Meet My Favourite Aussie Travel Bloggers

Since moving to this side of the pond I seem to stumble across another awesome Aussie travel blog everyday. As someone who is new to the country I’ve been devouring the advice local travel bloggers have to offer about travelling in Australia, as well as learning about some of the subtle differences between blogging in the Aussie market versus the UK one. For anyone planning on travelling to Oz, or just looking for some new content to light up your feed,I’d like to introduce you to my favourite Australian travel bloggers.

The Travelling Light

The Travelling Light is such a distinctive, beautifully designed blog I feel compelled to dig around further every time I end up on it. The content is a visual curation of special places the author Katie (a branding and marketing professional) has discovered around the globe. Her list of secret places I think you’ll love include; yoga classes in Hoi An, secret bars in London and gelato in Rome.

A Pair & A Spare

A Pair & A Spare is a lifestyle website with a heavy dose of DIY. Geneva, the author and founder, has combined her love for craft and design with travel to produce stylish travel guides and DIY travel projects. I hope to follow in the footsteps of her quick guide to Byron Bay someday soon and will pack my DIY travel journal with me when I go!

Mister Weekender

Mister Weekender wants me want to see more of Australia. Right this minute! Her images and itinerary suggestions for Tasmania, in particular, made me want to hop on the next flight. Site founder, Jaharn, very kindly puts all her itinerary recommendations into free downloadable pdf guides – how handy is that?

Little Grey Box

Phoebe’s site is chock-full of travel tips and intuitive living advice. She’s a Brisbane local and has lots of great posts (and videos) on things to do in the city. It’s her personal column that really draws you into Phoebe’s site though, her honesty and candidness in posts such as this are refreshingly endearing.

Escape Button

The evocatively named Escape Button makes me want to repeatedly press the escape button on my keyboard until I end up somewhere that looks like its home page! Run by freelance stylist Jess, I love how she injects her sense of style into her travel posts. Particularly impressive is the way she showed a stylish side to Canberra in her latest posts – this coffee roasters looks tempting and the photos from the hot air balloon ride she took are simply breath-taking.

Bitten By The Travel Bug

If I’m ever unsure about what airline or class to fly in I turn to Nicole. The self-confessed aviation geek behind Bitten By The Travel Bug writes such detailed flight reviews you feel like you flew with her (if only!) Based in Melbourne, she also writes about the street art and food scene they rock over there – she’s even got me tempted to try the Barbie High Tea at The Langham.

Pegs On The Line

I love a good travel story and Megan (or Pegs) from Pegs On The Line is a bloomin’ brilliant story-teller. She has the ability to take you on a journey; I’ve loved retracing her father’s footsteps with her in Queensland and watching her fall back in love with Tasmania – despite some (mainly internet and transport based) frustrations.

Adventure Baby

Following Christine’s blog, Adventure Baby, has taught me that having kids doesn’t mean you have to be any less adventurous – or that you must stop eating in nice brunch spots and cafes! Adventure Baby features child-friendly travel guides, tips on parenting around the world and food – lots of tempting and delicious food. I particularly enjoy Christine’s reviews of drool-worthy places to feed the family in Sydney, and the cute photos of her family dining out she includes in them.

Hope you enjoyed the list. I’d love to know what Aussie travel blogs you enjoy following.

    Thank you sooo much Jayne! You wrote so beautifully about my site, I really appreciate the kind words 🙂

    I also love the other bloggers you wrote about. Katie is a friend of mine and I lose hours pouring over her site! She’s pretty much my photography idol.

      You are so welcome. It has been an absolute pleasure discovering all these beautiful blogs and the kind women behind them. Katie is my photography idol too – I love the style of her photos and her blog design in general – it’s so creative and unique. Maybe I should ask her to design mine! Look forward to reading more of Phoebe’s corner too 🙂

    So many of these are my favourites too. Phoebe is brilliant! It was her blog that gave me the courage to finally take the plunge and move from blogging for others to doing it myself (and creating my own blog!). I’m bookmarking this post! Thanks so much
