Mister Weekender is created by Jaharn Giles.

Born in Sydney and raised in Brisbane, I now call the Sunshine Coast in Australia home. My career has given me over twelve years experience as a publicist and digital consultant working in London, Sydney and Brisbane. And my love for adventure and nature saw me travel at every opportunity.

When I returned home to Australia after working in London for two years, I spent every weekend hiking a different trail, camping in the wilderness, and road tripping to somewhere new and unknown. Inspired by my adventures and armed with a suitcase full of experiences, I officially launched Mister Weekender in November 2013.

In this short amount of time I have travelled around Australia, Canada, Iceland, Morocco, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam, Peru, Japan, Sri Lanka, Dubai, United States, Bali, Maldives, Greece and more.

I have also worked with many brands including Qantas, Kathmandu, Microsoft, Skyscanner, Hilton, United Airlines, ASOS, Marriott, Trip Advisor, Virgin Australia, STA, and more. I have also been featured in The Collective, Australian Traveller, Daily Mail Online, Cosmopolitan, Real Living, Get Lost, Qantas Travel Insider, Jetstar Magazine and multiple websites as an expert travel blogger. And I regularly speak at events and host workshops.
