Nick Rains has photographed people and places across Australia for over 35 years, and in that time he's met people from many different walks of life - people living in remote or rural communities, coastal or urban dwellers, Indigenous Australians, battlers or those who are just plain strange. But the people who he's found the most fascinating are the unsung local heroes, those who go to extraordinary lengths in the name of 'community'. Nick says, 'I realised the capacity for Australian communities to put on some kind of "do" was effectively limitless. Sometimes these events are prompted by fundraising for, say, the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Other times it's a common interest in horses or music or Elvis or bacon, or just about anything.' Heart of Australia is a visual celebration of the people who dedicate themselves to a vast array of events that occur on any given weekend around Australia. The book captures the huge sense of fun and spirit that was so evident when Nick was there in person, and is a photography book that highlights the very best of the Australian way of life, in all its forms.

The Rock  Looking into Australia s    Heart of Darkness    from the edge of its wild frontier

Author: Aaron Smith

Publisher: Transit Lounge

ISBN: 1925760685

Journalist Aaron Smith's new memoir holds up a unique mirror to Australia. What he sees is at once amazing, disturbing and revealing. The Rock explores the failings of our nation's character, its unresolved past and its uncertain future from the vantage point of its most northerly outpost, Thursday Island. Smith was the last editor, fearless journalist and the paperboy of Australia's most northerly newspaper, the Torres News, a small independent regional tabloid that, until it folded in late 2019, was the voice of a predominantly Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal readership for 63 years across some of the most remote and little understood communities in Australia. The Rock is a story of self-discovery where Smith grapples to understand a national identity marred by its racist underbelly, where he is transplanted from his white-boy privileged suburban life to being a racial and cultural minority, and an outsider. Peppered with his experiences, Smith gradually and sensitively becomes embedded in island life while vividly capturing the endless and often farcical parade of personalities and politicians including Scott Morrison and Tony Abbott. Smith pulls no punches while he reflects on the history of Terra Australis incognita, dissecting what is truly Australia, and its gaping cultural and moral divide. 'A credit to regional journalism, Aaron carried on the fine tradition of the Torres News holding governments to account and telling stories of everyday life in the Straits, never shying away from controversies, lifting all the rocks and even out foxing prime minister Tony Abbott on his visit to Mabo's grave.' — Stefan Armbruster, SBS 'Aaron Smith makes a huge and extremely valuable contribution to journalism in Australia. With insight and committment he brings issues of national and international significance to audiences in Australia and beyond.' — Dr Tess Newton Cain, Griffith Asia Institute 'Aaron's journalism has provided a rare and valuable insight into issues affecting the Torres Strait Islander community. Navigating cultural protocols and geographical challenges, he has given a voice to some of Australia's most marginalised people and shared important stories that would otherwise have gone unheard.' — Ella Archibald-Binge, Sydney Morning Herald

If the traveller's aim is to find wonders and treasures not before our eyes that others have overlooked, then this is truly a hidden classic. - PICO IYER Wings of the Kite-Hawk is unlike any other book written about inland Australia. Bittersweet and entrancing, it is a set of linked journeys into the Australian landscape: its past and present, its people and its half-remembered secrets. In each chapter, Nicolas Rothwell takes a precursor and follows him. His guides include famous explorers from the past - Leichhardt, Sturt, Strehlow and Giles - as well as artists, anthropologists, rodeo riders and even Hell's Angels. Vivid characters weave in and out of this story, inspiring conversations and travels that examine different states of mind and heart: live, loss, fear, friendship. Winner of the Courier-Mail Book of the Year With a new foreword by Pico Iyer and a new preface by the author.

This is a special limited edition hardback of The Heart of Everything, with unique endpapers featuring Sally Gabori's painting Ninjilki. From totem designs used for body paint-up to sweeps of brilliant colour on canvas, the art of Mornington and Bentinck Islands has a long and rich history. This major new book - featuring the work of artists from Mornington Island Arts & Craft centre - explores, for the first time, the history and visual culture of the region and its wide ranging contemporary art movement. Founded by brothers Dick and Lindsay Roughsey in the 1960s, todays' artists of Mornington Island, off the far north Queensland coast, are creating fresh and exciting imagery. Alongside this, led by Sally Gabori, has developed a whole new school of joyous paintings by the Kaiadilt artists of nearby Bentinck Islands. Lavishly illustrated throughout the book features a stunning four page fold-out of a large collaborative painting and informative essays by Dr Paul Memmott and Dr Nicholas Evans and art writer Louise Martin-Chew, and with biographies of the leading exhibiting artists, The Heart of Everything is an in-depth exploration of the vibrant contemporary art of this fascinating region of Australia's far north.

This book tells the story of cyclists who were overcome by the need to venture into the wild on two wheels; the courageous men and women who undertook some of the most epic bicycle journeys of all time. Wild Ride reminds us of a thrilling period of exploration all but forgotten in the age of the motorcar. Daniel Oakman takes us on a rich ride through 130 years of Australian cycling; from the overlanding heroes of Arthur Richardson and Francis Birtles, to the lesser known but no less amazing feats of Jerome Murif, Ted Ryko and Joe Pearson, through to modern-day bikepacking trailblazers such as Kate Leeming, Tegan Streeter and Tom Richards. Celebrity riders are here too; from the historic icons of Hubert ‘Oppy’ Opperman, Wendy Duncan and Shirley Law, to the more recent triumphs of actor Sam Johnson and his audacious quest to ride a unicycle 15,000 kilometres around the country. You will be astounded by their journeys, retold here with sparkling clarity. Be inspired for your next pedal powered adventure.
