Welcome from the Editor

Welcome along. I’m Clare, Editor of Take Me To Australia. Having moved to Australia six years ago, I made it my mission to learn more about this epic country we now call home. As we travel across the country to unique destinations, we share with fresh eyes the most extraordinary places we are lucky enough to experience. We aim to inspire others to follow in our footsteps, explore what Australia has to offer, and even encourage people further afield to make a similar move.  We’ve grown a like-minded community of over 100,000 people. Be sure to join them by signing up to receive all the latest inspo, and connecting with us on Instagram and Facebook. See you soon.
