ANZA Travel had offices in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria, Ottawa, and Edmonton, Canada. It was known to many in North America for being a specialist Travel Agency sending people to Australia/New Zealand and Africa, and Asia. In 2004 ANZA Travel closed its doors due to bankruptcy after being in business for over 25 years.
Dianne Hall, an Aussie and the Founder/CEO of Go Walkabout Travel, was employed as a specialist Travel Agent in the Edmonton office when ANZA Travel closed its doors. Shortly after this, Dianne figured, with her long and extensive experience promoting her end of the world, that it was time to strike out on her own.
