In this issue we’ve combed the country for summer inspiration!

In Queensland we visit Jo Graham’s gorgeous cottage on the Maroochy River and the amazing Spanish Mission Art Deco home Paul and Debra Kinsella have restored high on a hill overlooking Cairns. We catch up with the Australian makers of Adirondack chairs at their home near the beach at Berry in NSW and serial renovator Fay Gamble at her home in Goolwa at the mouth of the Murray River in SA. Looking abroad, we join Jane and Myles Lamberth on their journey of restoration of a century-old cottage by the beach in Ireland. Our travel feature celebrates an epic vintage train trip across Queensland’s Gulf country on the Gulflander and Savannahlander and in the NSW high country, we catch up with work in progress on the historic buildings of Coonghoongbula station at Dalgety. Stylist Sandra Hinton pulls together a riverside picnic and chief cook Kay Francis celebrates pineapples. Plus we cover the latest looks for picnics and outdoor entertaining.

Join us for this issue of Australian Country, on sale until February 5th!
