Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs for 2016

Share this article with your friends!

Welcome to the 2016 edition of the ranked list of the top Australian and New Zealand travel blogs.  For the first version of this list I have assessed and ranked 138 travel blogs, and I expect to add more blogs to this list following publication so that it is comprehensive.  The new post of Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Bloggers for 2017 has now been published so click through to see the latest information!

I posted my previous list in 2013 and it was very well received – and most of the listed travel blogs have received a regular stream of visitors as a result of the previous list article holding the top ranking article position in Google for the ‘australian travel blogs’ and ‘new zealand travel blogs’ keywords.

How Many Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs Are There?

In my previous list I assessed 103 blogs – this time around I have assessed 138 blogs – and there are undoubtedly some more who aren’t on my list.  If you missed out please check the assessment criteria below and if you think you should have been included please let me know about your blog in the comments below.  I plan to update this article to include the additional blogs where they meet the assessment requirements.

Travel Blog Assessment Criteria

I have amended my blog assessment and ranking approach to include the following criteria:

  1. The blog must have some link to Australia or New Zealand – this includes people who were born or raised in either country, a blog with a substantial focus on Australia or New Zealand, or a blog where the writer is spending a significant amount of time living in either country, for example as a long term expat or here on a working holiday visa.  A three week visit two years ago doesn’t quite cut it…  🙂
  2. The blog must be active, with travel related articles published in the past three months (and yes, I checked every site :)).
  3. The blog must have a substantial amount of travel articles – at least 50% of the content needs to be travel related.
  4. The blog must have its own domain name (ie. yourtravelblog.com, not yourtravelblog.blogspot.com or yourtravelblog.wordpress.com).

Ranked Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs

The blogs have been ranked purely using their current Domain Authority (sourced from MOZ Open Site Explorer).  Domain Authority is a number out of a maximum of 100, with a higher number indicating a website which has a higher level relative to other websites.

Please note that Domain Authority is not necessarily a true indicator of actual website traffic but it is a useful indicator of the relative ranking for websites.  Also, Domain Authority levels oscillate with each update on Moz which occur every couple of months.  In my personal experience having tracked my blog Domain Authority monthly for several years now, while my current level is at 30, it has oscillated between 30 and 35 over 2015, and other blogs have a similar experience.

Please note that a couple of sites have rebranded during 2015 and I have tagged those with a note as the Domain Authority for their new domain names will take additional time to rise back to their true level.

Top 24 Ranked Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs

The top 24 ranked travel blogs have Domain Authority between 53 and 36, and each of these blogs is competitive in the global travel blogging industry and most are operated as substantial blogging businesses.

So there you have it, the ranked list of the top 138 Australian and New Zealand travel blogs.  I hope you have found some new blogs to follow!

New Travel Blogger Welcome

For those of you who are new travel bloggers, welcome to the Australian and New Zealand travel blogging community!  You may not yet be aware that the best place I have found to get to know our tribe, both ‘Down Under’ and in the international travel blogging industry is through Facebook groups.

First set up your Facebook profile so that your travel blog is listed as a website against your profile.  Note that if you do not do this you are unlikely to be added to any group, as the group moderators (who are time poor) get a lot of spam joining requests and you need to make it easy for them to check if you are a legit travel blogger. Otherwise they will ignore your application.

Once you have set up your profile you are then ready to apply to join some groups.  Search for the following groups as a great place to start, and there are many more to help beginner, intermediate and advanced bloggers get started.

  • We Travel We Blog
  • Aussie Bloggers
  • Part-Time Traveler Talk

If you are setting up or refreshing your travel blog site you may also be interested to check out 25 Best Premium WordPress Travel Blog Themes for 2017.

If you think you have been missed please add the details of your blog in the comments below.  Also, if you would like me to put some different info in the ‘Blog Niche’ column please let me know.  I hope you find this list of value and I have certainly enjoyed finding new travel blogs to follow.

164 thoughts on “Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs for 2016”

  1. What a list of bloggers! some am familiar with but there are now new ones to be discovered! Travelling Frenchies has made it on a list (happy dance). Now to move up that list in 2016!! Thanks for including us!

  2. Hi Anne, Thanks for compiling this list (and doing all of the hard work). I am thrilled to be at No. 38. It is interesting to see who is where on the list. Jan

  3. Hi Anne, I think I may have been missed 🙁 – I am pretty new though so it’s not unexpected. I’m over at http://www.maketimetoseetheworld.com – Originally from the UK, I traveled non-stop for four years before settling in Melbourne, Australia 3 years ago. I now blog about my past adventures as I plan for the next and hope to be able to make it onto your next list 🙂
    Thank you and Happy Travels 🙂

  4. Hi Anne! What a lot of work – and thanx for producing this great resource!! So glad I made your list this year – looking forward to building my blog even more to improve my score. I’ll be producing a new list of Australian Travel Blogs (ie blogs with a high proportion of Australian travel content) soon for those who are specifically looking for Aussie travel inspiration!

    • Kathy, thank you for your comment and congratulations on being included. We are listening! But blogging is very challenging and takes a lot of time to build up your momentum, especially if you are doing it part time.

  5. So thrilled to be on this year’s list! I started my blog on a New Years resolution whim two years ago and have enjoyed the process of creating content that is useful to other travellers. Thanks for compiling this great list!

  6. Thanks Anne! You do such a great job compiling this list. A lot of hard work. I am stoked that ZigaZag is at #24. I think getting onto a list gives us renewed Fizz to keep going. Blogging is hard work, often relentless and sometimes you do wonder if anyone is listening which makes recognition all the more exciting. I’d like to say, Well done to everyone, regardless of what number you came in at. The Travel Blogging community is awesome and over the 6 years I’ve been writing ZigaZag I’ve met and made some great blogging friends. Keep on inspiring Y’All!

  7. This list just proves that some of the world’s most talented bloggers are based in or have some kind of deep connection to Australia and NZ- I’m an ardent fan of so many bloggers on this list.

  8. Wow! Anne 😀
    This is a true labour of love!
    Such a lot of work, but what an amazing endeavour ~
    Thrilled that I made the list, and fabulous to see so many Ozzie-NZ bloggers who are out there adding to the mix.
    All the best for the New year 🙂

  9. What an amazing list and huge amount of work this represents! I’d love to have you take a look at my blog, Between Roots and Wings, an American in Australia expat blog, as I believe it may meet your criteria (http://betweenrootswings.com). Thanks, and looking forward to getting to know some of these blogs I haven’t seen, yet.

  10. Thanks for the comprehensive list. This is a good thing you’ve done. Thanks for introducing me to new blogs as well.

  11. We were in New Zealand and Australia for almost a month last year and I wish I would have had this list while planning!!! I always use a combo of blogs, tripadvisor, etc when planning a trip, so this is a great resource for people ready to go explore Australia/ New Zealand!

  12. Epic list! How wonderful is to know so many people love and share this beautiful country of ours, and of course New Zealand? We’re so so happy we made Australia our focus for the past 2 years and have been able to share just how amazingly exotic and beautiful it is. Congrats to everyone who made the list – keep shining the Aussie + Kiwi light! Thanks for including us within such a great community.

  13. Thanks for the inclusion Anne! Honoured to be on the list and what a great resource you’ve put together. Nice to be part of one big massive tribe – the TTT, Trans-Tasman Tribe 🙂

  14. Wow Anne! I can’t imagine the number of hours you must have put in to produce this list, so a HUGE thanks for doing that. I am very chuffed to be listed at #26 (up from #44 in 2014) and in such great company. Many of the bloggers listed are a big inspiration to me and you’ve given me lots more to follow, too. Thanks again, and here’s to a year full of travels in 2016.

  15. Thank you for creating the list Anne, so thrilled to see I bumped up 20 places (#69 to #48) from the last list – which I had quite a number of click through’s. So thank you for sharing all these great Aussie and NZ blogs.

  16. Hi, Great list but I can see some notable omissions of some very popular, long staring food and travel blogs. I’m wondering how you decided something was a travel blog more so than a food blog?

    Thanks for sharing
    Julie
    Gourmet Getaways

    P.S I did read the 50% content rule but I guess my questions about sites such as my own. For example my format is 1 travel story, 1 restaurant review from my travel location, and one recipe per week. 2/3rds content is travel related i.e.: where to stay, what to do or where to eat, the other 1/3 is a recipe.l I’m sharing. Would you class this as a travel blog.

    • Julie, thank you for your comment. I am aware that many blogs are about a combination of food and travel, however the focus of this list is on travel bloggers, which is why I set the requirement that at least 50% of articles are travel related. Many food bloggers do blog about travel but it is usually at most 1/3rd of their content, and as a result I have not included them.

      Your blog sounds like you may have a greater focus on travel, so I will add it to my spreadsheet for consideration along with quite a few other bloggers who have made contact. I will let you know in the next week or so if I believe that it meets the criteria I have set once I have done a detailed review of your site like I have already completed for every other blog on the list.

  17. Hi Anne,
    Thanks for all your hard work. About a year ago you inspired me to start my own blog. I am now at the stage of wanting more exposure it to get off the ground, so if it could be included in the list that would be great!
    My blog focuses independent family budget travel.

  18. I now have my reading cut out for me in 2016 – there’s a lot of names I don’t know on these lists so I’ll be keen to discover their work.

  19. Wow! This is an amazing list of some awesome Australian and New Zealand blogs! It was a lovely surprise to see my blog on this list! Thank you so much for listing it! Hopefully I can work my way up on the ranking list!

  20. Thanks for putting this awesome list together Anne and of course for including us in it! This is a great way to discover some new blogs. Hopefully we will get to meet up with some of these other Aussie bloggers as we travel around Australia over the next few years.

  21. Thanks so much Anne. It’s nice to be connected to all these bloggers that share the same passion and to source more inspiration. I was surprised to see I just squeezed in!

  22. OMG working hard not to be devastated… before the November rebrand my blog had a DA of 36 so might have been in top 25… now I don’t even know what it is!!

    But will get a grip. the interesting thing is that thanks to my web expert the traffic is only slightly down (still about 30,000 uniques a month) so that’s good.

    It’s SO handy to have a list of the Aussie Travel Blog space. Thanks Anne, it’s such hard work and much appreciated. I’ve been meaning to update my 2014 list of family travel bloggers but am daunted by the prospect of the labour involved.

  23. There are so many travel blogs around the world now which is brilliant. Its so important that you work on writing/photography as well as ranks. Keep the standard high and lets show them what bloggers can do!

    • Anne, thank you for your comment and welcome to travel blogging. Unfortunately I cannot include your blog at the moment – if you look at the assessment criteria in the article you will see that one of the requirements is to have your own blog domain, and you don’t yet meet that criteria. When you decide to take this step please let me know and at that point I will then include you on my list for consideration.

  24. Hey There Anne, I am sooooo thrilled to be included in this list – many many thanks! 🙂 Just a quick correction: Happiness & Things is not an Expat Travel Blog. While I am originally from Germany I have been living in Australia for 11 years, so I consider myself an Aussie now and not an Expat, and I don’t write for that particular audience. If you could just change this to “Travel” – I think it would be a better fit. Many thanks again and yeay also to everybody else who got included in this list. We all rock!

  25. Anne, what a list!! I know this has been your baby in development for quite a while, well done chica!

    We are really excited to be on it and proud to be amongst such great company.

    If you have a sec I would love a rundown on MOZ.com – I’ve had a look but I’m terrible at understanding how/why it works.

    Kind regards,

    Prue

    • Thanks Prue, I am happy to have been able to finally publish the latest list. Last year I was in overload due to work, study and family commitments and ended up reducing my blogging to compensate.

      Domain Authority works based on the number of quality links you have built to your website. For example every time you comment on another blog post or do a guest post or are mentioned on another website that helps to build your DA. Moz updates their DA assessments every couple of months with a maximum score possible of 100 – the highest level travel bloggers typically only can achieve a DA in the 50s and 60s.

      It does not directly correlate to website traffic but you can see that the top bloggers on the list definitely have higher DA rankings – it is probably in the next tier down that it can become a bit more subjective. For example, if someone has focused on building links to their site they may have a higher DA than someone who has much higher page views, and my site is definitely in this category – I know the traffic levels of other sites lower than Pretraveller on the list who receive much greater page views. But partly as a result of these list articles I actually build very good DA as a large number of the bloggers listed will link back to this article on their sites ‘About Me’ or ‘Work With Me’ pages which has the effect of improving my DA… And then Google ranks my site higher and I get more page views from search…

      My travel blogging friend Sharon Gourlay on her site DigitalNomadWannabe.com recommends that sites need to have a DA of around 30 before they can be competitive to get the higher search rankings from Google and the associated increased traffic. So as early bloggers it is very worthwhile to focus on legitimate link building strategies (eg. blog commenting and guest posting) in the early days of our blogs as that will then enable the higher search traffic which then opens the doors to other opportunities.

  26. Hey Anne, I’d love to be included in one of your updates if we make the criteria. I have a blog called http://www.theygetaround.com that has grown quite a lot over the last 6 months. We are a couple from Australia that focuses on travel photography and adventure travel and I think our DA is either 25 or 27. Happy to share traffic + social media stats if you want them just send me an email lexi@theygetaround.com 🙂

    • Danielle, thank you, it did take quite a few hours to put the article together but hopefully it becomes a great resource for people to use to connect with Australian and NZ travel bloggers. My aim was for all Australian and NZ independent travel bloggers who have made the transition to their own domain name to have the opportunity to be discovered!

  27. Hi Anne! This is an awesome list. And such a great reference. (It’ll be good to have a list of relevant and quality blogs.) Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together.

    Would you consider adding us to the list? We (AboutAustralia) are a team of 20 people who specialize solely in helping people plan their trips to Australia. As an avid trip planner yourself, I know you’ll appreciate it!

    Historically we’ve not been active bloggers, but we have recently started blogging regularly (thank you to our most recent additions to our Digital Marketing Team). We hope to find more people to share our Aussie knowledge & expertise and help make their vacations to our beautiful country a “Trip of a Lifetime”. We have collated our most popular highly ranked travel content here http://www.aboutaustralia.com/travel-tips/ . Our Blog Articles are here: Australia – http://www.aboutaustralia.com/blog/

    We also specialize in vacations to New Zealand which we have now branded through our sister website, http:///www.AboutNewZealand.com – we are now blogging travel tips here too. Similarly, we have collated our most popular travel content here http://www.aboutnewzealand.com/new-zealand-travel-tips/ . Our Blog Articles are here: New Zealand – http://www.aboutnewzealand.com/blog/

    We’d love it if you would consider sharing our content on your page – its our job to help people plan their trips to Australia & New Zealand and we’d be honored to be part of your list.

    Thanks so much, Anne!

  28. Hi Anne, what a fantastic list (and what a big job compiling it!). It’s great to have so many Australasian travel blogs listed in one place. I also have a travel blog, Briar’s Travel Beat http://www.briarstravelbeat.com.au so would really appreciate it if you could consider it when you do your next review. Many thanks! Cheers, Briar

  29. Hi, I’m The Global Goddess, an established Aussie travel blogger with a Domain Authority of 24, according to the link you have provided. There’s a number of top Aussie bloggers who have been excluded. Did you check with the Australian Society of Travel Writers and the relevant Kiwi body when compiling this?

    • Christine, thank you for letting me know about your blog. I have added it to my list to be considered to be added to this article. I have put together this list independently as I have no affiliation with either organisation.

  30. I’m so happy to have found this, Anne! If only I’d have discovered it before I went to Australia, as opposed to now, just after I’ve left my year on working holiday there. Better late than never, I guess! Have been blogging from Melbourne and Broome this past year, with lots of Tassie posts upcoming. I’ll definitely be checking out these groups and resources. Thanks so much for putting all of this together — looks like it took a lot of time and effort!

    I just caught the bit about submitting my blog information to be added. I’m at http://www.hummingbirdaway.com, with posts focusing on moving to and working in Australia on the working holiday visa, Melbourne/Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania. Cheers!

  31. Hi Anne,
    Amazing list, I wish I searched for this before to know more about aussie and kiwi blogs out there. But well better late than never!
    Are you still adding blogs for this year or not yet? I’ve had my blog http://thefrenchieescapes.com/ for a bit less than a year now and I tend to publish regularly while still having my full-time job! A lot to come for 2016 🙂 I’ll keep looking at your website for sure. Cheers

  32. We are 6 weeks into travelling around Australia in our 4wd and camper trailer visiting the most remote parts of the country. We are new to blogging and you can follow our story at theyoungnomads.com.au

  33. Great list, could you add me please I’m http://www.gourmetgetaways.com.au I write about food, wine and travel. Usually one recipe per week, one travel story and one story related to either food, travel, accommodation reviews, vineyards, restaurants or activities to do when traveling.

    My blog was first published in 2010.
    P.S I’ve even got NZ travel stories, vineyards and restaurant reviews on my site ?
    Thanks

  34. Hey,

    Would love to be considered for your list. Probably won’t make the cut very high but would be nicely surprised if I did.

    I’m Dan and my travel blog is called loneXplorer (http://lonexplorer.com.au) and I have focussed a lot on tours of Europe from the well known tour companies like Topdeck and Busabout as well as hotel reviews and general travel ideas.

    Thanks for your consideration 🙂

  35. Hey Anne, WOW! Never knew there was so many Aussie/Kiwi bloggers about. Will be diving into the list the next couple weeks.

    You can find my blog over at (Waikanae, born and bred) at http://www.tikitouringkiwi.com for inclusion. Blogging about my adventures around the world. Keep up the hustle!

  36. Hi Anne, my name is Evie and I’m traveling through Asia with my six year old. We blog at http://www.mumpacktravel.com.au The blog is only a year old but I just checked the DA and it’s 24 so we’re starting to get somewhere, and we meet all of your criteria. Hope we can be included in future on your awesome list! Thanks! Evie & Em

  37. Hi Anne, what a heap of work you have done. I am so happy to have found this list of bloggers. Now for the fun of checking out and reading these great blogs. There is quite a bit of night time reading here!!
    My blog http://www.afrenchcollection.com is about traveling in France, French culture and all things French related.
    I live in Newcastle, Australia and bought a 150yr old country holiday home in Brittany, France about 7 years ago.
    I blog about travelling through France, our family adventures and mishaps and all stuff French!
    Cheers Annette

  38. Hi Anne, great list and fun to read more Aussie blogs.

    I would like for you to add http://www.lavidaglobal.com please. We are Aussies who blog about how to live the global life while working full time.
    Also have a section I am growing called Our Aussie Backyard featuring things around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

    Regards, Dean

  39. Hi, I wonder if we will count as an Australian Travel Blog since we are only writing about Latin America. We are both Australians, from Byron Shire in NNSW, and overland in our own vehicle along the Pan-American Highway and beyond. Our first trip was 2006-2009, now we are back since 2014. All documented on our website dare2go.com

  40. Anne,
    Wow, what a list! And it must take a while to compile. I found some I did not know and I found some I did not know were Australian/NZ. We are an Australian blog, please keep us in mind for the next round.

  41. Hi Anne, Great list! You have clearly spent a lot of time compiling it. Could my blog be considered for the next edition please? It is an Australian family blog. Hooroo, Jane
