Scroll down for copies of the JCG. Please see below for contact and advertising details

Jordan’s Crossing Gazette (JCG) is a publication of the Bundanoon Community Association Incorporated for the people of Bundanoon and the Southern Villages. It is a non-profit publication supported by our advertisers and distributed free of charge to all homes, business and private mail boxes in Bundanoon, as well as village stores and post offices at Exeter, Penrose and Wingello. A complimentary copy is also sent to each Wingecarribee Shire Councillor.

The magazine provides a voice for BCA Inc. and the activities and events put on by its various Sub-Committees are given prominence. In addition, an important feature are the regular columns and personality profiles – Bundanoon is such a rich source of interesting stories. JCG also keeps the community up to date with other local groups’ activities and events. There are also lifestyle stories, a bit of sport, and discussions of ideas and interests.
