Welcome to the Great Australian Outdoors

Our international award-winning magazines and cookbooks showcase the best of this great land’s flora and fauna by demonstrating that utilisation and enjoyment goes hand in glove with protecting it. We are a not-for-profit organisation that proudly supports the Conservation and Wildlife Research Trust (CWRT). The CWRT provides funds for on-the-ground environmental projects and bursaries for up-and-coming environmental academics.

Great Australian Outdoors is Australia’s first magazine of ‘destination, exploration and conservation’. We take an in-depth look at issues affecting our continent’s landscape, fauna and flora by uniquely consulting with academics, environmental experts and custodians of the land and seas, be it farmers, fishers or those charged with protecting it for future generations. Along the way we showcase beautiful destinations, provide travel tips and ideas, maps, technical and product information, reviews and more. Presented annually, GAO is the big authentic Australian outdoors magazine befitting our big sensational country!

Field to Fork – The Australian Game Cookbook brings together a selection of food, health and environmental topics to help you make informed and healthy food decisions beyond what’s available from the supermarket. While we may not always consciously think about it, the time and effort we dedicate to sourcing, preparing, eating and sharing our food forms a big part of our lives. With highly processed foods available everywhere, our nutrition and food lifestyle choices are increasingly leading us to more free-range and organic options. Many of us not only choose to consider the health benefits of what we eat, but also whether it has been sourced in a way that matches our ethical, environmental and sustainability beliefs. Work is well underway on our exciting second edition!
