55 Australian Travel Bloggers Hot Listed in 2014

Australian Travel Blogs

The Australian travel blogging community is surprisingly small. Unless you take into account the fact that travel blogging is largely a labor of love, in which case it kind of makes sense. You see on the surface travel blogging sounds like the perfect job until you realise that it’s still a job and a poorly paid one at that.

Fortunately we travel bloggers aren’t driven by greed or motivated by money. We’re driven by the love of travel, writing and story telling. We love taking photos and sharing them. We love dreaming about travel and travel itself, even if it means many long hours spent in cramped economy airline seats, in transit at crappy airports and stuck at dusty roadsides.

We travel bloggers not only say we love travel we get out there, do it and document it online too.

So I want to celebrate Australian Travel Bloggers and continue my tradition of listing Australian Travel Blogs and Bloggers which I started in 2012 and continued in 2013. The lists are ever-changing because new travel bloggers pop up then vanish but you’ll see a few stalwart Australian travel bloggers who’ve been at it for years.

How do you get on the GITHS Australian Travel Bloggers list?

Last year I listed every single travel blog I could find but this time I’ve decided to exercise a bit of quality control. So the blogs below are not only recently updated they also have a reasonably professional blog design but, most importantly, they all make me want to read them and travel more. Because that’s what travel blogging is all about.

In addition:

  • The travel bloggers must be based in Australian but not necessarily Australian – otherwise I would not be included (even though I’m not included any way since it’s my list!)
  • They must be personal travel blogs but have global and universal appeal so it’s not just closest friends and family who’d want to read the travel blog blog.

However, many new Australian travel blogs (or new to me) have been added so the list has grown to 55 and is now in alphabetical order just to emphasize they’re not listed from best to worst.

The Australian travel bloggers list is a work in motion because these travel bloggers are slippery fish and, in some cases, it was hard to tell exactly where the travel blogger lived. If anywhere, because that’s what traveler bloggers are like.

Apologies if you’re not on the list because I noticed your blog hadn’t been updated for a while. You’ve got to keep blogging, that’s rule number one. And if you think you should be here or you know another Australian travel blogger I haven’t mentioned just add them in the comments below.

Australian Travel Blogs and Bloggers to Watch in 2014

1. A Glass Half Full 

Travel writer Lee Mylne shares words and images about her travels near and far, and a few other musings on life and the world in general. She can be seen wrangling a wombat on her about page which is always a good sign. Twitter: Lee Mylne.

3. Aerohaveno

Tim Richards is a freelance travel writer who discusses interesting developments in travel, and shares his travel experiences on his travel blog Aero Haveno. Which sounds quite boring but is actually quite interesting – his post The Unpublished 16: Phillip Island for Adults got my attention anyway. Twitter: Aerohaveno

4. Bagni di Lucca and Beyond

Debra Kollka’s travel blog covers Brisbane, Bagni di Lucca and everything in between so if you want to run away to Italy here’s a good place to start.

10. Don’t Ever Look Back

Amy and Kieron are two fresh-faced young travelers from Melbourne who are on a mission to make travel fun. Which sounds like the way it should be.

No pressure AmzKiz – well maybe a little bit!  Twitter: @amzkiz

11. Eat Drink and Be Kerry

12. Frugal First Class Travel

Is frugal first class travel really possible? I wouldn’t have thought so but you can find out for yourself at Jo Karnaghan’s travel blog. Jo says the Frugal first class travel philosophy is to travel in the most luxurious way she can afford, at the cheapest price which makes sense. So go Jo. Twitter: jokarnaghan1

14. Her Packing List

I somehow missed Tash’s terrific blog from the list last year which was bad. Very bad.

34. Sydney – City and Suburbs

Heaps of photos every day.

35. Sydney Eye

Another fun Australian photo travel blog offering an eye to ‘that which went before’. In other words a look at what Sydney used to look like in years gone by compared to today.

36. Sydney Kids Food + Travel

By Seana Smith, author of Sydney for Under Fives, mother of four and Scottish expat who knows Sydney inside out is funny too, which I love. Plus I got to design her blog so it’s double love. If you’ve got kids and they sometimes drive you a bit batty then you will love her too. Twitter: Seana_Smith.

Worldwide travel tips, blog posts and photos from a wandering Aussie who has found fulfilment on the road.

43. Travel With Bender

Travel With Bender seems like a funny name until you realise that it’s written by Erin Bender and cover her travels with the Bender family which includes a husband and two preschoolers. Erin, you give good blog. Twitter: travelwitbender.

Mark is another Sydneysider and committed Australian travel blogger who takes great photos. Twitter: TravelWonders

55. Me – Annabel Candy at Get In the Hot Spot

Annabel Candy: Australian travel blogger, Web designer, writer, shameless middle-aged bikini wearer and part-time poser.

Why I write the Australian Travel Bloggers list

After spending hours (or was it days?) compiling this list last year and then seeing it be stolen by a prominent blog (they just copies and pasted the whole list into their blog then added a few more travel blogs at the end) I decided not to do it again. But then I had second thoughts.

No one really recognises the passion and time that goes into travel blogs. The PR industry bombard us with spam, the travel brands focus on getting us to promote them for free and the tourism boards don’t seem to know what to do with us local Australian travel bloggers so they focus on the overseas bloggers instead. Which is crazy because most of our tourists are local Australians not overseas visitors.

So I’m doing this to wave the flag for Aussie travel bloggers and all you represent. I appreciate you. I thank you for sharing your passion and for your dedication to promoting travel and adventure. Australian travel bloggers of 2014 I salute you.

Please leave a comment if I missed your travel blog and you live in Australia, or if you know a travel blogger who lives in Australia and isn’t listed.

And of course if you like the Australian Travel Bloggers 2014 list please do share it on Twitter and Facebook. Thank you.

Which are your favorites Australian travel blogs or bloggers and who’s missing?

Usually I have a no links in the comments rule but let’s break the rules here – feel free to leave links, even if they’re to your own travel blog but only if you  live in Australia. Otherwise we’ll be here forever.

Thank you: Linda at Journey Jottings for sharing your gorgeous map.

    It’s great that you changed your mind and decided to do this list again Annabel-thankyou. I echo your sentiments for doing so. When you see your list you realise just how many excellent Aussie travel blogs there are. Now to go and read those that are new to me!

  3. Johanna January 15, 2014 at 12:24 pm - Reply

    What a huge undertaking, Annabel. Thanks for taking the time to put such a comprehensive and well documented list together. Your descriptions of the blogs make me want to check them all out, and there are some new names in this year’s list that intrigue me. What a fabulous resource it should be for Tourism bodies and brands wanting to work with Aussie travel bloggers – I hope it gets spread far and wide and that many of these great bloggers benefit from the exposure (yourself included :) ) At the end of the day, travel blogging is a labour of love, you’re right. It’s a passion we all have – explore, discover, create, share – and repeat :)

      Hi Johanna,

      I’m sure it will be useful for Aussie/overseas travel destinations and brands that want to work with Australian travel bloggers and hopefully that will lead to some good opportunities for everyone.

    Awesome list, Annabel! I already follow many of these blogs and get lots of travel inspiration from them.

    I hope you’ll consider my blog in your list next year. My passion is travelling to Europe and I blog about my travels every week.


    • Annabel Candy January 16, 2014 at 10:16 am - Reply

      Hi Carolyn,

      Gosh you should have been there this year. Of course I know and love your blog but I always think you’re based in Europe not Australia. Sorry!

      • Carolyn @ Holidays to Europe January 16, 2014 at 10:54 am

        I wish I was based in Europe, Annabel, especially on days like today (45C), but alas I mostly only get to visit for a couple of months each year.

        Glad you like my blog just the same :)

  5. Debra Kolkka January 15, 2014 at 3:03 pm - Reply

    Thank you for including me in your list! I feel very honoured. I love travelling between my homes in Brisbane and Bagni di Lucca in Italy and I have now been writing the blog for 4 years. I don’t think I will ever run out of things to write about.

    And here’s another Australian travel blog you may not have come across before, that I’ve enjoyed reading for years: roamingdownunder.com/.

    Thanks Annabel for the list! Great to see Australian based blogs… I already follow a few of them including yours of course… To answer your question I would say that I follow yours and Y Travel Blog the most and are my motivators…
    Hope I make it on the list next year as I only started in 2013 … but am still here which is my achievement of the year :)
    Happy reading everyone….

    I’m so honoured to have made the cut again this year – and OH so grateful you put this together. And yes, I was surprised to see the cut & paste of your list on the ‘other’ site (praise be they didn’t delete ME!) too. But maybe they (perhaps inadvertently) played right into your hands by doubling the exposure for us Aussie travel bloggers?! And maybe they’ll do it again THIS year, but with credit for you!!

    Thank you so much for your support – and I’m glad you included yourself on the list this year!!

    Hello Annabel,
    A friend sent me the link to your amazing site. You certainly living a dream!

    I’ve been writing my travel blog, which features our travels in Australia and overseas, for more than a year now. I like to feature every story I have on a particular destination in a series before starting on a new area and I enjoy sharing our photographs. theeternaltraveller.wordpress.com/

    I also write a second travel blog purely for fun. It is a work of fiction and I laugh every time I write a new post. theadventuresofjustinbeaver.wordpress.com/

    I hope you enjoy reading both blogs some time.

    The Thoughtful Travel Writer (www.thoughtfultravelwriter.com) would be a good one to add to your list next year Annabel. It isn’t only about travel destinations, but ideas for reading, history of travel and philosophical ramblings on travel too.

    But congratulations on taking the time to do this list, it must be very time consuming.

    I’m so glad you did this list again. I’m new to the blogosphere, and your 2013 list was the way I found many of the blogs I now follow. And I have added another 8 from the list (and comments) today.
    I’ve only been blogging for a few months, but hopefully next year I might be considered for your list (please, please do it again next year, whether I’m on the list or not).

    Wow, great list!
    Can I put my hand up? I’m from N Ireland, but have been living in Melbourne the past four years. My blog – Eco Traveller Guide – is an online ecotourism and green travel guide, and although I do write a lot about Australia it also covers worldwide destinations… so I hope I qualify!
    It would be great to make the list next year!

    Thanking you so much for sharing a wonderful list of Australia Travel Bloggers – I never ever realised that there were so many Travellers in Australia sharing about their journey.

    Looking forward to connecting with them all :)
    And thanks heaps for adding our blog to the list

    Keep up the great work
    Lisa xx

    I enjoyed reading your selection. You have introduced me to some I didn’t know about and of course you have included a few of my own favourites in your list. I too have a travel blog about life in a RV on the Australian roads! Though life has thrown us a curve ball at the moment (I have a rare cancer), we are still using the time to convert a small bus into a motorhome ready for when i finish all my treatments! There’s no better place to recover than seeing Australia’s beauty!

    You’ve found a wide range of Australian travel bloggers. Well done.

    I hope next year we make it to your list.

    …No. 56! Littlenomads.com ….or maybe Diveplanitblog.com which I’m starting to put more effort into :)

    I’m also loving the idea of Jo’s new blog Lifestylefifty.com so I’m hoping she’ll accept a few guest posts from me this year as I hurtle towards my 50th birthday!

    Great list Annabel, there’s a heap of reading for me here. It’s ironic that we miss so much great travel writing when we are away travelling.

    I am so glad that you did this post again… I think a couple of companies copied the last one, in fact. But take it as flattery and continue regardless… great to have a pile of stuff to read including the ones in the comments.

    But first… our last travel of the summer holidays! Look forward to reading your new series too.

    Thank you Annabel for such an amazing list, highly appreciated! I have been following some of the blogs, but I was also happy to discover some new ones, cannot wait to check them all out :)
    I am an expat journalist/blogger living in Brisbane and I also do a lot of travel stories (related to Australian and international destinations) on my blog, Lisy Writes. I hope it will make it to your list next year :)

    Inspiration to get myself on the list.
    Step one – create a blog.

    Thanks for including me Annabel! I’ve only just noticed your list now … was a bit preoccupied at the beginning of this year with waiting for the baby to arrive and then dealing with him. So sorry I missed you AGAIN when I was on the coast. Next time we’ll meet for sure.

    Thank you for putting in the hard yards to create this list Annabel. It’s very handy and there are some I hadn’t heard of.

    I’d greatly appreciate it if you could add mine to the list as well (if you think it’s suitable).
