The Area News
Since 1923, we’ve been by Griffith’s side through thick and thin. We’ve been there for the community, through droughts and flooding rains.

Even as our offices burned down several years ago - The Area News didn’t skip a beat.

Since our inception we’ve been here as irrigation water transformed scrub on the edge of the Australian Outback into a lush city, and an agricultural powerhouse.

Our city is far more than what it grows however, we have an incredible lifestyle far from the streets of Sydney which one of the most welcoming multicultural communities in NSW. Griffith prides itself on being one of the food bowls of the state through drought and rain.

We’ve seen our fair share of triumphs and tragedies and how those have only made our community and our city stronger and more resilient.

As one of the most storied media outlets in Griffith, covers what’s happened, what’s happening and what will happen in the city and the region without fear or favour.
