About us

We’re a fresh new service presenting the news and vies of the Yass Valley region of New South Wales.

We’re local

We’re a local, family-owned, small business. We have no political, council, or other affiliations, and we have no investors from outside Yass Valley. We live here, we work here, we report here. We strive to report the news and views of the valley impartially and accurately.

We’ll be calling on community contributions to build our news service, and you can contact us on Facebook or via email editorial@yasscourier.com.au

Giving back

Once we’re up and running on a sound commercial footing, we’ll be giving back to the community in which we live and work. After operating expenses, our profits will be donated to the local community and sporting groups that help make our region such a great place to live.


The original Yass Courier was published between 1856 and 1929 before being merged with other papers. Over the years the name slipped into long-forgotten history.

Resurrecting the name, we’ll also be presenting past editions of our former namesake to rekindle an interest in the history and heritage of the region.
