About us


Welcome to the new website of Travel Writers Radio, heard on 87.8 FM in Melbourne, On the Net and also on SoundCloud. We broadcast live every Wednesday between 5 pm and 7 pm from the Melbourne studion of J-AIR.  This website now incorporates the FoodWineTravelTips site previously produced by our team, of food, wine, lifestyle and travel journalists in Australia and offshore.

Travel Writers Radio is a growing media outlet with international reach, but with a distinct local perspective. If you’re an active published journalist, photojournalist, editor, author or broadcaster in the food/wine, travel, hospitality or meetings industry, or member of a recognised professional association, you may qualify to join PALAT – the Professional Association of Lifestyle and Travel Writers.  PALAT is in the unique position of having its own independent media outlet with professional members who produce and deliver all locakl and interbnational content for Travel Writers Radio.

With an increasing number of journalists being made redundant by mew technologies in Australian newsrooms and the rise of citizen journalism, we offer upskilling to members who would like to move into radio broadcasting. As a member you can apply to become a reporter or producer for our radio program contributing news, reviews, travel experiences, culinary interviews and your top tips for travellers.

Our members literally circle the globe covering the world’s most interesting experiences for leisure and business travelers, without fear or favour. Our members’ food wine and travel articles and photographs appear in some of the world’s best known publications and online communities. So we think we’re well placed to share some of our insider information with you to make your experiences in the world of hospitality better informed and more pleasurable.  Think of us as professional travel whisperers…
