About Us

The Braidwood Times is published Wednesdays and covers Braidwood and the surrounding villages of Araluen, Majors Creek, Mongarlowe, and Nerriga, with some readership across the new Queanbeyan-Palerang regional shire into Bungendore, Captains Flat Tarago and Queanbeyan.

The Southern Tablelands is one of the fastest growing regional areas of NSW and the Braidwood Times has a growing circulation as it continues to support the thriving rural farming community which includes a strong cultural sector.

It presents news of the many happenings throughout the rural areas through which it circulates. Braidwood Times has a focus on achievement and reflects a community diversifying into the arts and retailing its rich heritage.

The print edition is supported by a lively Facebook page and website with breaking news, events and commentary.

Braidwood is a thriving, bustling centre, with sheep, cattle, fruit, vegetables and horse-based industries. It is also a fast growing tourist destination. Nestled close to the escarpment which separates the South Coast coastal strip from the Southern Highlands and Canberra, the entire township of Braidwood is classified by the National Trust.

Its many beautiful old buildings now house galleries, craft shops and cafes, many of which display a rich and varied collection of paintings, photographs, pottery, glass, wool, fashion and ironmongery, produced by local artisans.
