Living in The Shires

Living in The Shires is an example of a quality local publication, telling local stories and supporting local businesses. It serves a community of six suburbs in Brisbane, and is delivered free to more than 12,000 households and businesses four times a year. In 2016, this small community magazine was shortlisted with three other publications for the Publish Awards, in the category circulation under 20,000.

Susan digs around to find interesting stories about local history and some of the amazing characters who built our suburbs and contributed to our community. She also includes articles about local fauna, our bushcare reserves, and many of the sporting and service clubs and the volunteers behind them.

Not all the stories can make it into print. Those that don’t can be found on the Living in The Shires website.
