If you are looking for a marketing and advertising business partner – look no further than What’s On In Our Backyard! The support from the team and Saffron is brilliant – they are so easy to work with, professional, responsive, helpful and provide great advice on how to market our business to families across the region. We recently advertised in the Winter [2018] edition of the magazine with wonderful editorial and ad development support. Our business has been advertised through their website as well as social media channels and we are thrilled with the engagement we are receiving through their channels.

Recently we invited Saffron and a guest to dine with us and we have received a lovely review from Saffron which we are able to use on our social media and website pages. Highly recommend engaging with What’s On In Our Backyard for effective and affordable Marketing and Advertising in the Port Stephens region. Thank you Saffron and team!


What’s On In Our Backyard is published in print and online, with a circulation of 10,000 magazines and a monthly social media reach of approximately 15,000 (based on recent Facebook statistics). It’s a one stop shop guide to family life in Port Stephens and the no.1 resource for family-friendly information.

First published in 2010, the magazine is distributed free to local and visiting families four times a year and contains a whole range of useful information from what’s on in the local area to family friendly services, articles, sporting and fitness activities and much, much more.

Our team will assist you in getting your message in front of a niche demographic of family decision makers, who are interested in what you have to offer them. It is quite simply the only media in Port Stephens that offers such a targeted message in such a uniquely informative and entertaining manner both in print and online.
