Welcome to Regional News.

We are Wellington’s newest publication, covering what’s on, where to go, what to do, events, sport culture and history.

We are a magazine style newspaper: tabloid size in newsprint with a white cover. We present ourselves between the community newspapers and a paid magazine, but ours is free. We aim to reach the mid to high socio economic readership through our phenomenal distribution.

We have a readership of approximately 90,000 readers. We deliver along the Northern corridor as far as Paekakariki: from Petone to the Haywards, down to the Eastern Bays, through to Wellington Central and out to Seatoun. Regional News is both home delivered, and available for pick up in stands throughout the city. We are also hand delivered to inner city cafes and bars.

The fortnightly publication is available online, not only to read but also for convenient access to individual advertiser’s websites; simply click on the advertisement and you’ll be taken there directly.

We feature local news, events and personalities whilst exploring leisure and travel ideas. We house regular competitions and lifestyle features.

This is Regional News – so much more than a newspaper.


"Congrats to Regional News for being singularly the best all round summary of what's going on in the region, by far."

“The La Casa Azul image on the front cover of Regional News this week looks brilliant! We’ve been getting lots of compliments and comments like “Did you know your Frida is on the cover of Regional News?” from people we know, far and wide. The word is definitely out there.”
