THE Australian travel writing community is coming to grips with the untimely death of Kris Madden, who suffered a fatal heart attack just after Christmas.

Madden was a prolific writer in both trade and consumer travel publications, with her distinguished career including a stint as editor of travelBulletin as well as several other magazines.

There has been an outpouring of tributes on Facebook, including one from former Tourism Australia md Andrew McEvoy who said Kris had been a “great friend of tourism, travel and Australia”.

Madden, pictured above left at the 2015 National Travel Industry Awards with former Cruise Weekly editor Louise Goldsbury, founded Eco Media Group, and worked as a respected expedition leader in Antarctica, the Russian Far East and the South Pacific.
