Using curiosity as the fuel for travel, the Kid Bucket List family are on a quest to learn and discover through family adventures. Based on the premise that travel is more than just a plane trip, the family seek out opportunities to inquire and discover in their own backyard, their city and afar. From milking a cow to catching yabbies, visiting shrines to exploring museums, learning a new folk dance to eating grasshoppers, this family have developed the ultimate Kid Bucket List and want you to play along too!
WHO IS THE KID BUCKET LIST?
The Kid Bucket List family are your average Sydney family with an exceptional thirst for knowledge. Leah, a school executive by day, curates the words and images for the Kid Bucket List. T does the planning and ensures everything is flowing well to offset Leah’s spontaneous impulse to drop everything and travel. Tween Striker is the family foodie, seeking out new cuisines and tastes to try on each adventure, where the youngest, Sunshine is the daredevil of the family, ready to try anything that will give her an adrenaline rush.
WHAT DO WE DO AT KID BUCKET LIST?
The Kid Bucket List curates experiences and resources that families can utilise to develop their own adventures. Showcasing opportunities available to families in the near and now, developing destination guides with a family travel focus, and capturing how to weave experience into lifestyles is a strength that has built the Kid Bucket List community.
All content on the Kid Bucket List is written by the Kid Bucket List team. Imagery and video content is also produced by the team on location. Destinations and attraction coverage is typically only covered if we have experienced in ourselves.
WHO DO WE WORK WITH?
The Kid Bucket List has become one of Sydney’s favourite family adventure sites and is regularly sought out for partnerships and sponsored posts. We are currently Merlin Ambassadors, have been sought out by ABC radio for family travel focused segments, Out and About with Kids magazine bloggers, Kidspot travel writers, and work throughout each school holiday period with the Sydney Opera House.

Deborah and partner Simon Mallender are passionate ocean advocates and launched Diveplanit to encourage more people to get underwater and start exploring. Diveplanit’s mission is to create more ocean ambassadors – people with a greater understanding, appreciation and advocacy for our oceans.
The idea for DivePlanIt came about after Simon and Deb’s first Big Excursion – to Palau, when they discovered that detailed, practical information about the rather remote destination they were visiting was harder to find than it should be.
We provide rich media content on snorkelling and scuba diving destinations and dive sites, the dive centres that serve them, and all the information you need on how to travel to those destinations, where to stay, where to eat – even what to do on your no-dive days. The content is also designed to give you an appreciation of the marine environment, underwater habitat and what sea creatures can be found there.
Contented Traveller is a site for fit, free and financial travellers, who love experiences and culture. As award winning professional travel writers at Contented Traveller, we love to travel and to share our expertise with you. We are Paula and Gordon.

This is why Contented Traveller is so successful. We know you have worked hard, and that you have earned it to Just Travel. We also know that one size does not fit all, and like you, we love the diversity that travel experiences can offer.
It is about staying at a beautiful 5-star hotel in Paris. It is about sharing a treehouse with a giraffe in a wildlife lodge in Canberra, Australia. It is about staying in a shabby chic houseboat in Amsterdam, a ryokan in Japan, and a cave house in Goreme, Turkey. We like to ski, to have backstreet massages in Chiang Mai and to have a drink with locals, eating food from the streets and from high-end restaurants, and we love meeting people.
While we always travel together, we don’t always do everything together .. we are free to explore different things.
Our readers are very diverse coming from the US, Australia, and the UK predominantly. While we would have thought, our readers would be our age bracket, we have a substantial readership who “want to be like us, when they grow up.”

We believe when you explore like this and get a little of the main road you have more opportunity to interact with locals and get to know the city better.

TheTravelTart.com attracts a global readership across a wide demographic who are interested in travel destinations and experiences around the world – including budget, luxury, offbeat, and adventure travel.
But mainly, I like to write about the funny, offbeat, and downright strange aspects of world travel today – as travel wasn’t meant to be taken seriously!
Who Is The Travel Tart?
Well, I’m a self-proclaimed travel addict who will find any excuse to go travelling. I discovered I really enjoyed travelling the world when I was sent to a former war zone for work – Kosovo – as my first venture outside of Australia and New Zealand. This created a habit of visiting places that most package tourists avoid like the plague. I’ve since travelled to over 50 countries over six continents – nowhere near enough! When travelling, I like risking my life by utilising barely road-worthy forms of transport such as African mini-buses, rust bucket Cairo cabs, and flatulent camels.
What I Can Offer
• A proven track record for attracting long term targeted internet traffic that has an indefinite shelf life
• Promotion of your brand via blog traffic and multiple social media platforms, followed up by statistics and reporting to help you measure effectiveness.
Who I’ve Worked With
I’ve worked with high profile travel brands such as Visit Britain, Tourism South Africa, G Adventures, TripAdvisor, Qantas and Emirates. I use photos, videos and social media extensively to ‘show’ the story and attraction. I have also interviewed travel related personalities, such as Rick Stein, Tony Wheeler from Lonely Planet, Simon Reeve and many others.
Where I’ve appeared
I’ve been featured in a number of high profile publications, including Travel +Leisure, USA Today, Huffington Post, Men’s Health, US News, Times of India, Yahoo! Travel, Fox News USA, Reader’s Digest and the Sydney Morning Herald.
Anthony Bianco – Travel Writer and Blogger
We are Tommo & Megsy from Food Fun Travel, two roaming food and travel photographers, writers & podcasters with an insatiable passion for seeking out culinary deliciousness. We’ve visited 87+ countries during our quest to find the ultimate Food Worth Traveling For, and have no intentions of stopping.
Food Fun Travel Blog
On Food Fun Travel we share our fascinating food discoveries from all over the world, to help others plan their next perfect foodie vacation. Whether it be eating on the streets of Calcutta eating 50 cent curry and naan bread baked in an old oil drum converted into a tandoori oven. Or it be Michelin star excellence that is almost too pretty to eat, we travel the lengths of the earth to find it, photograph it and then eat it.
- Degustation meals. Finding the perfect bite-sized balance between local food and wine, or beer – we’re not picky. We love it all!
- Food Guides. What to eat and where. Gastronomy guides for the virgin traveler, or perhaps someone looking for that new dish they are yet to discover.
- Food tours and cooking classes. Getting your hands dirty and learning how to make these unique international dishes for yourself. Or perhaps touring a country in search of the best of the best of a particular countries cuisine.
- Weird and Wonderful Foods of the World. Not everything looks palatable. We are willing to put our palates and stomachs on the line to try some of the weirder traditional foods out there
The Dish Podcast
On our NEW food podcast “The Dish” we uncover the stories behind the world’s most famous dishes. Join us and our expert guests as we reveal tasty facts, unknown foodie secrets and more. We also release bonus episodes of “What to Eat in ______”, where we reveal the best local cuisines to eat in featured destinations around the world. (set to be released early 2018)
Aside from our blog & podcast, we have been featured in Forbes, News.com.au, That’s Life Magazine, Yahoo Travel, ABC Radio Brisbane, American Express & National Geographic Traveller (just to name a few). We’ve also been featured in an episode of House Hunters International.
Food inspires all ages but our main audience sits in the 25-45 year old bracket.
Raised in Australia but born with wanderlust, Keri Hedrick and her husband have been globetrotting for over a decade.
Thinking travel days would be numbered once kids came along in 2010 (aka “Our Globetrotter”), nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, it spurred the adventure on! The pace and daily itineraries have certainly changed but we love the opportunities that travel with children has brought.
With Keri leaving a corporate job in London behind in 2012, the Globetrotters blog was established to help share our stories and experiences, with a real focus on the practicalities that families need to consider. We talk not only about travel with children, but drill into expatriate life and “growing up global”.
What we do at Our Globetrotters
Our aim is to help other families share our passion for exploring as a family, we are in the business of Creating Confident World Travellers.
We are now based full time in the UAE but spend 2-3 months of each year travelling, predominantly in Australia, SE Asia and regionally around the Middle East.
Like many, our blog started as a personal journal, sharing the tips and secrets we had learnt to make life on the road and in the air with young kids easier. It has expanded into a multi-faceted blogging business where we have worked with local businesses to promote attractions and products, through to large multi-national hotel chains in the Middle East and SE Asia promoting their family friendly offering. We have also worked with several start up companies looking to launch products to the family travel market. Keri ghost writes for a local expat publication in their travel section.
How we can help our clients
The companies we work with seek our voice to attract the family audience. We have become a well-established name in expat communities and our reviews and recommendations are honest and trusted.
We are available to work on sponsored posts or campaigns, destination marketing, hotel and product reviews and ambassadorships. We can also supply reviews or freelance articles to appear on client’s websites.
Our readers come from all corners of the world, predominantly English speaking countries; US, Australia, UK and Canada are our largest readership. We currently receive 25,000 monthly page views with a social following of 40,000.
Our social followers are largely from expatriate communities like ourselves. They already have a little bit of adventure in them, but seek inspiration and courage to keep exploring. They are predominantly female (the key holiday decision maker in the household), well educated, affluent and like to seek out independent adventures with a touch of luxury. Our search traffic sees a slightly different demographic, they are predominantly parents of young families seeking answers to practical questions on travel, particularly flying, transportation and travel products.
Passionate about making sure travel opportunities are available to everyone, Keri is also the founder of Family Travel in the Middle East and co-founder of niche family travel planning site Little City Trips
