The Essential Toddler & Baby Show isn’t just a calendar highlight for its impressive collection of products and information, all under one roof – it’s also a hub for industry experts and familiar faces to share their knowledge and expertise to parents.

One such familiar face is Australia’s most recognised travel expert, Natalie Gruzlewski. Gold Coast-local Natalie was appointed as My Holiday Centre’s Brand Ambassador in August 2019. It was a perfect fit, considering her a successful television career hosting well-loved shows like Getaway, the popular match-making show Farmer Wants a Wife, When Love Comes to Town and Australia’s Mega Cruise Ship, as well as various other appearances across the Channel Nine Network.

Complimenting her presenting roles, Natalie is an established MC, event host and brand ambassador. She has supported and worked with various charities, including Life Education, Bravehearts, RSPCA and Foodbank. Natalie has also made various special features for the Australian Women’s Weekly, the Logies red carpet and other entertainment segments.

Two decades working in the media – both as a talented TV presenter and an engaging corporate host – combined with her enthusiasm and passion for travel make Natalie the perfect person to present the ‘Beginner’s Guide to Travelling with Kids’ at this year’s Essential Toddler & Baby Show.

During the one-off presentation this Saturday, from 1.45pm until 2.10pm, Natalie and co-presenter Sue Johnson will share their tips and tricks for making travelling with kids a breeze – a topic that many parents attending the show will surely be interested in.

During the presentation, Natalie will not only draw on her experience reporting on some of the world’s most luxurious and exciting holiday destinations, but also the experiences she has had in her more recent role as the My Holiday Centre ambassador – in which she features across all My Holiday Centre destinations to share what goes on behind the scenes to deliver unbeatable, valued package holidays.

Natalie will be joining a star-studded line-up of parenting experts at the show, including breast-feeding expert Pinky McKay, the Australian Breastfeeding Association, Katie Lavercombe of Mums of Brisbane, the ‘Mummysomniac’ Kirsty Mckenzie and more!
