Posts relating to Australian Macworld magazine as hosted by Archive.org have been scanned by myself and placed online to reflect the Apple Macintosh industry in Australia at the time of publication. I took on this scanning project as I could not find a single entry online of Australian computer magazines related to Apple. Please enjoy the high quality scans including advertisements which can be best bit!
You are welcome to contact me if you would like the original file as I can see Archive.org has applied some unwanted processing to the PDF.
