Life and Leisure (AUS/NZ)
David Bowie's presence down under reached a peak during the 1980s when he traveled extensively in Australia and even had a place of residence in Sydney.

On these pages, we look at some of his extra curricular activities in the land down under...

Kincopal, Elizabeth Bay, Sydney

An exclusive tour around Bowie's old neighbourhood in Sydney.

Ayers Rock (Uluru)

Something of a child hood ambition for David Bowie was a visit to the Australian monolith / icon. Here is a bit more about on that.

Bowie and Richard Butler (1983)

While filming in Australia, Bowie met with the lead singer of The Psychedelic Furs. This is an exclusive story as told by our man on the scene, Bruce Butler. The photos were taken by his friend.

Marae Visit, New Zealand (1983)

During the 1983 Serious Moonlight Tour, Bowie became the first rock star to be invited to a Maori Marae. In 2009, Bowie Downunder member Sam Coley completed a radio documentary on this visit.

Lovetown (1989)
