Founder Matt Mullamphy first represented Australia at the World Bridge Championships in 1989. In addition to winning over 30 national titles, he has represented his country with distinction on eight occasions, winning a gold medal at the Far East Championships as well as silver and bronze medals at World level. Matt’s passion for travel began when he toured extensively throughout Asia and Africa as a cast member of the highly successful international production of “Les Miserables”. This experience equipped Matt with a strong understanding of foreign cultures and a unique view of what the world has to offer. Upon returning to Australia Matt continued to play and teach bridge and in 2006 he opened the Harbourview Bridge Club.
