Highway Mail

At over 66 years of age, the Highway Mail is certainly a newspaper that’s walked the beat, uncovered great stories of human drama, and seen a spectacular country undergo a triumphant transformation.

Our distribution area of Pinetown is situated inland from the vibrant port city of Durban, and, like so many towns in our beautiful country, it has a rich and complex history. Founded in 1850, Pinetown became a valued pit stop for travellers and cargo carriers commuting between Pietermaritzburg and Durban. During the Anglo-Boer, however, it tragically became the home to Boer woman and children interred in concentration camps. Fortunately, this horrific chapter is long past.

The Highway Mail Newspaper currently enjoys a readership of over 54 000 pairs of eyes, and we pride ourselves on achieving exceptional levels of journalistic excellence and integrity. We continually strive to serve our communities with news that is cutting edge, 100% accurate, and highly credible. In turn, when our readers are looking for local news, events, sports and shopping bargains, we are happy to say that it us to whom they look.

Here’s to another 66 years!
