Created by the team from Australia's much-loved Country Style, led by editor-in-chief Victoria Carey, this book is a celebration of the gorgeous rural homes and incredible characters who have filled the pages of the magazine over the past 30 years.
Be inspired by the heartwarming tales and amazing renovations undertaken by families throughout regional Australia. From historic cottages dating back to the 1800s to converted churches and characterful homesteads, each story is accompanied by sumptuous photography and details of the transformations that each house has undergone. Our rural renovators have also demonstrated fantastic creativity, from sourcing and restoring vintage furniture to producing their own artworks. Some have even gone on to launch businesses based on these skills.
Producers share their stories of how they have coped with the drought, including moves into biodynamic and organic farming, and how others are developing sidelines such as gin-making or artist-in-residence programs. Above all, you'll hear about the wonderfully supportive communities in country areas and discover what makes living in regional Australia such a remarkable experience.
