Waihi Leader

“Waihi Leader is a weekly newspaper, well-loved by its community in Waihi and Waihi Beach.

Nestled between Hauraki and Western Bay of Plenty districts, this historic mining town never runs short of great, local stories.

Our editorial coverage extends from the beach to the gorges with one motto: To give the voice back to its diverse community.”
