Roxby Downs



Our Community – Our Community





Did you know The Monitor Newspaper is community owned and operated? We have a local office, employ locals, buy local, and support locals .... and we love it!

That’s a real difference in a small community like Roxby Downs.

We are young, strong and vibrant – just like our readers – and we plan to be here through thick and thin to deliver you the best possible news, entertainment and information.

So when you choose to shop – choose to shop locally – just like us. Keep your hard-earned dollars in our region and help us support the Roxby Downs community.

Advertising in The Monitor boosts the local economy with sponsorships put back into the community every week, and not into the profits of a multi-national.


Our readers are some of the biggest spenders in the State
... find out how we can lead them to your door.





Our Readers

Our readers are your clients. They work, live and play in our region.

The Monitor was specifically launched to help bridge the communication gap between local industry, business and the community.

It’s not just about the hard news stories, The Monitor will cover your human interest stories, community events and can even spotlight your business.

And we understand budgets – because we have budgets too.
