CHRISTINE KING – FOUNDER, EDITOR & PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, my name is Christine and I’m the founder and editor of this travel blog and with an educated background in Travel & Tourism (Diploma of Tourism) and a love and passion for photography, I hope to bring you the best travel experiences of my home town Melbourne, Australia and abroad.

I have had the opportunity to photograph some amazing events such as Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Week, The Melbourne Cup Racing Carnival, Sportsgirl Autumn/Winter Collection, Aussie Millions Poker Championship Party, David Jones Autumn/Winter Launch and The Melbourne Logies to name a few.

In the midst of it all, I have managed to snap a few celebrities on the way. Some to name drop are: Victoria Secrets Model’s Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Hawkins, Diesel, Noiseworks, Shannon Noll, The Screaming Jets, The Rogue Traders, Megan Gale, Serena and Venue Williams, Jeff Kennet, Dale Thomas, Rebecca Judd, Collette Dinnigan, Shane Warne and Holly Madison.

MEVRIL KING – PHOTOGRAPHER & SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIST

Hi, my name is Mevril (people call me Mev) and I help assist my lovely wife Christine in all her photographic needs.  Photography and social engagement is an important priority to us, so my role is to make sure we capture every experience to inspire you to visit locations we have really enjoyed.  I also handle all the logistics and social media for the website.

LARA KING – MODEL & EXPLORER

Hi, my name is Lara and I’m 4 years old.  I love exploring Melbourne with my mum and dad and my favourite thing to do is to spend the weekend at a Hotel and go swimming.  I sometimes get frustrated with my parents for making me stand and pose for all the photos, but then again, it’s a great way to capture the memories, as my mum always says.

      

AND TOGETHER we explore in and around Melbourne (and occasionally abroad) to capture the most exciting and interesting places to inspire you to get out there and see what Melbourne has to offer.

 

ABOUT THE WEBSITE

Founded in October 2013, christinekings.com.au has become an essential website for anyone planning a trip or visiting Melbourne and abroad.  From hotel reviews, to attractions, to restaurants and travel tips – our blog has all the resources you need to create some memorable moments and great experiences.

We decided to create this space since having our daughter as a great way to document all our travel and experiences.  We want to show her as much of the world as possible, starting in our home town of Melbourne, Australia and this website kind of holds us now holds us responsible to achieving that for her.

We also wanted to connect with all the families out there who think it’s impossible to travel with a young child.  We want to show our viewers as much of Melbourne and the world as possible including hotels (luxury, boutique and standard), attractions, restaurants and include lots of travel tips and lifestyle products along the way as well.

Thank you for taking the time to read our adventures and your support of reading our blog and sharing our tips means the world to us. Thank you.
