About Ocean Road Magazine

From humble beginnings six years ago, Ocean Road Magazine has become the premier 

Lifestyle Magazine in the region with its primary distribution stretching from Ballina/Byron 

Bay in the south to Sanctuary Cove in the north - and everywhere in between.

quality local content. The small yet dedicated team pride themselves on original stories; 

written, photographed and designed to showcase the spectacular region in a way no other 

publication in the region can rival. Award winning photographer, founder and Editor in Chief 

Brian Usher has used his love and passion for photography to set Ocean Road apart creating 

spectacular images setting a new benchmark right from the start. 

The quality of the publication speaks for itself. Attracting celebrity contributors including 

Natalie Gruzlewski (Channel 9’s Getaway), Shelley Craft (The Block), Local Radio Superstar 

Sean Flanagan, Interior Designer and The Block contestant Carlene Duffy, World Ironman 

Champion Trevor Hendy and World ASP Surfing Champion Joel Parkinson, to name but a 

few, the content continues to grow in its depth of character.
