Cara Waters

I'm a Melbourne based journalist.  I'm the small business editor at Fairfax for The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, Brisbane Times, Canberra Times and WA Today.  

Previous roles have included editing SmartCompany, working as a journalist at The Financial Times in London on the website FTAdviser and on a casual basis as a journalist for the Sunday Times website in London.   I have also written for The Guardian, Time Out and The Oxford Mail. 

I also write the blog Gourmet-Chick.  I started Gourmet-Chick in 2008 and it is now one of Australia's most popular food and travel blogs. In 2014 it was ranked second in a list of Melbourne’s top 200+ food bloggers.  In 2013 Sunday Style magazine included me as one of its “top notch bloggers”.  They said “Waters chronicles her search for Melbourne’s best eating and drinking, along with travel tales and recipes. Engaging and well-written, Gourmet Chick posts regularly – but isn’t caught up in ambulance-chasing openings.  A good read.”
