Most Australians live in cities, clinging to the coast and looking outwards towards the ocean. Yet almost all of us feel closely connected to the country, even if we hardly ever visit it.

Many of us dream of moving to rural areas, there's a harshness to much of the Australian landscape and yet we still feel a sense of romance about it.

For Rural Australian Homes, Leta Keens travelled around Australia to find the 18 homes featured in the book, a wide-ranging and appealing selection that includes a sheep station that has been in the same family for 100 years, a converted general store, an adapted shed, and award-winning architect-designed contemporary houses.

Covering every state and the Northern Territory, Rural Australian Homes gives a compelling insight into contemporary life in rural Australia, and offers a glimpse into some of the history that has defined it.

Rural Australian Homes


I thought it would be a bit more arty in decorative sense. It was literally Rural Australian homes. I though it would be a hard copy version of Country Style.





Inspiring. Makes me want to build a house, or at least forage and create my own utopian home.
