Get to know Perth’s most awesome travel influencers

Perth travel bloggers work hard to keep us in the know about what’s hot in the city and throughout Western Australia. They do the hard yards to explore and sniff out the best accommodation, food, transport, activities, parks, beaches, extreme sports and cultural aspects of the places they live and visit. And they pass that information onto you via their travel blogs.

Let’s take a look at the top Perth travel blogs to follow in 2018.

West Australian Explorer


Nina Burakowski travelled around the world for 10 years before returning home to the casual beach lifestyle of Perth that she loves. Now, she explores Perth and the great state of Western Australia to quench her thirst for travel and adventure. She loves outdoor sports, anything to do with water, beaches, gourmet food and good wine. She’s written or featured posts about everything from craft beer to the best places to hike with your dog to what you need to know about skydiving. If outdoor adventure with your furry best friend and drinking fine wine is your thing, follow Nina’s WA Explorer.

The ZigaZag Mag

Johanna Castro leads the way around the great state of WA with a mix of personal stories, travel inspiration and reviews at her travel and lifestyle blog, ZigaZag. Jo calls herself an “empty-nester” which means that her children have grown and left home (the nest). This gives Jo lots of time to get to know her home region of the South West, and the rest of WA, intimately. Originally from South Africa, Jo has travelled the globe in search of adventure, fine wine and humour. Keep in touch with Jo’s travels at ZigaZag Mag.

Let Me Be Free Blog

Anne Downing’s family motto is ‘let me be free’, inspired by Xavier Rudd’s song, Let Me Be. It’s so loved that Anne also named her travel blog after it. Anne and her tribe love to spend time in nature, away from the noise and fuss of modern technology. The aim of her blog is to not only document her family’s experiences, but also to motivate others to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the great outdoors. If you’re wondering how to get the kids to ditch the devices, follow Anne’s family around WA and the world via her family travel blog.

Wild Western Australia

Head blogger at Wild Western Australia is Bonny Wells from Perth. Bonny’s a seasoned WA expert who has travelled Australia’s largest state since she was a child. Bonny offers a wealth of experience, knowledge and guidance to the best of WA travel. She’s into camping, snorkelling and trekking but she shares a variety of travel tales and photography too.

WA and Faraway

Rebecca Boteler worked as a journalist in Perth before packing it all in (her suitcase) and moving to Bali to chase her dream of being a travel writer. After three years of the digital nomad lifestyle, she returned home to Perth but her love of travel remains. Now, she scratches her itchy feet by touring Western Australia and documenting her travels on her blog, WA and Faraway. You can also hear Rebecca talk about travel on ABC720 every second Saturday morning. To find out where’s she been and the awesomeness she’s discovered, subscribe to WA and Faraway.
