Swampland is a bi-annual print publication championing longform Australian music journalism and photography. Launched in 2016, Swampland is a place for Australian music stories that straddle all genres, ages and locations that otherwise wouldn’t find a home. Over five issues, Swampland‘s contributors have asked intelligent questions about the music that is being made here, or has been made previously, and have wondered what that says about the larger context of who we are. Previous contributors include Maxine Beneba-Clarke, Doug Wallen, Prue Stent & Honey Long, Mclean Stephenson, Agnieszka Chabros and more.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
