PakMag exists to help local families connect, learn and grow. 

Our Community Noticeboard helps you share your message with our thriving community.

Whether you are a mum, dad, grandparent, student, community group, not-for-profit, sporting team, school, business or other local organisation with a good news story or event to share – tell us about it!

We are looking for:

  • Good news stories
  • Profile pieces on local people and little legends, who make our community a better place, have achieved something great, or have an interesting story to share.
  • Information on fundraisers and other local events, to help spread awareness and support your cause

Maybe you’re a local sporting team who have won a State Championship, or you know a school teacher who has won an award and deserves acknowledgement, a local business who’ve secured the coveted ‘best pie’ award at the National titles or you’ve got a sign-on event, community day or fundraiser we should know about – we’d love to hear from you.

Basically… if there is something significant that has happened or is about to happen in the community – shout it from the pages of the PakMag Community Noticeboard for all to see!
