A Long Journey


I pride myself in sharing my adventures around Australia. Recently I had the opportunity to travel to the fabulous Western Australia and made my final stop at the famous Margaret River, A magnificent place and region. Here I discovered the Margaret River is renowned around the world for it’s premium Wines and Fine Foods. My experience was extraordinary and will always be remembered as one of my special journey’s of Australia.

These Australian products from Margaret River I have sourced will tempt your taste buds and will absolutely complement that SPECIAL COROPRATE GIFT or a basket filled with delicious delights for ALL OCCASION.

Share in Breda’s fabulous journey and discover the amazing flavours of the Margaret River Region by enjoying one of Breda’s beautiful Gourmet Hampers, Baskets or a Delightful Designer Box of fine foods and wines.

I would like to share with you my Journey around the regions of Australia sourcing 100% Australian Made Australian Grown products. My experience was overwhelming and my Discovery Amazing. I am so proud to Portray my Delightful Gourmet Baskets, Hampers, and Deluxe Designer Boxes with a Delicious Range of Gourmet Fine Foods and Wines that Journeyed Australia Wide.

My aim is to encourage everyone to buy Australian Made, to support our Country with a Future and give our Children a good Future also. My ultimate effort during my years of promoting Buy Australian Made Australian Grown goes back afar, to Australian Made membership No. 176. This has been an extraordinary experience for me. During these years in business there were very many memorable moments. In fact I recall when I was first approached and later, on a number of occasions, to send my Australian Made Products Overseas when clients insisted on receiving only 100% Australian Made in my Delightful Gourmet Food Baskets. I found this part of my business amazing. It encouraged me to take my business one step further when I approached our Duty Free outlet in Sydney, I was so honored that they accepted my products and they went into Duty Free stores Australia Wide.

25 Years later I still enjoy encouraging everyone to Buy Australian Made Australian Grown products, ensuring our country a good future. I would like to personally give my greatest gratitude and say Thank you to all my valuable clients, suppliers, family and friends for this most wonderful journey. Thank you. Breda x

We appreciate that you have taken valuable time from running your business each week to interact with the students and to share and demonstrate your business ethics, achievements, and awards to inspire and encourage them.

Idea is still flowering. 20 years on


Breda Olliffe gets a wonderful delight out of designing her exquisite baskets for special themes and occasions. When it came to developing an eye catching stationery design for her successful business, Breda Olliffe turned to the creative talents of her grandson. Her grandson, Ryan Lewin then 18 and preparing to join the Australian Defense Forces, but the legacy of his hand drawn flower during a school holiday visit to the Illawarra remains. His flower design is still used on the marketing material for Olliffe’s business, Bredas Delightful Baskets and, as a result, it has travelled the world.

The creation. Breda’s Delightful Baskets


Breda’s delightful baskets commenced many years ago and since then, the business has grown successfully. The reason I started my business was to introduce Ireland to Australia and Australia to Ireland, her original home country. Breda did this by designing delightful gourmet baskets with Australian Made, Australian Grown products. Breda said her career as a businesswoman began by chance when a basket of goodies she assembled was snapped up by some friends looking for an inspired gift. From there, Breda went on to develop Breda’s Delightful Baskets.


In the beginning!
