founder

Mister Weekender is created by me, Jaharn Giles.

Born in Sydney and raised in Brisbane, I now call Noosa Heads in Australia home. I live with my husband Jason and our little baby boy Dusty in our beach house, which we designed and built in 2017.

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 and travelling around Europe 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, Wotif.com and more. I have also been featured in The Collective, Australian Traveller, Daily Mail Online, Cosmopolitan, Real Living, Get Lost, Qantas Travel Insider, and Jetstar Magazine.
