Portfolio and Blog of freelance Melbourne journalist Sue Peacock

Home

I am a freelance journalist and writer who has covered everything from the stock market to the Olympics in a 20 year career writing for major newspapers, magazines, corporates and online. My recent work covers legal affairs, finance, agribusiness, environment and sustainability, lifestyle and design, gardening and slow living. I was a business journalist on the Perth daily The West Australian and wrote regularly for Fairfax mastheads The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald before becoming a freelance journalist.

Down a Dirt Road is a collection of musings and anecdotes following our escape from urban living to a more enriching life in country Victoria. Ok, we’re still within the tree change border, but we’ve swapped the Frankston train line (literally) on our back fence for ten acres complete with chooks, a couple of ponies, a dog called Ned, a breathtaking and abundant orchard, market-sized veggie patches and a comfy house surrounded by walls of greenery. Our road to salvation is a dirt road called Henshalls, where instead of the constant clank and clamour of our old address near the station,  we enjoy a place so quiet I can hear the hum of a car on a distant hill and the magpies warbling in the garden.

I currently write regularly for The Sunday Age, Open Gardens Australia, the Australian Business Environment Network, and Australian Country magazine.  For examples of my work see Previous Work or click on the articles in Portfolio (see bottom of the page)
