Queensland Country Life is renowned and respected as the 'Bible of the Bush' and has been a vital lifeline of information to rural Queenslanders for more than 85 years. From livestock, cropping, horticulture, agribusiness, property and everything in between, QCL is the one stop shop for all rural news. The weekly print masthead and daily-updated website reaches 89 per cent of the state's farmers each month.
Once upon a time the newsroom was abuzz with journalists each reporting on their specialised commodities. They were armed with a notebook, pencil, sheets of copy paper and either a Rolleifex or Voigtlander camera with flash bulks and a dry battery charger on their shoulder. They'd report back by reverse charge phone calls from a phone box or hotel room.
Today our passionate team of journalists can write and publish stories to a global audience within just a few minutes. Whether it's the Roma cup or record stud sale results, their laptops, mobile phones and cameras make it easy to share the news from all corners of the bush.
While our main office is in Cleveland, a suburb of Brisbane, our reporters are spread across the state in Roma, Dalby, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, and Townsville, but they aren't afraid to travel far beyond their hometowns.
