Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogs for 2017

Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Bloggers for 2017

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the ranked list of the top Australian and New Zealand travel blogs.  I have assessed and ranked 212 travel blogs (plus an additional 25 travel blogs who approached me after this list was published), and I have also provided more specific breakdowns for top travel blogs with Australian, New Zealand, family, adventure, 4WD, Motorcycle, RV, Caravan and Campervan and drone categories.

This is now my fourth year of producing this annual post and my past efforts have been very well received.  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 138 blogs – this time around I have assessed 212 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 and I will add your blog to my list to be reviewed next time (noting that I only produce these posts once per year…).

Travel Blog Assessment Criteria

My blog assessment and ranking approach includes 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…  :-).  I had a number of cases where travel blogs which previously met this criteria needed to be removed from the list, as they no longer had any recent clear connection with either Australia or New Zealand – think expats who were in country for a while and who have since moved on.
  2. The blog must be active, with travel related articles published in the past three months (and yes, I check every site :)).
  3. The blog must have a substantial amount of travel articles – at least 50% of the content in the last three months 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 of authoritative backlinks 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.  Where a site has recently rebranded and redirected to a new domain name I have used their previous domain name ranking to assess their overall ranking.

So there you have it, the ranked list of the top 212 Australian and New Zealand travel blogs.  I hope you have found some new blogs to follow!

I have also had quite a few additional travel bloggers reach out to me after publishing this post, so rather than make changes to the main lineup I am adding a separate section with their details below, and rolling their blogs into the other short lists below where they fit those categories.  Note that I am not planning to do any further updates to this list, so if you tell me about your blog from now on I will ensure that you are considered for the 2018 list.

Best Travel Blogs for Sydney, Melbourne and Perth

As you can expect many of the Australian travel blogs also are the best source for Australian travel content – and this is mostly true – so rather than give you the list of the 181 travel blogs in this space, I will focus a bit further onto travel blogs which provide specific content about Sydney, Melbourne and Perth content.  To be included in these lists the travel blogs needed to contain a high quantity of recent content for the specific destination, not just ‘I had three articles from my occasional visit’ about this specific destination.

Best Australia and New Zealand Adventure Travel Blogs

I have defined Australian and New Zealand adventure travel blogs as ones which regularly post adventurous content – which includes mountaineering, scuba diving, rock climbing, hiking, bushwalking, tramping, overland journeys to off the beaten tourist track countries, and any other adventurous activity.

Best Australian and New Zealand Travel Blog Drone Operators

A new area which many international travel bloggers have been offering services is through the use of drones to further be able to highlight destinations through aeriel videography.  As a result as I assessed each travel blog  I kept note of which travel bloggers were offering drone services.  You may surprised to realise that I was only able to identify four Australian and New Zealand travel blogs which offer these services – so definitely some potential for bloggers to consider whether to add these services to their portfolio.  (If I missed you please let me know in the comments and I will add your blog to this list).

I'm a Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogger for 2017

I'm a Top Australian and New Zealand Travel Blogger for 2017

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
