About the Cooroy Rag

A community-owned newspaper, we believe the Cooroy Rag is the only newspaper in Australia to give all of its profits (after costs) back to the community.

Since 2000, close to $1m has been donated back to the community!

Every year, the Cooroy Rag gives money back to the community and local community groups in the form of cash grants. Grant submissions are open twice a year. Details of submission dates and guidelines for 2022 will be available here.

Every three weeks, 7500 copies of the Cooroy Rag are produced by a dedicated team of experienced locals and distributed far and wide throughout the Noosa hinterland. Since 1961, the Cooroy Rag has been a voice for the community, a billboard for events and a platform for local advertisers – and it will continue to do so, for many more years to come.
