Augustine Zycher

In my career, I have worked as a foreign correspondent for The Age, Melbourne, a producer for CNN in the Middle East, director and producer of documentary films, an investigative journalist and speechwriter. I am also a Director of  Presentation Strategies together with my sister Rosalie.  We coach people to become more effective communicators.

WHY WE SET UP WomanGoingPlaces

We wanted to tell  the stories of remarkable Australian women – women from 30 to infirmity. Since women become more invisible as we age, we chose to put the spotlight on these women.

Some of the women are in the public eye, others are not.

They all chronicle the diversity of our backgrounds and experiences as Women of Oz.

The women we feature tell us their stories, as well as their favourite travel destinations. We use the theme of travel as a common denominator as we all seem to share a love of travel. The result is a collection of great places to visit, whether travelling with family, friends or solo.

Our purpose is to create a community of women who share a love of travel and a lifetime of experiences.

A community in which women are admired and inspired.

WomanGoingPlaces creates original articles and video.


Founder & Co-Editor WomanGoingPlaces

My career has taken me around the world as a theatre and opera director,  actor, dramaturge, and as a programmer and administrator for The New York International Festival of the Arts.

All these experiences increased my enthusiasm for exploring the world. What lingers in memory is not only the beauty and variety of new places, but most of all, the people you meet on the way, the connections and the friendships you develop – and the insights travel can bring.

For that reason, I’ve always been interested to hear about the travel experiences of others – what has made a place or a trip meaningful for them.
