About

Our Mission

We are an independent print and online community newspaper based on Coochiemudlo Island, a subtropical island nestled just off Redland Coast, Brisbane.

Our purpose is to highlight the strengths of our community and to publish positive, uplifting and inspiring content that knits our community together. Coochie Island News enables community members, community groups, creative makers and island and Redland Coast businesses to introduce themselves, share their stories, advertise events and the products and services that benefit our community.

Coochie Island News is a great communication tool for off-island businesses to share news with Coochie Islanders and their many visitors who travel through Redland Coast on their way to and from island stays.

Our Values

  • Coochie Island News publishes positive, uplifting and inspiring content that highlights our strengths.
  • Our purpose is to share the joy of living on a small island with a big heart
  • Coochiemudlo Island is a place where community is not just a word but a lifestyle, where random acts of kindness happen everyday, among a natural beauty that we work together to protect.
