Zach1. Tell us about your illustration for Around Australia in 30 Places.

I’ve done an illustration of the Penguin Parade in Phillip Island. It’s a very popular tourist attraction where people can watch penguins waddle their way from the sea to their burrows. I thought it would be fun to illustrate a parade of penguins getting tickets at a booth to visit the beach, with the tourists looking on, so I made the picture look comical.

2. If you could travel anywhere in Australia, where would it be?

I would love to visit northern Queensland and see the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforests.

3. What would be your No.1 travel tip?

Bring a notebook and keep a journal of your trip, so that you can record your favourite memories of your trip.

4. What’s something you can’t live without in your suitcase?

I love reading, so I can’t live without books, especially when there’s a long journey in the car.


Around Australia in 30 Places is available for pre-order now.
