About Amanda Dardanis

A newspaper and magazine journalist for 25 years, Amanda Dardanis spent her 20s in London; her 30s (and most of her 40s) in Athens; and has now swapped the year-round summer lifestyle of the Athens Riviera for the year-round summer groove of her native Brisbane. “Australia has changed so much while I’ve been away. I can’t wait to dive in and discover what my country has in store for me in my 50s – both as a writer and a returnee.” Amanda is in her happiest place when documenting pop culture trends and uncovering great new places to eat, drink, shop and travel to.
