Reach 420,000 people in Australian families*

Australian Catholics is Australia's only national magazine written for Catholics of all ages and from all walks of life.

Our magazine is published four times a year - Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer - and has a circulation of over 140,000 copies on average, distributed to families through Catholic schools and parishes Australia-wide.

With more than 700,000 young people in Catholic schools, and more than 700,000 people attending Mass every week, Australian Catholics is a 'niche' publication with a committed and engaged audience that encompasses a large proportion of the Australian community.


Reaching audiences online

In addition to our print publication, we have two e-newsletters that target specific sectors within the Catholic community. 

The Catholic Teacher e-newsletter is sent out each week to around 5000 recipients in primary and secondary schools around the country. 

Meanwhile, our newly-launched Parish Life e-newsletter is being sent out to recipients in Catholic parishes across Australia. 

Australian Catholics is a great advertising opportunity because it delivers both reach and intimacy.
