Guido Canale 1933 – 2022

Guido had over 60 years of experience in the travel industry. He founded Canale Travel Service soon after migrating from Italy in the early sixties. His love and passion for his ancestral homeland are what drove him to bring his two homes – Australia and Italy – closer together. Guido’s extensive knowledge and personal experiences, along with his astute business sense, had made him a well-established and respected name in his community. Guido’s community involvement had led to many honourable mentions and accolades such as BEM, British Empire Medal, OAM, Order of Australia Medal, CAV, Italian Knighthood, PHF, Rotary Paul Harris Fellow and was also actively involved in many other Cultural and Sporting associations.
