It’s no wonder foreigners have no idea what we’re talking about – we abbreviate everything. EVERYTHING! Aussies are geniuses like that, as Josh and Rhys point out, because while we like a good chat, we don’t like to chat for too long, so we’ve decided to abbreviate every. single. word. to make our conversations as quick as possible.
Some people just have talent for taking good pictures. You can’t really put your finger on what makes their work so special, but there’s something extraordinary about every image. Aussie photographer Julian Schulz is one of those photographers.
Only in Australia! This video from Victoria shows us just how deadly the redback spider is, even when a snake is concerned. It also shows us why we should never, ever go outside again.
A visit to this Australian National Heritage national park provides an unparalleled rugged experience

A national park in Victoria, Australia, the 167,219-hectare (413,210-acre) park is 260 kilometers (160 miles) west of Melbourne and 460 kilometers (290 miles) east of Adelaide.
For many others, and myself six years is a long time to wait for a follow up release; but sometimes life just gets in the way. This is the considered answer from Timothy McPhee (front man, guitar wizard and in house producer) over his mug of hot water, lemon and ginger as we take refuge […]
Like any form of art, taxidermy has its fair share of disturbingly wonderful pieces. One of the most disturbing, and most wonderful, pieces of taxidermy we’ve seen was made right in Sydney – multiple times over. Risto Todoroski makes bagpipes from deceased goats. That’s right, bagpipes from deceased goats. Hmm, wonder what he’d do with […]
It’s 2am, you’re on a freeway, leaving a club, at a house party. You’re craving food, good food. Unfortunately for you, this is not the time of night to be able to buy good food. Not even close. Did someone just say McDonalds is open? Oh boy. How do they know? Well, friend, it’s 2013 […]
Everyone reading this has had an experience with a slightly disgruntled animal before. Whether it was a yappy dog, an unhappy snake, or a very angry little ant, I can assure you that it was not as angry as this cat from Marrickville, in Sydney’s inner west. Unfortunately people have to co-exist with the Angry […]
Ahh breakups. Aren’t they just the best? All that freedom, having no one to answer to … Well, I know it may not be like that for all of us, all of the time. Luckily for all you ladies (and unluckily for us boys), Australian-based design brand Her Royal Flyness have developed the ultimate ex-boyfriend […]
I hate getting kicked out of hotels at 11am, right on the dot. Just stop to think about it. Who really cares when you checkout if the next guest isn’t coming for two more days? One innovative Australian hotel is making the checkout procedure a little different for a change. Just call between 8-11am and […]

So you claim to be a typography nerd, do you? Well, we have just the challenge for you. Australian-based creatives, Dustin de Souza and Jessica Witt, have come up with a game that may be your undoing… or your making. FontSpotting is a flashcard game which tests players’ knowledge about the names of different typefaces. […]
If you haven’t taken the plunge yet on a good pair of leather shoes, and you want to, you should probably go all out with a pair of Roberts & Hassett shoes from Australia. Made from local kangaroo leather, the boots are hand-welted with hand-spun linen threads and hand-stitched outsoles. I know, it’s a lot […]
Something that I’ve been really looking into lately is eating raw and vegan. I mean, I could never do it full time (I like ALL food way too much), but I think incorporating more raw and vegan products into my diet is a good idea. Luckily, there’s an awesome Melbourne company called Botanical Cuisine which […]
Jai Pyne spent a good seven years as frontman of (arguably) one of Australia’s best indie bands – The Paper Scissors. Now that band is done and dusted, he’s allowing another passion to shine through. We caught up with Jai to talk all about his newish Sydney cafe Fleetwood Macchiato, located in inner-city Erskineville, and his love affair with everyone’s favourite pick me up.
