After 14 successful years of producing the Cooloola Bay Bulletin in the Tin Can Bay region, we have witnessed the positive effect that a community news publication has on the community.

Our vision is to connect the Gympie regional residents, businesses and visitors through local stories and lifestyle articles that will help to build a stronger community.

8,000 copies of Gympie Living magazines will be distributed each month in and around the Gympie region. Advertisers benefit by having their business seen out in the community.

We aim to entertain and inform, our success will be gauged by your feedback.

Here is a link to the online version of the Cooloola Bay Bulletin:

The online version of Gympie Living will be coming soon.

Testimonials from our Readers and Advertisers


“Having only recently moved to the area we are finding the Bay Bulletin a great source of valuable and interesting community information, and congratulate you on putting out such a wonderful little publication.”

“Thank you once again for your support with the article and garage sale ad.

We raised $875 and had a huge day so this will go a long way to helping see all the kids get the proper treatment for their teeth.  Our Teacher Theavy has already told the children they will be going to the Dentist on our return and apparently they are excited.  You can tell they have never been.

Thanks again for your support.”

Regards Ros and Pete Raines (Cambodia)


“K J Homes has been advertising with Cooloola Bay Bulletin for over 13 years.   It has been our main point of advertising over these years as the locals and tourists to the area love to read it and catch up on everything that is happening around the place.

A lot of our business is from clientele seeing our ad in the Cooloola Bay Bulletin and from there they contact us. The magazines are dropped into residents letterboxes and I always see them around all the local businesses as well, so plenty of local exposure.

Rachelle has been great to work with over all these years with any changes we may need to do to our ad.

Advertise in the local magazine, you won’t regret it!”
