About Outback

This magazine is intending to reflect the unique character of the everyday people of Australia’s vast outback country. It will present the stories, verses, humour, photography and art of those who have lived there in the past, or live there now: lives often reflecting extreme isolation in a sometimes temperamental landscape, tales of survival and tragedy, every aspect of life in a land that was old when man himself was young.

Its pages will also preserve the thoughts and aspirations of men and women who desire to acquaint themselves with the beauties and terrors of that ancient , whispering country that is the essential substance of Australia’s true spirit, far beyond the sight of coastal cities, towns and settlements where the majority of the population congregate.

Our pages will not only carry the experiences of successful entrepreneurs, but also the vision of ordinary adventurers, the battlers and victims, including those who left their dreams and bones in the waterless deserts and sleep for ever beneath the sands, safe from the swirling, flaring bushfires, the blinding dust storms and the floods that wash away droughts.
