about us

The Village News is the leading local publication reflecting the views and lifestyles of residents, workers and visitors in Brisbane’s most desirable suburbs which include New Farm, Teneriffe, Newstead, Fortitude Valley, Spring Hill, Petrie Bight and Kangaroo Point.

Extensive urban renewal has transformed these once sleepy suburbs into thriving, eclectic and extremely trendy inner-city locations. The combined suburbs are home to a rapidly growing population of educated, high-income, professionals; mixing easily with the families who continue to call the area home. As one of the first precincts in Brisbane to have high rise living there is also a large number of empty nesters/retirees.

The village atmosphere results from a number of modern cultural influences, including boutique retail shopping and a café society the envy of the rest of the city. Alfresco dining mixes with the charm of Brisbane’s early history, catering to residents who have a strong social conscience and commitment to the inner-city environment. The Village News has a commitment to an open free flowing editorial design that allows the advertiser to be amongst the editorial and not crammed in with other ads.

The Village News is printed on a lightweight coated gloss stock which makes it look great on the coffee table has a strong local community news focus and including regular sections on dining, entertainment, local social events and property. Popular monthly columns include Tony Jones Diary, Village People by Gary Balkin and Seniors Voice by Tony Townsend.
