Kids on the Coast and Kids in the City are locally focused print and online magazines, bringing the best in community news, events, features and more to parents throughout our targeted areas – Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Published for over thirteen years, we set ourselves apart through our unique connection to our local market, our dedication to quality content and design, our honest and genuine approach, and our commitment to our community - for whom we exist.

Made by local parents, for local parents, it is our mission to be the first and only place families come to connect – where they are understood, united and inspired. Because of that, we are the most trusted and reliable sources of information for parents throughout our communities.

Shore Media is not just another publishing company but a team of likeminded mums and carers who bring the ‘real’ into our magazines. You will find the team often juggling deadlines with children in tow, skyping each other in our pyjamas and sharing crazy animal photos in our private Facebook group to keep us all laughing. We believe in the simple things, in enjoying family life and appreciating our wonderful corner of the world. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child and that in today’s world, that village is your community. 

We believe that parenting can be difficult yet amazing, mundane yet emotional, and we believe that you should never go it alone.

We are passionate about our local community, about local business, about education, about our local environment, and about uniting families across the area. And we have integrity in everything we do. To our readers we are the friend when they need a boost, the diary when they are stuck for something to do, and the high-five when they achieve.

Subscribe to receive the latest magazine issue, our weekly ‘What’s On’ eNewsletter and eGuides jam-packed with great reads on parenting, education, family health and wellbeing, arts and crafts, recipes, things to do and more! Best of all you can read them anywhere! But if you still love the look and feel of a physical magazine, you can find our print copy in family hotspots on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and in Brisbane.

“Passionate about our community, we connect people in a way very few others can offer."
