The following is a list (an ever growing list!), of the names and known dates of magazines and newspapers that contained articles on or by Idriess.

 

The Bulletin
 

First published in 1880, The Bulletin was the bushman's bible and became an Australian institution of the 20th century, ceasing publishing after 128 years.

 

Idriess was a relentless contributor to the "Aboriginalities" page and wrote under various pseudonyms - most commonly under 'Gouger'.

Part 2, containing further paragraphs and short stories was published in 2013

 

If you wish to purchase either of the "Gouger of the Bulletin" volumes then please contact us and send a request and we will contact the compiler.
