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 one million dollars has been donated back to the community!

Submissions are now open for the first round of grants for 2021!

The Cooroy Rag has $15,000 to give back to the community and local community groups can now apply for grants of $500 to $2500 cash. 

Submissions close July 31. See how to apply here.

Each month, 10,000 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.
