About us

Who are The Hungry Travellers and Why so hungry?

Here we are. We’ve been hiking, camping, eating and generally annoying each other through the Mackay & Whitsunday Region for the last 7 years. We met when we both started a new job at a newly opened vet clinic, and although we didn’t hit it off initially, we soon discovered we had crazy, similar passions (mainly a desire to eat everything in sight) and a desire to explore the world, never wasting a day. Fast-forward a few years and we’re in the midst of raising families, juggling careers and still finding time to do what we love together (#mumlife), and now we get to share it with you!

We started a Facebook page back in Oct 2014, wanting to share our adventures with those that kept asking where we were going! A few thousand followers later and we’ve realised it’s time to collate our adventures, in an easy to search forum. Our vision is for families to have a super simple resource they can go to straight away, with genuine reviews and real photos when planning somewhere to eat, a day trip, weekend adventure or a complete holiday on the Central QLD Coast. Time and money is precious for many and it’s not something we want you to waste on less than fantastic experiences.

We’re certainly not professional photographers, journalists or social media techs. We simply hope to show that you can still enjoy life’s journey and explore the world with your kids no matter what age, with a little forward-thinking and some inspiration!

Our reviews and posts are all completely of our own opinion and we will only ever share places that a) we genuinely believe you will love and b) we would go back in a heart beat. We do occasionally visit places on famils with local tourism boards or are asked to visit locations to give a review. Negative reviews aren’t our thing so we just won’t post if we don’t have a great experience. If we wouldn’t go back, we won’t send you there!

So dig deep, pick a restaurant, camp spot or activity, pack up the family and get ready to join us on your own adventures! #thehungrytravellers #seetheworld
