The Rising Sun North Coast was established in 1986 to fast track and project a visual niche into a community that required a free, for-the-community advertising-based newspaper. Its establishment sought to effectively balance the promotion of visual media and cutting-edge journalism.

The launch of the Avant Garde Rising Sun proves to be a long-awaited breath of fresh air in the print media. The response from the advertisers, industry and most importantly the readers, augured well beyond their expectations. In having established a major news platform, we have been careful not to just maintain, but also to strengthen The Rising Sun’s core principles.

The Rising Sun North Coast, was Established 1986 and has been independently owned since 1997 by Clive Lutchanna
