About Australia Obsessed

Hi, I’m Carryn. The blogger behind Australia Obsessed.

I’ll be taking you along on all my adventures across Australia, sharing stories of the best places to stay, things to do, and how you can escape the city and discover hidden gems off the beaten path.

From scuba diving to camping, surfing to hiking, I’m all about the outdoor life – and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty. But this girl also likes a bit of luxe! I’m a foodie and wine traveller and live for experiences that set my heart on fire.

Expat diaries

I’m proudly South African! After a few years jet setting across the world where I taught English in South Korea and lived the island life in Bali, I decided to head down under.

I know first-hand what it’s like moving to Australia. From all the admin and documentation, the 3-year visa process and the incredibly high cost of living, I finally made it and now call Sydney home. Despite the long road it took me to get here, it was all worth it and I can’t wait to help others as they plan their big move to Australia.

Do you have any questions or simply want to say hi?
