We’ve scoured the country to find the most fascinating home and lifestyle stories for your reading pleasure. From the stunning home and stables of Olympic equestrian Mary Hanna, to a historic stone cottage in a Murray River port-town, and finally Natalie Holts’ delightful Byron Bay property – this splendid issue has it all. Click away to find out more!

For the next issue of Australian Country we’ve again scoured the country to find the most fascinating home and lifestyle stories for your reading pleasure. In Victoria we meet equestrian Mary Hanna as she climbs into the saddle to continue her preparation for her fourth World Equestrian Games and, hopefully, her fifth Olympics. We detour to South Australia to catch up with Fay Gamble, who lives in a historic stone cottage in the Murray River port town of Goolwa, then head up to northern NSW where Natalie Holt has traded her job in Sydney’s corporate world for life in a gentler lane at Bangalow. We visit the cottage garden Terry and Leonie Kearney have created in the Queensland sub-tropics and our service feature takes an illuminating look at lighting. Our chief cook Kay Francis celebrates the infinite variety of the humble carrot and stylist Sandra Hinton explores two of our passions — food and reading — in story about hosting a book club get together. So join us for the next issue of Australian Country, on sale June 12.
