Hawkesbury Courier-Map

Residents receive the Hawkesbury Courier delivered free each Friday. The Hawkesbury Courier is a source of community news and entertainment guide for the weekend, with an extensive classified section. The Courier’s own home delivery service ensures household penetration is maximised.

The Hawkesbury region is located in North Western Sydney and is a mixture of rural and residential with an average of three people per household.

The population is a mix of well established homes and new development areas. 81.4% of the work force travels to work by car (either driver or passenger). Penrith or Blacktown are popular destinations for work and shopping.

Tourism is a major industry, estimated at around $30 million. Ninety-six per cent of small businesses in the Hawkesbury employ approximately 20 persons.

The Hawkesbury region is broken into three main shopping areas - Windsor, Richmond and North Richmond. Each is serviced by at least one national grocery retailer. The Richmond Marketplace is the area’s major shopping centre, supported by a host of national retail store chains.

The inflow of new residents ensures the market continues to grow.

This publication uses a T84 Modular layout.
