About Christine Courtenay:

Christine Courtenay grew up on a cattle property in North Eastern Victoria. After university, Christine’s passion for travel led her to co-found Australian Himalayan Expeditions (now World Expeditions), a pioneering trekking and adventure travel company. Christine then established her own travel consultancy, Go Wild, and in 2003, she became a founding director of the Australian Himalayan Foundation, an NGO dedicated to health, education and environment projects in the Himalayas.

Christine married beloved Australian author Bryce Courtenay in 2011, and today continues to champion her late husband’s amazing literary legacy.

    Dearest Christine, Bryce married ‘big’ as well, a lady big in heart and love and generosity. Thank you, dear friend, for sharing this. It brings back memories for me too. Now, when is the book coming out? Your “Life with Bryce” can then become “the book under the Christmas tree”!
