#150 May-June 2019
In this issue we celebrate our 150th edition, revisiting our launch issue cover and long-standing emblem Banjo the platypus with a special cover artwork by Nathan Ferlazzo. We have a limited number of these prints available to purchase, so if you’d like to bring Banjo into your home click here for more details.
In this issue we investigate the curiosity that is the platypus, it’s unique biology and why data is so limited on this iconic Australian. See a video of a platypus being milked for venom. We’re also raising funds for research into this elusive species – see how you can help protect the platypus here.
We witness history and technology collide with the search for Matthew Flinder’s final resting place, revisit the mystery of Lasseter’s Reef, and explore the Great Forest National Park in Victoria. We look back over the past 60 years of the Duke of Edinburgh award with Australia’s first Gold Award recipient Michael Dillon, and see where the award is headed to next. Our taste for adventure takes us back country skiing in Kosciuszko, and cruising the Spice islands.
Plus, to celebrate our anniversary edition, we have TWO giveaways this issue!
We’re giving away one JBL voice-activated speaker, valued at $229.95 (Enter here).
We’re also giving away nine limited edition Lesser bilby coins from the Royal Australian Mint’s new collection “Echoes of Australian fauna” (Enter here).
