Rob McFarland

In 2004 I abandoned a sensible career in IT to travel, write and eat home-brand supermarket food. Now I'm a full-time travel writer and divide my time between Sydney, New York and Europe. I'm a regular contributor to the Sydney Morning Herald, Sun-Herald, West Australian, New Zealand Herald, San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian, Luxury Travel and GQ magazine. I'm a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers and a judge for the annual Gourmet Traveller, International Traveller and Hotel Management awards.
