OZ magazine was published in Australia and London between 1963 and 1973 and under the stewardship of Richard Neville and later also Jim Anderson and Felix Dennis. This magazine left the door wide open for everything wild, illegal, outrageous, radical and until then largely unimaginable.
OZ magazine is reproduced by permission of Richard Neville in its full original glory on the University of Woollongong’s website.
The satirical Australian Oz was a magazine published between 1963 and 1969, while the British incarnation was a “psychedelic hippy” magazine which appeared from 1967 to 1973.
As a part of the Underground press, Oz was considered to be a public menace at the time and its creators subject to two celebrated obscenity trials, one in Australia in 1964 and the other in the United Kingdom in 1971.
