Do Australians prefer to travel locally or overseas?


Bohemian traveller, novelist and fashion writer Lee Tulloch says statistically Australian’s have been spending more money overseas.

“I think the push to travel overseas has been huge in recent years and we’ve been getting on planes in increasing numbers and we’re not stopping,” Lee said.

“Having said that I think there are lots of short breaks that people can take in Australia.”

Regionally, Lee’s favourite place for a short break is Tasmania for both family and landscape.

“The trips that I’ve done around Tasmania to Saffire Freycinet, is absolutely beautiful and looking at those mountains there is a differnt landscape now. We’re use to looking at Uluru and the Gold Coast. ”

“It’s a charming place with lots of quirky things.”

About Lee Tulloch

Lee Tulloch was born in Melbourne and has spent her life writing about fashion and popular culture. She has written extensively on the subject for international publications such as Vogue, Elle, Jalouse, Harper’s Bazaar and New York magazine. While still a child, she became the founding editor of Harper’s Bazaar Australia but was dismissed after nine issues for being a little too creative.

In 1985 she moved from Sydney to New York, where she wrote her first novel, Fabulous Nobodies and with her photographer husband, Anthony Amos, she chose a bohemian life, moving between Australia, New York and Paris for more than a decade with their young daughter, Lolita. In Paris, she began her second novel, Wraith, a gothic tale of a dead supermodel who comes back to haunt her personal assistant.  In 2001 she published her third novel, Two Shanes, a comedy of errors about an Australian surfer on Manhattan.

On September 11 2001 she was evacuated from her Tribeca home and left her beloved Manhattan for the relative peace of a Sydney beach. Her fourth novel, The Cutting, a murder mystery set on the Australian coast, was published in 2003. A collection of her fashion essays, Perfect Pink Polish, was published in 2005. Her last work was the darkly erotic novel, The Woman in the Lobby (May 2008) and her latest work, to be published in 2014/2015, is Dorothea Goes Wild.
