In March 2020, the Manningham Leader ceased publication, leaving the City of Manningham without a local newspaper. Manningham Life was founded to fill the gap — to connect and inform our community. We are a social enterprise, and our focus is on our community: residents, businesses, community organisations, events etc., and our fantastic content is contributed by residents and groups.

Our first issue was published in May 2021. Our bimonthly publication is currently distributed free to 20,000 households in Bulleen, Doncaster, Doncaster East, Templestowe Lower and Templestowe, and copies are also available for pick up from our local libraries and some shops.  Manningham Life is also available to read online.
