Coal Coast : a term which embraces our industrial history while celebrating our glittering coastline.

A quarterly lifestyle publication produced in the Illawarra, Coal Coast magazine keeps readers informed of local events and turns the spotlight on the region's many talents. 

With diverse, carefully curated content and beautiful photography – including inspiring and informative editorials, and thought-provoking features – Coal Coast magazine is a true celebration of life in our little pocket of the world.

As a free, independent publication, we tell real stories with authenticity and passion. Coal Coast is designed to be read on the beach, displayed on a coffee table, lovingly stored on a bookshelf as part of a collection or passed onto a friend. In this fast-paced world we live in, we aim to feature timeless content that endures – we hope you take joy from each issue for many years to come.
