A South Coast thriller writer shares adventure hotspots; a surf coach rates the best beaches; a golfer lists his favourite courses; National Parks staff select the wildest whale-watching locations; and a poet finds inspiration in a cup at three great cafes.

This is the kind of local knowledge you’ll only find in the South Coaster magazine, the ultimate insiders’ guide to the beach and the bush south of Sydney. The magazine may be read in print or online – and it’s free!

Advertisers use the South Coaster’s printed platform to direct customers to their business – both in real life and the virtual world. Put your business on the map: advertising rates start from $43 to $599 for a full page. The mag is A5 size, printed on 90gsm colour gloss. The annual print run is 24,000, with 6000 copies snapped up in spring, summer, autumn and winter. A unique distribution network includes major attractions such as Symbio Wildlife Park, Glenbernie Orchard and Bald Hill’s Flying High Cafe. Copies may also be found at all good tourist information centres, galleries, cafes, B&Bs, post offices, newsagencies, clubs, restaurants and festivals.

The South Coaster is produced by The Word Bureau, the Illawarra's local independent publisher, the same talented team behind the much-loved 2508 District News and 2515 Coast News.
