Kate Ausburn


Hi, I'm Kate.

I write, take photos, and build things on the internet.

I help businesses with their digital strategy, content creation, and search engine optimisation (SEO).

The work I do makes for a lot of time on the laptop... that's one of the reasons why, on weekends, I hike.

Sometimes I visit somewhere new, a lot of the time I make the most of my favourite nearby national parks — that's what I share on this website…

Living in Sydney means being spoiled for choice when it comes to nearby national parks — with Royal National a short way south, the Blue Mountains a couple of hours west, and a half dozen others not too far off either.

A couple of weekends out of each month I'll pull on my hiking boots, pack my camera, and head out — often for a day trip,  and sometimes for the entire weekend. Long trips to far flung places are 👌🏻, but I’m all for making the most of what’s closer to home too — like wherever I can get to in a weekend.

Other stuff I'm into

Road-trips to the country, reading, writing, these guys, finding new places to photograph, and cooking plant-based meals.


📖 Right now I'm reading No Time to Spare by Ursula K. Le Guin, as well as Sam Twyford-Moore's The Rapids. Both are thoughtful examinations of life.

📺 I binge-watched my way through Mad Men and am not sure what to do with myself now the Don Draper dream is over…

🎧 Remember the first season of Start Up? Well, Alex Blumberg is back talking business and life on Gimlet’s new show, Without Fail — “because success and failure, they’re not as far apart as people think. They’re always right next to each other, and it’s hard when you’re in the middle of it, to tell which way you’re headed.” Alex’s recent chat with Ira Glass is a cracker.
