About Antipodal

With 30 years of experience in the luxury travel industry, Libby Cooke started Antipodal in June 2012 to showcase the unique experiences available initially in Australia, and now New Zealand, Fiji and Canada. Antipodal highlights these alluring destinations and personalized experiences to the top travel buyers in North America.  


Libby’s career has taken her all over the globe to the most revealing and authentic destinations. Her passion for truly unique experiences was born from her 7 years with Lindblad Expeditions. Her background ranges from small boutique properties to Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, international expedition cruising with Lindblad, South African safaris and TCS Private Jet trips around the world. Collectively these experiences provide Libby with an appreciation of the truly magnificent and the unique opportunities available for today’s discerning  clientele.
