In January 1956 the Bush Music Club started publishing the collected songs and music in its own magazine Singabout, the journal of Australian Folksong.

Over the years the Bush Music Club has brought out various publications to help spread the music, dances and songs of our Australian heritage. In the early days of the revival, Singabout was the only regular journal for publication of songs and music recorded by the pioneer field collectors. Our recognition of the important seminal role of Singabout magazine led to the 1985 anthology Singabout - Selected Reprints. This presents 86 songs, 8 poems and one yarn, agonisingly selected as the best, from the host of beaut material published over the 12 years of Singabout.
