About Tracker

Tracker magazine is a publication of the NSW Aboriginal Land Council, Australia’s largest Aboriginal organisation.

Tracker was launched in April 2011, to fill a few crucial functions:

  1. Shine a light on local, state, national and international issues of importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  2. Promote the rights and interests – in particular land rights – of Aboriginal people in NSW, and beyond.
  3. Keep politicians and mainstream media honest in their dealings with, and reporting on, Aboriginal issues.
  4. Provide important information to the 20,000 plus members of the NSW Aboriginal land rights network.

Tracker is a monthly print publication, and also features a daily news service online. It has a print run of 35,000 copies, making it by some margin Australia’s largest Aboriginal-specific publication.

The Managing Editor of Tracker is Chris Munro, a Gamilaraay journalist whose family hails from the old Caroona Mission. Tracker’s editor is Amy McQuire, a former National NAIDOC Young Apprentice Award Winner. Production is headed by Darren Moss, an Aboriginal designer and artist with decades of experience in design, page-layout and photography. Margot Bell takes care of the sales team and Rabea El Masri is Tracker’s Circulation Co-ordinator.
