The Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star is a Brisbane owned and based independent newspaper which has no connection with any media group in Australia or overseas. It is currently the largest privately owned general newspaper in the Greater Brisbane area and one of only a handful of independents remaining in south-east Queensland.
The ﬁrst edition of the newspaper appeared on November 18, 1987 and it has been published continuously each Wednesday since (with the exception of an annual two week break over Christmas).
The Star is professionally letterbox delivered to 14 suburbs in Brisbane's north east with bulk deliveries to businesses within its boundaries and some surrounding areas.
Editorial content primarily consists of local news relevant to the distribution area of the paper, augmented with regular features like Health, Beauty & Fitness, Home Improvements and Motoring Scene, Real Estate, Boating & Fishing.
The Star has been a dominant force in Brisbane North's local media thanks to its high ethical standards in reporting, its level of community involvement and, of course, great value advertising in both display and classiﬁeds coupled with attentive and friendly service.
