Life & Photography

That connects you to the Australian Bush

There’s nothing quite like a real-life story, an exuberant yarn or simply being part of something that you might call “bush culture”.

Here we share authentic life stories from people who are connected to the Australian bush – through where they live, work and what they create.

People who are connected to the Australian bush are true “salt of the earth” type of people.

There’s no bullshit, no false pretences, just beautiful genuinity (we love this made-up word) and a deep founded love for something that is real, full of life and heart (our land).

Bush culture is something we’re proud to be a part of. It’s not just found in the way-out-back,

it’s in our cities too and we want you to help us discover and showcase it!

Whether it’s celebrating our country’s indigenous culture, farmers on the land or the diverse array of cultures that have all brought so much to our city food culture – there are countless stories out there that all tie us to the bush and in turn to each other.

Let’s share our stories to learn from each other, to unite and to celebrate what is truly a wonderfully diverse bush culture.

When we connect through stories true magic happens.
