About us

Australian Country Life Magazine was founded in 2014 to profile and record the lifestyle and work of those living in rural Australia, along with a special focus on Australian country music. We intend to be a breath of fresh air in the publishing world. We feature real artists, real people, real farmers, real life from the rural regions of Australia we’re all about high-quality writing and photography to bring these stories to life. We’re not city and we’re not the dusty outback – we’re where ordinary Australians are putting their heart and soul into providing food and materials for our nation.

Although originally from Sydney, spending most of his school holidays on a mixed-enterprise family farm near Walla Walla NSW inspired a passion for rural life. He’s since lived in Wagga Wagga, in Canberra, and now on a property just outside Yass NSW. Always keeping a keen interest in rural life and farming, Andrew’s work career has spanned public relations, journalism and photography for a wide range of clients and employers.
