enterprise. Their sons Leo, Max and Marco have grown up with boats and are an integral part of the boat charter business. In a move to do more sailing, and Amanda to do more art, they sold Sydney Harbour Escapes in June 2019. With the loyal support of the Dreamtime Girl team, they have kept he boat in survey to continue doing charters on Sydney Harbour and the Whitsunday Islands. The boat is currently operated for charters by Andries Page.
The Dreamtime Girl team aims to follow the following principles to keep all systems afloat!
