The Coolum & North Shore Advertiser was born in Coolum in 1990, under the ownership of Terry King. It soon became a household staple in Coolum where readers could stay up to date on local events, community news, and social and government issues concerning local residents. 

The Advertiser is a wholly independently owned newspaper that initially circulated to households between Peregian Beach and Pacific Paradise. In November 2016 under the ownership of publisher Kerry Brown and editor Richard Bruinsma, it was a natural progression to extend circulation into Bli Bli, leading to the current fortnightly distribution of 10,000 papers to homes and businesses across the region.

In May 2018, ownership of the Advertiser passed to publisher Michelle Box and soon after, local Coolum journalist Vanessa Bacon-Hall took the helm as editor. With a small but dedicated team that also includes graphic designer Katie Buckley and paginator Rodney Drew, the Advertiser continues to support local community news and promote local private enterprise. 

The Advertiser is a tabloid-style publication (285mm x 405mm) published fortnightly and delivered to all houses and businesses, as well as bulk deliveries at strategic locations. There is something for everyone in the Advertiser with regular features, a free classifieds section selling household bargains, community notices, tide times, council and govt updates, local events, and loads of general local information.
