To celebrate Australia Day, the Southern Cross Veterinary clinic supports a beach day for the hounds of the Eastern Suburbs. Here’s how you and your best buddy can get involved!
This morning, Matthew Flinders was found, and was found to have some strong words for Scott Morrison’s plan to honour Captain Cook.

In the week that was, while America was busy revealing her worst, Australia honoured her absolute best. Chin-chin.

With today marking both Australia Day and Indian Republic Day, Chetna Prakash has bore witness to the differing hangovers of colonisation.
After Stan Grant’s speech went viral, The Ethics Centre have polled a series of notable Indigenous Australians to explain the reality of his words.
Michael Burrill wishes we could lose the “knights in shining armour” act we adopt when it comes to showing support for some popular issues and acknowledge we’re mucky handed and in the mire just like everyone else.
