Gulf News is Waiheke's iconic newspaper, published on the island since 1973. An audited member of the New Zealand Community Newspapers Association, the award-winning weekly has been through the highs and lows of community publishing, including a spell of printing on a barge at sea when local government rules temporarily forced it off-shore. Gulf News is owned and published by Pendragon Press Ltd which also publishes Waiheke Weekender. Longstanding Waiheke journalist Liz Waters is its current editor, succeeding Simon Johnston in 2008. Gulf News was previously edited by Greg Treadwell.
Well known New Zealand journalists to have worked at Gulf News include Tom Frewen, Vicki Jayne and Jim Eagles, who owned the paper for a period.
