New News Source on the Fleurieu

Thursday, 12 May 2022 will see the launch of a new newspaper for Fleurieu residents. Find out more.

A new dawn on the Fleurieu Peninsula

Fleurieu Peninsula residents will have a new source of local news when the Fleurieu Sun publishes its first edition on May 12, 2022.

The newspaper will cover news and events throughout South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula and McLaren Vale wine region.

South Australian regional newspaper publisher Andrew Manuel, who spent his formative years living in Victor Harbor, is behind the initiative.

Mr Manuel who owns the Balaklava-based Plains Producer, Two Wells Echo and Eyre Peninsula Advocate, and part-owns The Border Watch, said regional communities deserved strong local newspapers that were invested for the future.

“People need local newspapers more than ever. They keep communities connected and give local people a voice on the issues that matter to them,” Mr Manuel said.

We encourage people, especially local community and sporting groups, to send in their news and photos. Our philosophy is – if you provide it, we’ll publish it.

This is your local newspaper. Together, we will make sure it’s full of local faces, opinions and issues of importance.

The Fleurieu Sun will be available from locations throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula and McLaren Vale.
