100 years of
The Real Australian
BCA's award-winning magazine
The Real Australian has been in publication since 1920
To celebrate our centenary year in 2019 Bush Church Aid digitised every issue of its quarterly magazine The Real Australian.
Each issue is available as a Standard PDF or a Hi-Resolution PDF. Older issues are also available as Microsoft Word documents.
The Real Australian archive is fully searchable using the Google search bar found at the top right-hand side of this page. This search facility makes it simple to find exactly what you are looking for – from a particular Field Staff (missioner), ministry, outreach event or mission location. Alternatively you can view all the issues below.
