What’s up with us during the Comm Games?

No, we haven’t rented our office out on Air BNB and booked tickets to Hawaii, we’re stoked to stick around and soak up the glory of the games. It’s an exciting moment as a publisher, to think about the hundreds of thousands of international eyes viewing our titles as they sweep through the city this April. Dreaming out loud, what would it be like to see haven in Manchester one day or scout in Singapore! Super cool!

Back to reality and bracing for an amazing, fun, sports filled couple weeks on the Gold Coast, which we certainly intend on celebrating with you in tow. But it’s still business as usual, especially us small businesses as we stand on our tippy toes and wave our arms in the air trying to get a piece of the action. “Look at me!”

You know, that’s where we come in, offering a stable (#keepingitreal even though the royals are coming to town) and a strong voice to share your story, with not only our amazing local market, and the travellers too as we position ourselves in some hot spots around town. I guess you could say we’re doing what we do best, sharing stories and giving you a voice to connect with our readership.

Here’s what we have coming up:

haven – April issue (out 29 March)

Whether you’re a sport-lover or loather, there is no way you’ll be able to escape the sports-mania this month. We figure, if you can’t beat ‘em – join ‘em!  The haven team will be getting into the spirit by celebrating active and healthy living, whether it’s team sports, yoga or getting coffee with the girls in your #activewear (ha!). Delve into our April issue for our tips on getting involved in a new activity, get the low-down on the science behind sports and find plenty of inspiration to update your activewear wardrobe – whether you’ve just finished a Pilates class or are thinking about going on that run you’ve been putting off.

Printing 20,000 copies, distributed to family friendly locations in Brisbane, Gold Coast, south to Byron Bay, database 17,000, social over 8,000

SPECIAL*: Buy one ad and we’ll write a free digital story for free (with a little help from you, plus share it in our weekly newsletter, website and Facebook).

scout – Autumn issue (out 15 March)


Just in time for the games, you’ll find our fave spots to ‘scout’ around the Gold Coast. Where can you grab a beer with your buddies and catch the rugby 7s final? Or if you’re fixed on picking up a racket or getting active yourself, let’s tee you up with some ideas on where to play. Plus let’s talk shopping, souvenirs and where to find your way to wellness while visiting the Coast. We know the Commonwealth Games will be the biggest event in town, but we’ve got a few more highlights lined up for you not to miss as we fall into a new season on the GC.

Printing 10,000 copies, distributing to holiday hotspots from Sanctuary Cove to Coolangatta, database 17,000, social reaching 1,000
