ABOUT/CONTACT

Amy-McQuire-speech-L

I’m a Darumbal and South Sea Islander woman from Rockhampton in Central Queensland with 10 years experience in the Indigenous media sector.

I’m currently working as a freelance journalist.

I began my career straight out of high school, completing a cadetship at the National Indigenous Times (NIT) newspaper. I later became editor of NIT, was for a short time a political correspondent for NITV News and then the editor of the Tracker Magazine, which was published and subsequently abolished by the NSW Aboriginal Land Council. I was most recently a senior reporter for New Matilda – where I still contribute on Aboriginal affairs occasionally. I was also previously a radio presenter on Brisbane’s 98.9 FM where I presented the ‘Lets Talk’ current affairs show.

I have a strong interest in reporting on justice, culture and heritage and feminism.

This is my personal home on the web, primarily used to archive articles, and all comments/articles reflect my views only and not those of my employers. I hope it can act as a resource for all who are interested in Aboriginal rights.

You can access Let’s Talk interviews here.

  1. Thank you for your insightful, pithy and intellectual writing. You breathe fresh air into Australia’s stagnant, festering media landscape. And you’re hilarious and on-point every single time.
