Here at the Ashburton Guardian, we’ve been bringing the latest news to the local people since 1879. Over 140 years on from our first issue, we remain one of the few independently-owned daily newspapers in New Zealand, and that means our journalistic excellence continues to be read by over 17,000 of you, the people of Ashburton.

Ours is a town that’s growing in stature and population with every passing week, therefore its important to feel a part of the growing success story our region represents. By continuing to bring you the very best reporting of all the news and opinion that matters to you, we aim to make the Ashburton Guardian your essential source of local information.

Our office is open Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm

Reception is open 10am – 2pm
