The Illawarra Mercury

Colonial Illawarra was floundering under the weight of dilapidated roads, filthy drinking water and a poor system of leadership when the Illawarra Mercury was founded in 1855.

Today The Illawarra Mercury is more than just the printed publication, it is an award winning news media organisation focused on being a strong advocate for our region.

In a region with a population of over 400,000, The Illawarra Mercury is a vital information provider to the Illawarra both in print and online. It services a vibrant, technology driven community tackling the challenges of the 21st century.
