History and profile

Men's Health was launched in Australia in 1997.[2] The magazine is the Australian version of the American magazine of the same name, and its format and graphics are similar to that of the original U.S. version. Like all international variants of Men's Health, the Australian edition often lifts stories and images from that of the American or other foreign versions. In turn, international editions are able to lift content from the Australian version.

The magazine hosts an annual competition, Men's Health Man, which aims to find a man who embodies the physical, stylish and emotional attributes the magazine embraces. Since 2012, a Celebrity Men's Health Man has also been named.
