Established in 1994 the Clarence Valley Independent (formerly the Clarence Valley Review) is a wide-spread, comprehensive free news source, putting the community in touch with local affairs, council issues, and businesses.
We pride ourselves on our quality, unbiased journalism, covering local issues. Community organisations turn to the Independent to provide a free medium to reach the wider community. We believe we have always been, and will continue to be, the voice of our community.
The Clarence Valley Independent offers a positive reflection upon the community it serves. It is not constrained by any external corporate agenda and prides itself on its balanced reporting.
The paper is produced to high standards, combining interesting content, local news and sport and high quality graphic design.
The Clarence Valley Independent is published every Wednesday as full colour weekly tabloid. Our circulation is over 10,000 and is distributed widely throughout the Clarence Valley and surrounding villages.
In a time when newspapers are downsizing and going online, we strive to maintain a free printed format we know works, especially on a local scale.
