about us

Young. Independent. Fearless.
(& a little cheekyย ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Want to know where the after party is? We got you fam.

But youโ€™re probably wondering who we are exactly right? What is 5Why? Great question.

Weโ€™re an independent publisher made by young Australians for you – our own mates, friends and colleagues. Navigating new adulthood together, one how to at a time.

From the simple day to day shit to big life decisions, weโ€™re right beside you. Discovering, stumbling and learning from our f*ck ups.

The who, what, where, when and how of getting your shit together. From the job interview to the secret gig,ย weekend getaway to overseas culture adventure.

We love supporting locals, the up and comers in arts, business, music, cafes/bars and everything in between.

So come stumble, party and live with us. None of us are perfect โ€“ so letโ€™s be un-perfect together.
