The Foothills Community Magazine
The Foothills, published through Coonara Community House in Upper Ferntree Gully, provides information on environmental projects, local personalities, business editorials, significant places and historical events. It is a full color newspaper which arrives in the community once every two months. We also have space for advertisers who provide funding for the newspaper. The foothills is staffed by dedicated volunteers who have a passion for sharing news, developing their skills and enjoy being part of a committed group. We are always looking for new faces to help out.
