Mildura Weekly is Sunraysia’s largest circulating and number-one read newspaper, reaching more than 23,700 homes and businesses each Friday. It is a free, full-colour tabloid publication, containing the region’s largest real estate section, the Real Estate Guide, as well as a very popular motoring section, Go Auto.
The paper is distributed throughout greater Sunraysia, including the outlying towns of Robinvale, Ouyen and Wentworth and as far afield as Broken Hill and Warracknabeal and is full of news, features, sport and community information. The paper is delivered to 16,725 homes throughout Mildura and the surrounding townships of Irymple, Red Cliffs, Merbein and Wentworth. All home-delivered papers are individually wrapped in flat plastic, ensuring they are received in the best possible condition and not affected by the elements, but without the annoyance of rolled papers, which can be difficult to read.
Being environmentally-conscious, we ensure the plastic used to wrap our papers is photo biodegradable. In addition to our home-delivered papers, there are more than 90 distribution points throughout the region, including newsagents, convenience stores, real estate agents and supermarkets.
The Mildura Weekly is locally owned and operated, employing 20 permanent staff and a network of another 30 people who assist in delivering the paper each Friday. All activities associated with producing and publishing the paper, including advertisement design, news gathering and photography are conducted in-house at our premises at 424 San Mateo Avenue, Mildura.
The Mildura Weekly is printed by Border Mail Printing in Wodonga and transported back to our San Mateo Avenue premises where it is plastic-wrapped ready for distribution each Friday.
The paper is also very active in the community, supporting many local events, activities and charities. In addition to publishing the paper, Mildura Weekly produces a local phone directory – Mildura Green & Gold Local Phonebook – 20,000 copies of which are produced each year. These are freely distributed to all homes and business in Mildura and surrounding areas and feature large, easy-to-read print, a user-friendly layout and a high volume of community information. The Mildura Green & Gold Local Phonebook has proven very popular among Sunraysia residents. The Mildura Green & Gold Local Phonebook also has a significant digital presence that draws on the latest technology, including an updated website component and user-friendly smartphone app. The app is free and available for both Apple and Android devices simply by searching for ‘Mildura phone book’.
