The Accidental Australian is a long-established Australian and expat blog, run by American expat Katie, who found herself moving to Sydney on a whim. We provide irreverent musings of a life down under and travel advice for expats and adventurers, with a focus on Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

 

Why The Accidental Australian?

We are about two things here: helping expats and unusual and quirky Australian travel experiences. With the exchange rate strongly favouring the American dollar and low international airfares, there has never been a better time for Americans to travel to Australia. Whether coming over for a working holiday, relocation visa, or just for a holiday, travellers are keen to learn about Australia and make the most of their time here.

With a blog focusing on Sydney and Australian travel, and expat issues, as Katie is originally from the US and now residing in Sydney, most readers come from Australia, UK, and the US, and are either residing in Australia, or planning a move down under.

If your market is Australian tourism and/or the expat market, I think we would be a good fit.
I am interested in a wide range of collabs, including reviews, press trips, contests or sponsored posts, and freelance writing projects.

The Accidental Australian is featured on several high traffic expat websites, driving traffic from interested expats. With a large social media following and high blog traffic, my readers are interested and avid social media users. As we continue to grow, The Accidental Australian is becoming a premium destination for unique travel ideas and expat planning. We also rank as #30 in the Top 100 Expat Blogs and Websites for Expatriates, and hope to climb higher up the list in 2018!

 

Freelance writing

A talented freelance writer and recent finalist in Navigator Paper’s ‘Around the World in Eighty Pages’ international travel writing contest, Katie can make your product, experience, or hotel come to life through fun and engaging writing.

I have recently worked with Expat.com and MOVE Guides on creating Australian specific content, and am available for a range of long-term or short-term freelance projects. Other recent work has been with GoOverseas.com, Citizen Femme, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and She’s Wanderful.

 

Companies & Brands worked with in the last 12 months:

We are proud to have worked with a range of Australian and international brands, creating content to showcase some of the best Australian tourism has to offer! These include:

• Rottnest Express
• Sydney BridgeClimb
• Webjet
• Harbourside Cruises, Sydney

 

Who Do We Work With?

I am interested in honest and meaningful relationships that will benefit us both, a ‘quick dollar’ is not my endgame- rather, I want to provide my readers with information, ideas, and tips that will help them love Australia as much as I do, and will hopefully encourage them to check out your amazing business or product.

I’ll only recommend something I really enjoy myself, and I am always truthful with readers.

Please feel free to contact me for more information, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Let’s Work Together
