When I upload category thumbnail images they are resized to 180x180, but I need them to be bigger (300x300).
They are being uploaded (by default) to a folder ... /media/catalog/category/resized/180x180/.
Can anyone please tell me how I can change this setting, as I cannot find anything in admin?
My Magento knowledge is not great, so a simple explanation would be greatly appreciated.

This is how you display product image in phtml files (please ignore missing img attributes):
<img src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($_product, 'small_image') ->constrainOnly(false) ->keepAspectRatio(true) ->keepFrame(true) ->keepTransparency(true) ->backgroundColor(array(255,255,255)) ->resize(135, 135); ?>" />
As you can see there's a handful of methods to modify product image among which is also a resize method. The code above resizes image to 135px x 135px. There isn't much you can do without delving into code.
Thanks for the reply, but I asked how to change the CATEGORY image (not the product), as below
When I upload a thumbnail image it is resized to 180x180.
I have checked via ftp and for each image I upload, it creates two resized versions in the following directories...
tI could be understood either ways. But anyway -- this post also contains an answer to your question (keep scrolling): http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8711253/how-to-resize-the-categories-images-in-magento
