Welcome to The GC Minute, Gold Coast’s best media source for independent local news, tech, business and critical city insights through an easy-to-use, non-paywalled website and premium weekly newsletter.

Our team of experienced researchers, writers and dedicated digital specialists go beyond the headlines to deliver insightful stories and information that matter to our readers and the community.

In addition to our non-paywalled website, we work super hard to produce hyperlocal newsletters that curate the best of local happenings, news and reporting in a concise and engaging way that drives readers to the source and keeps them informed.

After seeing so many towns lose their local newspapers over the last few years, we are working hard to create a better way for our legendary Queensland communities to get local news digitally, but in a way that works and how they need it.
