About Jessica Hyem

A Queenslander born and bred, Jessica travelled much of the world before exploring the wonders of her own backyard. Swapping international long-hauls for propeller planes to Queensland’s Outback, she has seen more of this awesome state in her first three months at Tourism Queensland than most people do in their entire lives. While her colleagues think her hobby is weird and will probably send her to an early grave, Jess has made it her personal mission to sample a bowl of potato wedges in as many Queensland towns as possible.
