About us

We founded the Alice Springs News 1994 as the largest circulation independent newspaper in the Northern Territory of Australia, dedicated to fearless reporting of a high quality, and in strict compliance with the Journalistic Code of Ethics.


We are also committed to giving our readers a say: We published more than 20,000 comments from them since 2011.


The News appeared each Thursday in Alice Springs, with a circulation of 11,500, and covering an area of one million square kilometers of Central Australia.


Alice Springs News Online was founded in 1997 and was one of the world’s first newspapers on the web. Our online edition steadily grew in popularity, partly because of its archive of now more than seven million words, a sought-after resource about the region for tourists, business and researchers.


By March 2011 the online readership had well and truly surpassed the print edition readership, in a clear trend of the news reading public inexorably drifting to the web: We mothballed the paper edition.


We update our news section several times a day, and we have a fully searchable story archive of about seven million words.


See our web traffic summary, updated about monthly, in the right-hand sidebar on this page and all other pages.


The Alice Springs News is still free, and offers outstanding advertising opportunities.


The publication manager is Media Choice, Alice Springs, Australia.
