Weekender Sales Director Chris Pennisi at the paper’s Penrith base

Our print edition is released weekly on Fridays. Here’s how you can get a copy:

Home Delivered

The Western Weekender is home delivered to some 50,000 houses, businesses and units within the Penrith Local Government Area. Home delivered copies are plastic-wrapped to keep them nice and crisp for your reading pleasure, and to protect them from rain.

Penrith is an expanding city. Not all streets and suburbs are covered by home delivery, but most are. If your street isn’t getting the paper, you can lodge a request by emailing [email protected].

Bulk pick-up points

The Western Weekender can be collected from key locations across the Penrith Local Government Area including service stations, supermarkets, shopping centres and clubs.
