about us

what we're about


A collective passport is a special type of passport that allows a group of people to go on a journey together without having separate documents.

Inspired by this idea, the Passport Collective, is a website created solely to share destination guides, expat information and local information, particularly on Australia and the UK. We want you to have the very best information and local insider tips to plan the best vacation possible. The posts are written by us and by locals we’ve met in our travels to ensure you get the very best, most interesting and most relevant information. We also want you to get off the tourist track at times and visit locations that only a local knows about.

Let us bring you along on our adventures and help you have your own too.

Explore our city (Melbourne) or maybe even explore your own. Our destination guides have been written to maximise your experience and help you plan the best possible trip. Where possible the guide is written by a local, or is from a destination we’ve lived / travelled to.

capturing moments

Memories are what travel is made of, but a great photograph is one of the best souvenirs of a trip of a lifetime. Improve your photography and capture your travel memories beautifully with our guides and hints.


Laura about

Hi, I am Laura a Melbournian who has recently moved back to Australia after living in the UK with my husband Pete.

We met in Australia around 5 years ago and started travelling together not long after. 

A career as a primary teacher has allowed me plenty of time to explore, however at the moment I’m a full time Mum and adjusting to travel as a family.

I’ve visited 36 countries, and I’m an avid weekend warrior when at home. You’ll also find me over at Little Big Tales Photography, my Melbourne family photography biz.

I look forward to encouraging you to get out and about whether it be solo, coupled, with friends or with kids in tow.

Pete about

Hi, I’m Pete. I’m from Perth in Australia, but lived in Melbourne for a few years before our time in the UK.

​My passions are sailing and field hockey. These have are on the been on the backburner whilst we were travelling around Europe, but I hope you show you more of the Aussie lifestyle now we are back home.

My favourite trip to date as been visiting vineyards in Bordeaux as wine is another passion of mine. I’ve written a post all about it.

I enjoy living an active lifestyle and hope to share this passion with you.
