Australian Country


In the hurly burly of getting each issue to press it’s easy to overlook the many hands that are involved in its production. We start team has travelled to the Arcadia Valley in central Queensland, Hamilton in Tasmania, the Coral Coast in WA, Bellingen on the mid-north coast of NSW, and Victoria’s Spa Country. We’ve also been to Mudgee for our travel story and once again, Bob and Wendy Lapointe generously allowed us to use their horse-training facility, Muskoka Farm, on the Hawkesbury River as a location for our fashion shoot. When we get all this material in, it then goes to our wonderful designer, Rachel Henderson, who selects the best images and designs the pages, then to our production, proofreading and prepress people, who finesse the words and make the images sing. Meanwhile, our ad reps are beavering away, encouraging clients to support our endeavours with their advertisements. Behind the scenes, there are yet more folk working in our circulation, marketing, subscriptions and online departments. As always, my heartfelt thanks go to each and every one of them. And, of course, to our readers, who so kindly buy the magazine and provide the most wonderful feedback on each issue. Each and every one of you is vital to and we appreciate your support. I hope you enjoy this issue as much as we have putting it together, and we look forward to bringing you the next one, which goes on sale April 26.
