IT’S TIME TO
EXPLORE AUSTRALIA!

I’m really excited to be sharing practical tips for some of the best trips in Australia.

Perhaps we didn’t plan to be travelling in Australia this year, but it’s a great excuse to see what this incredible country has to offer!

WHO AM I?

My name is Michael Turtle and I have been a travel writer for a decade. You may have seen my weekly page in newspapers like The Canberra Times, Illawarra Mercury, or Newcastle Herald. I love discovering what makes destinations special and I’m pleased to be able to share that with you here.
