Advertise With Us


Welcome to the Koori Mail Advertising Department. There’s more than 100,000 reasons why you should advertise with the Koori Mail. That’s the number of readers we have every edition, a figure we can guarantee thanks to our Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) audit and our readership, which has been set independently at more than 12 per copy of the paper by McNair Ingenuity Research. Koori Mail is the only ABC audited Indigenous newspaper, and our readership is double that of our nearest competitior. If you want to reach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and people interested in Indigenous Affairs, we’re the place to be.



The Koori Mail is published fortnightly, on a Wednesday. You can check particular deadlines by viewing our Publication Dates and Advertising Deadlines above.

Bookings for advertising usually close at 5pm on the Wednesday prior to publication, and all material should be received by 5pm on the Thursday prior to publication. Please liaise with our Advertising Department (phone 02 66 222 666) if you need a time extension.
