Tasmanian Country has long-served the island’s farming and agricultural community as Tasmania’s only truly statewide paper.

Delivered every Friday to regional readers in the island’s rural heartland, as well as its remotest reaches, from King Island’s dairy farmers in the windswept Bass Strait, to Southport’s fisheries in the deep south of the Huon Valley.

The paper also boasts an entirely unique distribution method, with over 83% of circulation sent directly to primary producers and working farms via Australia Post – reaching several localities untouched by newsagent footprints, and ensuring an extremely targeted agricultural audience for advertisers.

The Country is especially popular across the state’s northern rural belt, with over 62% of
readership reaching Tasmania’s primary dairy, beef, lamb & wool producing regions, and is also continuing to grow among the state’s emerging viticulture, ecotourism and fruit-growing sectors in the state’s southeast.

Each edition features:

  • A dedicated Stock Report, detailing weekly fluctuations in the domestic and international livestock landscapes.
  • Weekly contributions from recognised industry leaders in the Wool Report, Market Talk, Cuppa TIA (Institute of Agriculture) and TFGA Matters (Tas Farmers and Graziers Association) columns.
  • Rural-specific Real Estate listings from across the state and Country Classifieds.
  • A Feature Farm in the centre spread, with an editorial focus on one of Tasmania’s recent farming success stories.
