The GAB named “Start-up to Watch” celebrates ¼ million views and 20,000 social media followers
After receiving significant film, radio, and online media coverage as a start-up to watch, The GAB (The Great Aussie Bite) celebrates ¼ million views and 20,000 social media followers. Located at www.thegab.com.au, the GAB is an online resource for unique and exciting experiences all over Australia.
The GAB’s ever-growing, Australia-wide editorial team comprises 50 professional travel journalists who have worked for The Herald Sun, Sydney Morning Herald, The Times, Channel 7, Channel 9, Channel 10, ABC, 2GB, 2UE, Foxtel, NBN, Network Ten, Traveler’s Digest, Broadsheet, Time Out and many other internationally renowned publications. Each writer seeks out interesting experiences in their region.
“The GAB’s ethos is about encouraging people to not get complacent with their lives. To do that thing, take that chance, make that trip.”
The team has already covered hundreds of food, drink, health, spa, adventure, culture, luxury and travel experiences. These include learning to fly a helicopter, a day spa where you get your body painted in chocolate, a detox retreat, learning to become a stunt driver, a distillery where you make a bottle of gin to your own recipe, and a horseback winery tour.
The GAB founder and editor, Christina Wylie, is an award-winning journalist, food writer and radio host whose work has been featured in The Times, Time Out, Traveler’s Digest, Broadsheet, Wining & Dining and countless other print and online media outlets. Christina founded The GAB after almost a decade of working as an international journalist in London, Hong Kong, South Africa, Thailand and Australia.
“The GAB is for people who like to do things out of the ordinary,” Christina says, “It’s for those who who fear the norm – those who are always looking for the next adventure. The GAB’s ethos is about encouraging people to not get complacent with their lives. To do that thing, take that chance, make that trip.
“We have been so overwhelmed with the public’s response to The GAB. We had no idea it would grow as fast as it has. I think it must be down to the amazing team of writers we have, the exciting experiences that we’ve covered, but most importantly I think people resonate with our message. We’re all about making the most of life.”
