“Sunday is for Living. It's when most people relax and treat themselves to some time of their own. 

Whether it's time in the garden, shopping, dining, or outdoor pursuits, Living readers can enjoy a magazine that reflects the best of our favourite day of the week.” Penny Lewis, Editor, Living

Living enables advertisers to reach a large audience of relaxed Sunday readers. It encapsulates the essence of ‘me time’ in a relaxing, light, bright manner.   Nothing too deep, but not ‘once over lightly’ either.

Content includes food - easy weekend recipes from fabulous foodies like Masterchef winners Kasey & Karena, plus restaurant reviews.  Lifestyle covers local and international travel, wellbeing, fashion
& beauty, gardening and home design.

A comprehensive entertainment section looks at books, movies and music plus we carry a week’s TV listings and a challenging puzzles section.

Our popular ’Spy’ section finishes the read with a bit of light-hearted showbiz gossip and interviews with our favourite personalities.
