Complimentary 2-month Audible trial

Subscribers can redeem a complimentary 2-month trial to Audible.com.au*, where you can listen to Boy Swallows Universe or any other audiobook from the Audible.com.au catalogue of more than 300,000 audiobooks and audio shows.


Your 2-month trial will give you one free credit to use on any audiobook each month. Audible.com.au entertainment features bestsellers, new releases and Audible Original content. This month’s top recommendation is Boy Swallows Universe by The Weekend Australian Magazine’s feature writer, Trent Dalton


Boy Swallows Universe is a critically acclaimed and a multi-award winning national bestseller. Set in the housing estates at the fringes of Brisbane during the 1980s, it is the coming-of-age story of Eli Bell and his mute brother August, as they navigate a complicated environment of drugs, crime and domestic violence — while doing the normal teenage stuff like having reckless adventures and falling in love.
