HuffPost: It’s Personal

At HuffPost Australia, we put people first.

We write for the people, not the powerful, with coverage that reflects your reality.

We’re proud of our stories that focus on different voices, such as Boori Monty Pryor, a Birri-gubba & Kunggandji man, who has been racially profiled his whole life but uses his experiences to teach allyship to Australians.

And restaurant owner Vatsal Harshadkumar Shah, who provided free meals to stranded international students who fell through the cracks of Australia’s COVID-19 assistance packages.

Or Dr Jason King, an Indigenous doctor working in the remote Queensland town of Yarrabah, who was desperately trying to keep the virus out of his high-risk community with limited resources and protective equipment.

From the overlooked heroes to the underdogs, we focus on what connects us as Aussies while linking you to the rest of the world through HuffPost’s unique global network.

As well as breaking down the big stories that matter to our country, we deliver expert-backed answers to help you tackle challenges in life. Whether it’s how to deal with post-lockdown anxiety, understanding travel lockdowns, or providing the best resources for protesting safely, we’re here to help. 

It's more important than ever to empower you with information you can trust. We don't take that responsibility lightly. And when you need to put your feet up, we've found you the best telly, recipes and podcasts, because we know your downtime is precious.

Welcome to HuffPost. For us, it’s personal.
