Born and raised in a small village called Borgo San Siro, located in the northern part of Italy, tour operator Filippo Gelada says, “I’ve always loved meeting new people, travelling the world and adventure. I’m pretty much living the dream!”
After obtaining a degree in interpreting and communication, Filippo worked as sales manager for a manufacturing industry and in 2011 moved to Australia with his girlfriend.
On board of an old 4WD, the couple travelled around this beautiful country for a year in a Sydney-to-Sydney adventure, driving 38,075 kilometres and falling in love with each place they visited. Australia captured the affections of the pair so much that they decided to start a new life here Down Under.
“It was a choice made with our hearts, and we picked the heart of Australia to live – the stunning Red Centre!” says Filippo.
The couple moved to Alice Springs in April 2013 and fell in love with the town, the long hot summer, the characters, the red soil, the natural environment and the whole stunning Central Australia region.
They have lived here happily ever since and even got married on the red sand in front of Uluru!
Here in the Centre Filippo worked for a couple of years as tour guide for another tour operator and after that, for almost a year, for Tourism Central Australia as the membership officer. He says that both of those jobs helped him to build and develop the knowledge of the region and of the tourism industry.
In January 2016 he took the plunge and decided to fully dedicate himself to his passion project – Outback Elite Tours. Together with a small team of experienced and accredited guides, Filippo’s mission is to run tours of the highest standards in English, Italian and Spanish, offering a unique, unforgettable and personalised experience to all of his passengers.
Awarded a 2018 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor, Outback Elite also is accredited by the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program, won the New Tourism Business Award in the 2016 Tourism Central Australia Awards and the Tour and Transport Operators Award at the 2017 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards. And if all that isn’t enough to convince you there are also a slew of glowing customer testimonials on its website. What’s stopping you!
