    2019 Edition

    In our premiere edition we highlight Australian conservation across the land and sea, including fighting for our native species, sustainability through marine parks and managing feral pests.

    Along the way we proudly showcase unique locations like SA’s rugged Flinders Ranges, NT’s hidden healing springs of the Never-Never land, Tasmania’s ghost towns, The Keppels in Queensland by catamaran, the ‘snow-free’ magic within NSW’s Kosciuszko National Park, WA’s exceptional coastal town of Esperance and the Great Otways in Victoria.

    We favourably take a look at native mammals as pets, legends of the Australian bush, hunting for the table and funding adventures with ongoing casual work. We find the genetically purest French pigs in the world, ponder the benefits of eating our national emblem and delve into a multi-million-dollar saga involving government and a search for fanciful foxes.

    There’s 4WD, tyre safety and caravan towing tips to assist with your outdoor adventures, accompanied by reviews of useful products like the Hema HX-1 GPS Navigator and pertinent books like Walkabout Chefs. We take a first-aid course, look at contemporary boating options, show you how to catch your own prawns in the shallows and squid off jetties, along with keeping your food fresh.
