Great Ocean Quarterly is a beautiful high-quality journal of literature, art, photography, science, history and ideas, gathered around the central theme of our relationship to the oceans. It is printed on heavy stock and it goes thump when you put it down. We think it might be the world's first literary journal devoted entirely to the ocean. This issue brings to you epic images of Tasman Island, coastal architecture, surfboard shaping, beach life in the Bronx, an 18-year-old Tasmanian's adventure on the canals of France and a philosopher death-rolled by a crocodile. There is nothing like Great Ocean on earth!
