Fleurieu Peninsula

New regional newspaper launched in the South

The Fleurieu Sun has released its very first edition with the weekly publication bringing news and events to locals.

Residents of the Fleurieu Peninsula will now have access to all current news and events happening throughout the region thanks to a new publication, The Fleurieu Sun.

Releasing its very first physical paper on Thursday May 12th, the weekly newspaper will cover local news, sport and events across the Fleurieu Peninsula and McLaren Vale in hopes to provide the community with a strong, local newspaper to keep them connected and informed.

Based in Victor Harbour, The Fleurieu Sun’s small but experienced team will help give a voice to the local community with funding for the project being provided by the Newsroom Sustainability and Digital Transformation Fund which supports the growth of rural and regional newsrooms across Australia. 

Creator and regional newspaper publisher, Andrew Manuel, grew up in Victor Harbour where his father worked for the Victor Harbour Times and understands the importance of creating and supporting the community. Mr Manuel also owns Plains Produce, Two Wells Echo and Eyre Peninsula Advocate and has seen first-hand the positive impact a local publication has on its readers.

The first-ever publication saw a jam-packed issue filled with information on major projects across the region such as the master plan for The Bluff and issues affecting the Main Street Precinct works as well as 18-pages of sports news and updates.

The Fleurieu Sun is available from locations throughout the Fleurieu and McLaren Vale as well as digitally.
