Galah is a love letter to regional Australia. The people who live here. The unique landscapes. The amazing stories.

GALAH. is an independent print publication about regional Australia. A modern voice from the bush. There's glorious heavy-stock pages of stories about art, architecture, farming and food that explore what it means to live in regional Australia today. This is not a publication to be read in one sitting.

Issue 4 

All about water. 

Author and journalist Gabrielle Chan, with her idiosyncratic clarity, explores our water trading system and wonders if applying the free market philosophy to it is a good thing. Author and lawyer, Richard Beasley SC, shares some of his learnings from his time as Counsel Assisting the SA Royal Commission into the Murray Darling Basin Plan.
What do you do then nothing is certain? When tectonic plates shift, when it doesn’t rain, when rules change and when marriages end? Editor Annabelle Hickson visits the Murray River community of Barham on the NSW-Victoria border to try to find some answers.
We visit Jill Wran in her garden on the New South Wales Central Coast and marvel at the beauty of her private retreat from a public life.
And then we hop on a light plane and head to Haggerstone Island, 600km north of Cairns, nestled amongst the colourful reefs and pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef.  Galah Issue 4 is an exploration and celebration of regional Australia of epic proportions. We hope you enjoy it.
