Our Story

Greetings! My name is Stacey and I created the independent zine 'Unknowing Australia' in 2022.

I have been interested in peculiar locations, ghost hunting and dark tourism for many years now. I recently began writing about my personal experiences, and that evolved into the decision to develop my own publication. There are many infamously haunted locations in the US and Europe, and I felt the need to highlight the equally interesting – but less publicised – locations and mythology of Australia.


With a background in graphic design, I was able to create the zine absolutely independently. Fortunately, I now receive submissions from writers across the world, who help me create engaging content for each issue. You can find out more about our regular contributors below.

I've been pleased to find out from readers that they have been waiting for a publication just like this, and I appreciate our regular, loyal readers!
