Burke's Backyard magazine to close

March 2013 will be this famous magazine's last issue
Burke's Backyard Publishing, a partnership between ACP Magazines (now Bauer Media: The Australian Women's Weekly, and Harper's Bazaar among others) and CTC Productions, announced that, after nearly 15 years (first issue July, 1998), the final issue of Burke's Backyard magazine would be the March 2013 issue.

Don Burke, Director of CTC Productions said: "I'd like to thank the people of Australia for 30 years of generous support of Burke's Backyard radio, TV and magazine.

"Burke's Backyard began in 1982 as a radio program on 2UE in Sydney, in 1987 the TV program went to air and in July 1998 the magazine began.

"The way Australians took Burke's Backyard to their hearts and families is something I will never forget and I would like to thank them for it.

"30 years is an amazing time for support for these activities to exist but in recent times the circulation and advertising for the magazine were underachieving and it ceased to be profitable. The partnership therefore was forced to close the magazine.

The Burke's Backyard YouTube Channel, website and books will continue."
