"Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen." (Michael Jordan)


Elizabeth and Alex Tickle are prime examples of those people who somehow just make it happen.

Regional Lifestyle magazine has evolved through Elizabeth and Alex’s long-term interest in quality lifestyle magazines, the rural way of life and their passion for regional communities and the people and businesses that make them so unique. Their dream has quickly been made a reality, from the first serious discussions in December 2012 to the first edition being on shelves in June 2013.

Elizabeth has spent her professional life in education as a teacher, facilitator and in executive roles. She has always had a passion for the communications industry and has held a range of media and communication positions throughout her career, within her community and beyond. Elizabeth has relished the opportunity to collaborate with local councils and businesses to promote the beautiful regions across New South Wales.

Alex Tickle – Publisher, Distribution & Advertising

As a fifth generation grazier, Alex has spent a lifetime on the land and has a natural affinity with the rural way of life.
