Donna Gauci is returning to Adelaide to take up the newly created role of General Manager, SeaLink Kangaroo Island for the SeaLink Travel Group.

Announcing the appointment, SeaLink Managing Director Jeff Ellison said Ms Gauci was well known in the Australian tourism industry having held senior roles with Proud Australia and Great Southern Railways.

For the past five years she was the General Manager of SeaLink New Zealand.

“SeaLink is one of Australasia’s most dynamic transport and tourism businesses growing at a rapid pace and we are thrilled to welcome Donna back to Australia, a highly experienced manager who will lead our entire Kangaroo Island operations into the future,” he said.

“The appointment follows a period of remarkable growth for SeaLink which just last year bought luxury 4WD tourism operator Kangaroo Island Odysseys from Australian Pacific Touring (APT) and most recently, iconic Townsville-based ferry operation Sunferries.”

Todd Bolton has been appointed to replace Ms Gauci as the new General Manager SeaLink NZ.

Previously he held senior roles in companies such as P&O Cruises in NZ, Sabre Pacific and Gullivers Travel Group.

Since 2004, SeaLink has operated passenger, vehicle and freight ferry services between Auckland and the tourist islands of Waiheke and Great Barrier in the Hauraki Gulf as well as providing holiday packages to both destinations.

Ms Gauci will commence her new role on 29 August
