We Live and Love the Burdekin

We’re all about the Burdekin. We live here, we work here, our families share experiences together here. Being locally owned and operated, we understand you and the issues that concern you.

At the Burdekin Local News, we aim to provide an informative and vibrant representation of the Burdekin community. Published every Thursday, we’ll keep you informed about recent news and events.

The Burdekin Local News embraces everything that a community newspaper should, reporting on current issues and events: farming, business, lifestyle, education, tourism and sport.


   GIVE locals a platform to speak and be heard.
      SHOW how our everyday, ordinary heroes accomplish extraordinary things.
         HIGHLIGHT and celebrate our region’s natural beauty and unique culture.

Maintaining our strong partnership with our community is vitally important – we love to give our neighbourhoods a platform to speak and your contributions to our newspaper are always welcome.

Please send your emails to editor@burdekinlocal.com.au, preferably with relevant photos attached, with your name, address and phone number. Only your first name and suburb will be printed.

Our commitment to you is that we will work ethically and tirelessly to be your advocate, keeping you connected and updated. You can trust us to be an authentic voice for you and the people of our local area.
