“It gives me great pleasure to write my personal comments as to the quality and efficient services Boronia Travel Centre provides for both Gallipoli and Western Front Battlefield Tours.
Mr John Waller, the principal of Boronia Travel Centre, discussed with me at length what it was I required in such a Study Tour designed specifically for students, their family members and others associated with the College who may be interested in joining us. John carefully designed a 14-day Istanbul/Gallipoli/Troy tour culminating in attending the Dawn Service at the Anzac Commemorative Site. The itinerary planned by Boronia was exemplary and catered exactly to the needs of a varied group. Despite the limited accommodation options available at Gallipoli, we were provided with a high standard of facilities. Selection of restaurants and leams options were varied and catered for all dietary tastes and requirements.
Penrith Anglican College again used Boronia Travel as the provider to the Western Front and to London. The same outstanding service, accommodation arrangements, guides/translators, coaches and coach drivers were provided.
Our experience with Boronia staff has always been positive. All issues and requests, either prior to departure or on the ground, have been approached in a professional, helpful manner always resulting in a satisfying solution. Guides and historians are experienced and knowledgeable and have always engaged tour participants of all ages by enthusiastically sharing their passion for both the history and culture of the areas visited.
I commend Mr Waller and his staff for their attention to detail and for their tireless efforts in meeting the travel needs our our travel groups that have included a wide range of age groups. i have no hesitation in recommending their services or any group organisation seeking a highly competent, flexible and professional company that seeks to provide a unique experience tailored to the requirements of their clients. I plan to use Boronia Travel Centre for all of our future battlefield Study Tour arrangements.”

“On behalf of myself, the Terrace staff, students and parents who travelled to Gallipoli, I would like to thank you and your team for the support, guidance and encouragement we have been given over the past six years.
The experience and opportunity bestowed upon our College has been, for many, a once in a lifetime occurrence. Our young men were honoured to have had the opportunity to participate in this significant event.
This opportunity has seen the chori represent College and country for live audiences in the thousands and a television audience reported to be in the millions at six Dawn Services, five Lone Pine Services, one Battle of Lone Pine Service, a world premier of the Gallipoli Symphony at Hagia Irene in Istanbul for a VIP audience of international dignitaries, live TV audience and recording for DVD sales through ABC stored as well as the Australian Premiere of the same at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. This experience has seen approximately 100 Terracians visit and reflect upon Old Boy Terracians who fought for ‘Queen and Country’ 101 years ago, alongside visiting graves and learning more about the heroism of distant family members.
I wish to thank you and your team for providing a tour experience that allowed us to experience the wonderful diversity of Turkey and the emotion of Gallipoli. Once again, thank you.”

“Hi John, I have a few things in this email. The first is a huge thank you to you. Thank you for all the work you did pulling the Study tour together for the College. It was extraordinary! Thank you.
Secondly, Rodney!!!! What an extraordinary man. I would like to put in writing what an asset he was to the trip and just how much his presence, knowledge, expertise and conversations with the parents, staff, students and the dealings of ongoing and difficult situations will never be forgotten. He left quite an impact on everyone is the most profound and life changing way. While I have expressed this to the College and to Rodney himself, I feel it is essential that you also know this. Although, I am quite certain that it isn’t the first time that you have heard this. What a blessing he was to our College! Thank you again John and have a wonderful week.”
