About Jocelyn Watts:

The Visionary Behind Jocelyn Magazine

newspaper report

Maryborough Herald EditorJocelyn Watts

Hello readers! I’m Jocelyn Watts, storyteller and founder of Jocelyn Magazine, your digital lifestyle publication covering food, drink, wellness, culture, travel adventures, and more.

I’ve donned many hats over the years, from newspaper editor to journalist, and even a corporate communications officer, hopping through various industries like a true corporate gypsy.

Life’s too short to be confined to one career, right?

So, I took a detour into the entrepreneurial world with my wedding and portrait photography business. Picture this–capturing life’s precious moments through the lens while embracing the beauty of Queensland’s Fraser Coast, my little slice of paradise.

After 36 years of living, working and travelling with my late husband, Don Watts, I’ve settled into a semi-retired lifestyle, enjoying the wonders of Hervey Bay, Maryborough, and K’gari.

When I’m not busy sharing my latest blog post and crafting travel narratives, memoirs, and short stories, you’ll catch me playing croquet, breaking a sweat at the gym, tending to my townhouse, or soaking up moments with family and friends.

Beyond the pen and lens, I’m also an advocate for sustainable living and a supporter of mental health charities like Beyond Blue, Lifeline, and the Black Dog Institute.

So, join me on this adventure, whether through the pages of Jocelyn Magazine, the pixels of your screen, or the fleeting moments of your own life. Let’s embrace the transformative power of storytelling and connection. Cheers to the ride! 💖

Jocelyn In The Media

Community Volunteer

Jocelyn is a community volunteer who regularly gives her time, energy, and expertise to various groups.

At the Hervey Bay Croquet & Mallet Sports Club, she is a volunteer content provider and administrator for the club’s Facebook Group.

The former Rotary Club of Maryborough Sunrise member continues to support that club with photography services for its fundraising calendars and special events.

She also volunteers as an usher and doorkeeper at the Brolga Theatre in Maryborough, Queensland.

In 2000, Jocelyn’s submission won the community competition to name the new riverside entertainment and convention venue.

Her early years in the Girl Guide and Scouting movements inspired the name Brolga.

While camping near her hometown of Barcaldine, she watched brolgas dancing at Lara Wetlands and years later re-told the Aboriginal Dreamtime legend of Brolga to Cub Scouts while serving as their leader.

In 2005, another of Jocelyn’s written submissions secured Maryborough, the first Guinness World Record for the most people on a pub crawl.

She has also volunteered her PR and photography skills to community groups, including school committees and Maryborough Masters Swimming.
