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:
- Shine a light on local, state, national and international issues of importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
- Promote the rights and interests – in particular land rights – of Aboriginal people in NSW, and beyond.
- Keep politicians and mainstream media honest in their dealings with, and reporting on, Aboriginal issues.
- 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.
