Eureka Street Plus

Eureka Street Plus is a place where respectful in-depth public conversation can take place in the grey area between polarities; a place to air differing perspectives, thoughts and concerns without fear of reprisals. It’s about making space to further enable the productive conversations necessary for an engaged, functioning society.

The current Eureka Street offering of opinion and analysis aimed at starting the conversation will remain available and free to access. We’re simply allowing access to extra, premium content for those who want it. What can you expect from a Eureka Street Plus subscription? Access to all the premium subscriber-only content, which includes:


Eureka Street Plus Bi-monthly Essays.

Deeper conversations must have a starting point, and the Eureka Street Plus Bi-monthly essays provide just that. The authors, experts in their fields, present their case for a specific topic. The lengthy format is specifically designed to provide an in-depth commentary, with its main aim to evoke further discussion.

Eureka Street Plus Roundtables.

Three-way articles from three writers are full conversations in miniature. These monthly pieces will bring together a number of current and new contributors to offer ideas and insights on pressing issues in the public conversation.

Eureka Street Plus Stray Thoughts.

These bite-sized weekly editorials and brief conversation starters will come from our editorial team, picking up on new and interesting ideas around the internet and offering a starting point for conversation among subscribers.

 Eureka Street Book Corner.

Eureka Street has a long history of reviewing works of non-fiction, literature and poetry. Here we lean into that tradition with monthly review essays. Each review essay will be lengthy and explore ideas posed by, and going beyond, the book in question. These will come from Andrew Hamilton and a suite of Eureka Street writers.

Eureka Street Plus Community Forums.

Engaging in the public conversation in real time is the aim of Eureka Street Plus Community Forums. This is a flexible forum providing exclusive online access to Eureka Street guests and writers to discuss articles written or current issues.


It feels both like a humble beginning and a continuation, consistent with those days starting out in a small office by a Richmond laneway 30 years ago. The magazine’s offering has expanded, but our ongoing project remains: publishing reflective, high-quality writing. At this strange point in history, furthering productive conversation about issues that matter continues to be as essential as ever.

Eureka Street Plus will require a paid yearly subscription of $90 p.a. (or $9 monthly). Sign up today and you can read our collection of book reviews and roundtables and essays including ‘The Uluru Statement, the Constitution and the Election’ by Fr Frank Brennan. It’s a worthy starting point for the deeper conversations we’re looking to facilitate through our subscription offering.

So please join us. Subscribe here, join the conversation and add to the groundswell for lively, civil debate about values. And in the process enjoy yourselves. Welcome to Eureka Street Plus.
