About Us

We Love The Central Coast

We’re all for the Central Coast – we live here, we work here, we spend our time and our dollars here and we employ locally. That’s why so many locals support us.
Central Coast Newspapers is a local, family owned business that publishes and distributes five Central Coast Newspapers every fortnight with a total print run of over 160,000 papers every month.
All staff are also locals and between them, the three papers cover the entire Central Coast.

Each paper focuses specifically on an area bound by postcodes as follows: Pelican Post – Post Codes 2256 and 2257; Coast Community Chronicle – Post Codes 2258, 2259, 2261, 2262 and 2263; and, Coast Community News – Post Codes 2250, 2251, 2260.

The papers mostly only carry editorial that is specific to the post code areas that they cover.
In this way, readers remain fully interested and engaged with the editorial and are therefore more inclined to read the entire publication and also respond better to any advertising as well.
All articles, except those generated by our journalists, are sourced and dated so that readers will know when and where the information came from and where they can perhaps get more information.
All articles are edited and given a heading and are often quite different from what was originally received.
Contributions are welcome and are preferred in email form, ideally with any relevant photographs attached, not embedded.
Contributions must include the contributor’s name, address and phone numbers. This is not for publication but name and suburb will be published and anonymous contributions will not be included.
