Allied Press continues to fly the flag for readers in the South.
Despite the limitations and restrictions of Alert Level 4, we are delighted we will be publishing and delivering the majority of our community newspapers to households and businesses this week.

As a lockdown bonus, Otago Daily Times readers will find a free copy of Extra!, our award-winning publication, in today’s edition.

This will keep younger readers entertained with fun activities. Answers are available online at:

Allied Press will also be publishing The News (Central Otago), Mountain Scene (Queenstown), The Star (Dunedin), delivered with your ODT on Friday, Oamaru Mail, Clutha Leader, The Ensign (Gore), The Courier (Timaru), North Canterbury News, Southern Rural Life, The Ashburton Courier, Bay Harbour News and the Selwyn Times, although there may be some changes to distribution.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to publish the Southland Express (Invercargill), the Cromwell Bulletin, The Star (Christchurch) and Christchurch community papers.

Look out for the Wedding Guide in tomorrow’s ODT and of course all the latest information on the ever-changing Covid-19 situation.




Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
