Welcome to Ausemade… coming to you from the ‘heart of Australia’.

Our website is undergoing a complete revamp.

We are still writing about select tourism destinations, as well as covering topics that interest us such as Art and Culture, Festivals and Events. And for a more personal touch, we will be bringing our thoughts, our musings, our experiences… through articles and blog style ramblings…

As we are based in the heart of the continent, we will be bringing you much more content from Central Australia. Like the region’s local Western Bowerbirds, we will be bringing nuggets of treasures, places we have been to, things we have seen, and other items that catch our interest.

Don’t worry, we will be retaining some of our popular content, including many of the photos and images, fauna, flora and Aboriginal art and culture… all the things that make Australia home…

Take a stroll through our site, as we ‘showcase Australia’… See the places we have been, share our interest in flora and fauna, festivals and events we have experienced, and learn about ‘the living heart’…

Flora and fauna is close to our hearts at Ausemade… indeed what a poorer world we would live in if there was not the beautiful diversity. In Australia there is an amazing array of life from the smallest of insects to the huge whales that swim up and down our coastline. Even in our own backyards, we can be surprised and delighted by what grows and lives there.

New content include Parrtjima Festival, Waratah, Thorny Devil, Sacred Kingfisher, Torresian Kingfisher, Spinifex, Spinifex hopping mouse, Spinifex Pigeon, Rainbow Bee-eater, Kaputar Pink Slug and Kangaroo, Wallaroo, Euro, Wallaby.

Throughout the site we source information including our footnotes and references and on our publication page books we like here at Ausemade.
