Why Nelson Weekly? Well, it’s pretty simple really. Nelson Weekly is the only media in the region that can offer total market saturation. We go into every letterbox, every week and that includes rural homes.

We also employ more journalists than any other community newspaper in our region, that means the paper is filled with great stories each week.

Nelson Weekly is also locally owned, so we really care about making sure advertising with us, works for you.

We also work with our sister papers, the Waimea Weekly and the Motueka Golden Bay Guardian to help give our clients reach across the top of the South Island.

Nelson Weekly Ltd also publishes a monthly lifestyle magazine, Nelson Mag.

If it’s digital options you’re after, you can check out the Nelson App or Marlborough App, both owned by Nelson Weekly Ltd.
