Welcome to AUSTRALIAN GEOGRAPHIC
The Australian Geographic is a bi-monthly geographical magazine-style journal created by Dick Smith in 1986.
It focuses mainly on stories about Australia, or about Australian people in other countries.It was published by Australian Geographic, a privately owned organisation that also managed a chain of retail stores similarly named in Australia. Each year, a portion of the profits is given to the Australian Geographic Society, the non-profit arm of Australian Geographic which supports scientific research as well as environmental and community projects. Funds are also used to highlight and support Australian adventurers and produce related diaries, calendars and books. There are also 70 Australian Geographic retail stores which sell products including Australiana, weather stations, telescopes, books and toys, these are now owned and run separately to the magazine publication.
