The Cranbourne News primarily services the towns of City of Casey twins of Cranbourne, Hampton Park and the City’s coastal towns.

First settled in 1836, the region has strong agricultural roots. Cranbourne is characterised by residential developments and the modern Cranbourne Shopping Centre, however it is perhaps best known for Cranbourne Racecourse and as the home of the Cranbourne Cup. The Cranbourne Training Complex is the biggest in the southern hemisphere, with plans to increase its capacity beyond the 800 racehorses trained out of it each week.

The City of Casey is located in one of the fastest growing corridors in Australia, with a population tipped to match that of Canberra in the next 20 years with more than 50 new households established each week in this vibrant section of Victoria.
