Robyn Davidson


Robyn Davidson was born on a cattle property in Queensland. She moved to Sydney in the late Sixties, returning to study in Brisbane before going to Alice Springs to prepare for her journey across the Australian desert. Davidson’s first book Tracks was an international sensation, and was adapted into a film starring Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver. She has travelled extensively, living in London, New York and India, where in the 1990s she spent a year writing about and migrating with nomads. Davidson is now based in regional Victoria, but spends some time each year in India.
