In May 2004 the Police Association of NSW appointed Countrywide Austral as the publisher of our official journal, NSW Police News. As the union representing the largest police force in the country, our journal has a readership of over 40,000 and is well regarded in the law enforcement community.
Countrywide Austral has consistently maintained the high quality of our publication and rigorously adhered to publishing schedules. The staff of Countrywide is professional, courteous and capable.
The Police Association is very proud of its good name, and any company acting on our behalf is expected to maintain high standards especially relating to advertising sales. Countrywide Austral has met our high expectations in this regards and we are well satisfied with the professionalism displayed by Countrywide Austral.

Working with Countrywide Austral
As President of the Victoria SES Volunteers Association, I have had the pleasure to work with Countrywide Austral since 2014. CWA publishes our magazine Phoenix, which is the oldest emergency service association magazine in Australia.

Our relationship with CWA has been based on clear communication, an understanding of our stakeholders and positive customer engagement. The flexible and responsive working arrangement has been productive for our association and increased our profile and sector presence.

Importantly, publishing with CWA means we can feature our SES volunteers as an essential emergency workforce, increase safety awareness in the community and maintain a high standard of shared knowledge about emergency response.

Countrywide Austral has published our True Blue magazine for us for a number of years. We have found them professional, knowledgeable, and always attentive to our needs. Our partnership has been an excellent one.

We have worked with Countrywide Austral for many years – first when they were Austral Media and now as Countrywide Austral.
We have always been pleased with the products the company has produced for the union. Our magazines are always of the highest quality and delivered on schedule.
The CWA team has always gone the extra mile to provide us with a service that goes beyond the wording of our agreement. We are now excited to be working with Countrywide Austral in developing a digital/social media communications strategy.
