Our vision is to connect Gympie region residents, businesses and visitors to our region through local stories and lifestyle articles. These stories help us to grow as a community, and build a stronger sense of pride and connection to this place.

Rachelle Rose has successfully edited the Cooloola Bay Bulletin for over 14 years. Her team witnessed the positive effect that a community publication can have on its community. It was then she decided to launch Gympie Living in March 2018.

Lesa Bell has had the privilege of continuing to watch the the magazine grow since February 2019.

8,500 copies of Gympie Living magazines are distributed each month South to the Mary Valley, West to Goomeri, and East to Cooloola, then in and around Gympie CBD through shops and home delivery.  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.

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!”
