editor’s letter

the West Coast Wilderness Railway Look for Mission Beach’s elusive cassowary Take a cruise along the Murray, deep in South Australia (p132). Seek out the perfect cup of coffee in Melbourne I KNOW THE STEREOTYPES that go along with working for a travel magazine; upon hearing what we do, people instantly assume that our day to day consists of nothing more than reclining in business class and staying in five-star hotels.

That’s how our intrepid digital editor Steve Madgwick ended up standing in a council garbage dump on a muggy Queensland…

Watching a blood red sun sink slowly into the orange dirt of the Australian bush is worth picking up a 4WD for alone, and getting as deep as possible into this land of ours. This shot was captured while photographer Elise Hassey was on assignment with Australian Traveller’s digital editor Steve Madgwick in the vast stretches of Arnhem Land, 97,000 square kilometres of wilderness that belongs to the Yolngu people.The Yolngu constitute many remote communities, one of which is centred on the small town of Bulman. Thirty bouncy kilometres from town is Bagetti Homestead, where Steve and Elise took part in a hunt for wild bullocks for a feast at a ceremony (meet up) that evening and a traditional Welcome to Country. “The ceremony was at their sacred spot…

WHY DID YOU CREATE N››/›R››N? I wanted to create a product that would appeal to people all around the globe who are on the go, who start their day with a walk, a swim or by going to yoga or the gym. It’s for people who need an accessory that takes care of the essentials, their phone, keys, cards and cash, and withstands sand, sunscreen, long-haul flights and weekends away. WHAT WAS THE DESIGN INSPIRATION BEHIND THE RANGE? I wanted it to feel like summer all year long and have a sense of playfulness and fun. I wanted it to have a purpose, to be practical and provide a solution. NEO/PREEN can be used in a number of ways every day. HOW DID YOUR EXPERIENCE IN FASHION HELP…
