Australian Musician

Australianmusician.com.au, ‘The Website for Musicians’ was re-launched in May 2014.

AUSTRALIAN MUSICIAN has returned ONLINE, providing our local music community and industry with a much-needed promotional and information tool. Offering news, interviews, videos, lessons and reviews, using the latest technology to reach Australia’s many enthusiastic music makers.

When it finished up in print in 2011, AUSTRALIAN MUSICIAN was the longest running publication for musicians in Australia. Now the tradition continues. It’s as relevant and required now as it was back when it began.

What is Australian Musician?

A hub for musicians to share, capture and interact with each other. Get involved with the content and advertise (affordably) to put your products and services in front of your local music community.
