At The Illawarra Mercury, we’re local and we love it.
There are countless reasons we love to call the Illawarra home – and you can see a few dozen of them in this short video featuring some of the amazing work of our passionate photographers and journalists.
The local faces and places showcased in this video represent just a fraction of the stories we tell.

Everyone here at The Illawarra Mercury feels privileged to be able to bring you the local stories that matter – whether it’s breaking news as it happens, celebrating our champions and the quiet achievers who inspire us, or asking the important questions of our community’s key decision-makers.
