In December last year, the Backwoods home newspaper went online for the first time in its 21-year history.
It’s one of the magazine’s favourite websites, with a huge following.
“We’ve been talking to our readers for a long time,” says executive editor Tim Wainwright.
“They’re really into Backwoods.
I don’t know that it was a conscious decision on our part to make it available online.”
The magazine’s content is a mix of backwoods stories, vintage photographs, and news from around the country.
The magazine is published by the company that owns the Backwood magazine, the Herald Sun, which is owned by News Corporation.
“It’s just a very unique product that has a strong community of people who are interested in it,” Wainowsky says.
“People want to know about the Backlands, the history of Australia and how it has changed over the years.”
“We’re always looking to create a more diverse digital magazine, and we have that in our portfolio of content.”
It’s also one of News Corp’s largest brands, with 1.5 million daily readers and more than 30 million monthly visitors.
It was founded in 1996 and publishes a wide range of lifestyle and lifestyle magazines.
“The Backwoods is really important to us because it’s such a popular, long-running Australian lifestyle magazine,” Wile says.
In recent years, the magazine has published articles that explore the history, heritage, culture and identity of the country, which has changed through the years.
The magazines mission is to help Australians reconnect with their roots and connect with the people and places around them.
Wile has been writing about the country since the mid-1970s, when he was a journalist for The Australian.
Backwoods Magazine is published weekly in its home town of Kogarah.
Wainowski says that it’s the perfect medium for the brand to continue to grow.
“I think the Backwaters community is really vibrant, passionate and knowledgeable,” he says.
The Backwaters is a place where everyone comes from.
“There’s an affinity for the land, the people, the animals, the way of life, the culture, the landscapes and the climate.”
Wainwood says the Backroads has been a staple of the local community since the early 1990s, with many people choosing to write about the region.
“When people come to the region they feel they have a connection to the land and a connection with the community and we’re just so proud to be a part of that,” he said.
“Our community has always been very open and supportive, so it’s great that we’re able to do that.”
‘Our community is strong and resilient’ Wainwyer says that Backwoods has grown from being just a one-off article into a national treasure.
“That’s really a testament to the community’s resilience,” he added.
“For a long, long time we didn’t have a real local publication.
We didn’t really have a strong local publication, because people weren’t interested in doing that.”
“It really helps us to build the infrastructure and the infrastructure to build a national publication, so that when we do get the opportunity to do it we can be a little bit more confident about it,” he adds.
“So, if the opportunity comes up and we get it, we’re confident we can do it.”
