The Boronia and The Basin Community News began in 1994, and publishes and distributes a monthly newspaper to around 2,300 premises. The paper has always been run by Volunteers. There is a Committee of Management with 10 members, and over 150 other Volunteers. Some of these Volunteers are Drivers who collect the papers and deliver them to the Walkers, who then deliver them to homes and other premises. This occurs monthly except for January.

The paper is funded through paid advertising, and the occasional local government small grant. The Committee of Management meets monthly at The Basin Community Hall (except for January).
