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.

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 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.

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.

Liberating the Will of Australia

Liberating the Will of Australia

Why do many First People in Australia find themselves continually under siege? Why do many interventions fail to produce what was hoped for? Why is it that, when there have been many positive developments, at some deep level, nothing seems to have changed? Will the “Uluru Statement from the Heart” ensure the future security of the First Peoples in Australia? By developing strands from Christian theology, Liberating the Will of Australia answers these questions in a way that gets to the heart of the problem. It is shown that the way that the First Peoples were treated by the first European in-comers became an indelible part of what Australia currently is. This explains why harm is often done even when good is intended, and why some problems are too complex to solve. But that does not mean that we need to be stuck in the past: through deep repentance by the “Subsequent Peoples,” much more than an apology, we can take hold of the work of God to bring new things out of what is broken. Ultimately, this is profoundly hopeful. Although focusing on Australia, the theological tools developed can be applied in other colonial and post-colonial contexts.

Methodism has played a major role in all areas of public life in Australia but has been particularly significant for its influence on education, social welfare, missions to Aboriginal people and the Pacific Islands and the role of women. Drawing together a team of historical experts, Methodism in Australia presents a critical introduction to one of the most important religious movements in Australia's settlement history and beyond. Offering ground-breaking regional studies of the development of Methodism, this book considers a broad range of issues including Australian Methodist religious experience, worship and music, Methodist intellectuals, and missions to Australia and the Pacific.
