WHAT IS GALAH?

GALAH is a new, reader-supported magazine about regional Australia - a modern voice from the bush.

Our peers in the publishing industry recently honoured us with two big awards: Launch of the Year and Editor of the Year.

GALAH is a cultural magazine that explores life in regional Australia, covering the arts, food, travel and design as well as big-picture issues like water, decentralisation and community.

We are independent and are accountable only to you, our readers. Our mission is to deliver truth and beauty and to tell the stories about regional Australia that go beyond drought, floods and fires.

Issue 05. make Australia make again

In our latest issue we ask questions like ‘what can we make today?’ ‘What will serve us?’ And, perhaps most importantly, ‘what will satisfy us?’ We sit down with manufacturers, artists and economists, with saddlers and woodworkers and cooks. We quit the office, we visit a town as it reverses it’s boom-to-bust past. We watch millions of dollars pour into the arts across regional Australia. We meet a woman who thinks nothing of hand stitching a quilt for six months, we visit an artist in a banana packing shed, we deck out an old train carriage with modern Australian fabrics. We fall in love over persimmons and we make a garden from scratch. Our regulars Meg Mason, Gabrielle Chan, Fiona Bateman, Mark McGinness and Aunty Maude are joined by a new kid on the block .. a seasoned regional GP, who sends dispatches from his remote posts. He describes himself as grumpy but his letters are full of love.
Make a beeline for this issue celebrating all things regional Australia.

In Galah Issue 1 we featured renowned garden photographer Claire Takacs and I simply cannot go past her beautiful book 'Australian Dreamscapes'. Here is a little extract from my piece on Claire from Issue 1, titled 'Chasing the Light': 
The grass is always green at the Relaxing Café. Literally, because fake grass covers the floor, but also because owners Warunee (Jacky) Panichattra and Suparak (Peaw) Wongsuwan, a couple from Thailand who have made the New South Wales agricultural town of Moree their home, refuse to let it be anything else.

Sarah Hall writes about buying a public building, and how she saw the turning of the tide from community concern to community support.
