About Craig Tansley

Craig Tansley grew up in Polynesia and Byron Bay (and his mum lives on a boat sailing up and down the Queensland coast) so he never had a choice – spending time finding action and adventure in the sunshine is part of his DNA. Now based in Melbourne, Craig’s a full-time travel writer working for some of the country’s biggest publications and websites. He’s on the road at least half of the year – home’s just where his mail goes to.
