About Council magazine

Council looks at the wide range of issues and projects in the local government space, with a focus on keeping our readers informed of the critical industry news, updates and changes that they need to be aware of.

Council has a strong focus on providing the industry with genuinely useful tools and information that can help readers make better, more informed decisions in their daily working lives.

Council informs an essential sector, and we are passionate about helping place-makers achieve the best community experiences and wellbeing that will make our cities, towns and suburbs the best places they can be.

Council – published by Monkey Media

Council is published by Monkey Media, one of Australia’s leading trade publishers in the energy and infrastructure sectors. In addition to Council, Monkey Media also publishes Utility, Infrastructure, Energy and Pump Industry. Monkey Media is also the organiser of highly regarded industry events including Smart Cities, Digital Utilities and the Critical Infrastructure Summit.

While the way the world communicates has changed rapidly over the last 20 years, the need for tailored, quality industry information has not. At the core of Monkey Media is a team of editors, journalists and designers with in-depth knowledge of the industries we work in, and an ability to put that expertise to work to create high-quality, engaging and thought-provoking content. 

Monkey Media’s growth over the past few years has bucked the trend of most media companies, and in 2018 we were listed in the Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100.

A free digital subscription to Council is available to all local government employees in Australia – click here to subscribe.
