Show stopper

March 17, 2017

The good old fashioned country show is something that resonates vividly in the Australian experience for many locals. In the lead up to the the big one, the Sydney Royal Easter Show, there seems to be a flurry of ‘carnival’ activity in many regional locations around the country. Having grown… Read More »

2016 Reflections

January 23, 2017

It’s been a good while since we have written from the Armidale headquarters of Austockphoto. And with 2017 recently barging its way into our lives, we thought it a good time to sit down, reflect and project. After landing solidly on our feet in early in 2016, things became a… Read More »

What was the journey to becoming co-owners of a design agency and now Austockphoto? We met back in uni days and pretty soon after graduating we started Sydney design and branding agency: Boheem. Over the years we learned how to work effectively as a partnership and complement one another’s strengths.… Read More »

Whether you are a sport lover or not, there is an event starting in Rio this week that seems to unify all Australians for a couple of short weeks, every four years. We are a country small in numbers, but have always been immensely proud of our ability to match… Read More »

The great Aussie trip. Some travel by planes, others by trains, buses or caravans. People love to travel around Australia. The travellers are as varied as their modes of transport. When Mick Miller contacted Austockphoto and told us about his recent journey around Australia, we knew his story was unique. In… Read More »

We have been having a few of those flash forward moments lately. You know, where if your old self from a year or two ago could look forward and see yourself now and go … what the heck! We set off on our road trip adventure a little over 12… Read More »

Dead end Jeep

March 23, 2016

2015 was drawing to a close. We definitely said some sad Fremantle farewells, but we were excited to be back on the road and looking forward to exploring the almost revered south west of WA. Since landing in Perth, many people had asked whether we had been or when we… Read More »

Craig Holloway is one of our super talented contributors. He has a fantastic appreciation for this wide brown land, and everyday, is capturing it with his camera. We are chuffed that Craig was happy to answer some questions for us..   Where do you live? Has it always been home?… Read More »

Fabulous Freo!

March 1, 2016

About six weeks out from arriving in the most remote capital city in this wide, brown land, we had already started talking about putting the brakes on. We had been on the road relentlessly for 6 months, with the constant pressure of setting up, planning, packing up and driving on.… Read More »

West Coast Wobbles

February 7, 2016

Our next leg down the West Coast takes us from the Pilbara region, all the way down to Fremantle; a lazy 1500 km. Apart from a near miss with a very resilient dog in North Queensland and a stray caravan oven on the bumpy roads of the Kimberley, we had… Read More »

West Coast Wanderings

November 16, 2015

It was time for our now party of five to saddle up and start heading South. The West coast stretch was a little intimidating at this point, with the best part of 2 and ½ thousand kilometers until our next decent stop-off in Fremantle. We felt a little sorry for… Read More »

If you work in design or a similar creative role, you will know the utter frustration at the lack of easily accessible, quality, contemporary Australian stock photography. We have felt it for years, and decided it was time for change. And so marked the beginning of Austockphoto, the Australian Stock Photography Library: 100%… Read More »

Next stop after our ‘run-in’ with Purnululu National Park was Fitzroy Crossing. A small town with a mostly indigenous population, set on the banks of the (you guessed it) Fitzroy River. The river is actually one of Australia’s largest, and it often floods extensively in the wet season. The fact… Read More »

Another state and another iconic Australian region to explore, The Kimberley. A bit like Katherine Gorge, this was one of those areas that we didn’t know too much about, despite it being such a familiar ‘page’ in the Australian travel guide. In case you were wondering, the Kimberley region is… Read More »

I Heart NT (Part 1)

August 3, 2015

We are currently right at the top end of this big, wide country of ours looking back over the last 3 weeks on the road. Without hesitation it has been the best segment of our road trip so far. This is partly driven by the consistency of the weather. And… Read More »

Red Dust & Windmills

July 17, 2015

Alright… After the best part of three months on the road it was finally time to leave the coast. From Townsville we took a left turn and started heading west on the Overlander’s Way. Funnily enough, this physical ‘turning point’ was exactly that for our road trip so far. It… Read More »

As the saying goes, time flies when you are having fun. We are rapidly approaching the 3 month mark of our 9 month adventure, and it’s hard to believe this much time has already passed. We are on the verge of saying goodbye to the East Coast, and while we… Read More »

Queensland sand

June 7, 2015
