Award-winning travel journalist Tracey Croke is an expert in following whims and getting lost. Her woeful map-reading skills are overlooked as long as she brings back a good story.
Special interests in bike-gallivanting and stereotype-squashing have seen her hike through the mountains of post-conflict Afghanistan, search for rideable mountain bike tracks in the Ethiopian Highlands and get rescued by nomads in Kyrgyzstan’s Talas Range
Tracey qualified in Journalism and media law at the London School of Journalism. Her articles and photographs have been published in national newspapers and magazines in the UK and Australia.
In 2017, she won Best Adventure Story at The Australian Travel Writers’ Awards for Excellence. For three years on the trot, she has been a finalist in The NRMA Kennedy Awards for Outstanding Travel Journalism. In 2015, her photo essay, “A Portrait to Keep” made the finals of The Walkley’s Storyology slide night – part of Sydney’s “Head On” photo festival.
