Welcome to Up Country

Well informed, nostalgic and sometimes opinionated, Up Country is interested in accessible pursuits like tramping, fishing and camping. It likes to tell good stories about adventures that most people could do, and is always on the lookout for odd facts and trivia about things you find, see, do or carry in the bush, at the beach, or up the mountains.

Among the stories you can expect to read is a short history of the bush shirt, the diary of someone building a vintage kayak, a guide to panning for gold and an essay on the woodpigeon. If you’ve got your own stories to tell, we’d like to hear from you. And even if you don’t, tell us what you think.

We're always on the look out for new writing and photography. If you have an interesting idea for an article get in touch with us through our contact page.

Enjoy.
