We are a locally owned weekly newspaper and publisher based in North-East Tasmania. 


At the North-Eastern Advertiser we take pride in being an independently owned and operated newspaper, run by a dedicated team of hard-working individuals. We love our region, and we're known for covering anything and everything happening in and around the North-East. The Advertiser is the first place locals turn to stay informed about everything from farming to fashion. 

We are a community-driven business and we love recognising the individuals who help to make our region great. These town treasures are the glue that holds this region together, and we're here to tell their stories.

We also provide local businesses with a unique advertising platform that allows them reach their target audiences effectively and efficiently. Along with classic display ads, classifieds and public notices in each issue, we also host the Dorset Services Guide - a directory of North-East businesses.
