Travel journalist Fleur Bainger has spent the first half of her career combing the outback for ABC radio, and the second half flitting from Western Australia to wherever she found a solid story injected with adventure. She’s swum the Kimberley’s remote coral gardens by moonlight, commando-crawled Gnaraloo’s sand dunes to spy on egg laying sea turtles, squeezed through narrow cavities in Margaret River’s cave systems and cheered on Heston Blumenthal as he tried to surf WA’s waves.

She pens travel features, reviews restaurants, delivers travel APP content and updates travel guide books for publications including The Telegraph (UK), Australian Traveller, Escape, Australian Geographic, Gourmet Traveller and more.
