Huge thanks to Pakmag and the wonderful work by Bree and the Team. You guys helped us raise our kids and we are grateful for what we learned over many years reading. We loved the focus on family, embracing local community and the love of being local to North Queensland. Wishing Bree and the Team all the very best in their respective transitions.

I lived in Townsville for many years and still visit regularly for holidays with the kids and my first stop has always been to get the latest copy of pakmag so I know what is happening for kids and families. I once won a balance bike care of pakmag that my little boy loved for many years. I enjoyed the articles, the info, the kids colouring section. It was a fantastic publication and I'm so sad it has reached the end of the road. Thanks so much Bree and team for many years of hard work.

Thanks for a little magazine packed with amazing competitions, fun activities and everything all about kids. I know it takes a dedicated team to be able to produce good quality and engaging content month after month. My girl always grabbed a copy when we were out shopping (sometimes I ended up getting triple copies because she loved the pictures). I always loved getting the email updates and the opportunity to read up on what mattered to families in the community and now its going digital - I'll still be able to get it! Thanks PakMag

My 11yr old always grabs a copy of PakMag, if she isn't with me I get it for her. We don't have much of a social circle so she loves going to PakMag events. Her favourite so far was the Halloween event at sugarworld 2 yrs ago. She had an absolute ball on the slides and we had fun playing mini golf etc together.

Dear Bree and your amazing Pakmag Team, I was so chuffed and so sad to pick up your final edition of Pakmag. Chuffed because I know it’s a part of publication history and was full of heartfelt stories. and sad because it will take me a while to stop looking for it at my local grocery store. Easter won’t be the same without it. My kids love the fun kids colouring-ins and activity ideas. I love hearing from ‘real mums’ and experts in Pakmag who might offer one tip that helps in that time of need. Thank you all for your sacrifices and efforts in filling the gap that was so needed for us parents - especially when we were “first time” mums and dads. I’ve still got a couple of copies floating around at home from those early days with pages folded and paragraphs circled with ideas and tips to help keep me sane. Thank you for supporting local and regional businesses also. You gave us a platform to reach out on. All the best with the digital world. Will keep an eye out for Pakmag events in the future. All the best and thank you again! Aimee xo

I loved picking up our copy of Pakmag from our local swim school! Checking out what’s on locally and entering the odd competition from time to time. The articles were fantastic, short reads to full length! Tips and ideas were always a bonus! Cheers from us! Nik n Mads!

PakMag has been a part of our family's life for so long, providing entertains and meaningful content and connecting us to a range of community events and services. It is always so nice to see a new edition displayed on shelves at daycare, the local supermarket, and at our health care centre. I will miss the print edition but will no doubt be able to keep up with PakMag online!

Thank you Bree and the whole team for having this outlet for many many parents. Rest assure that all your advice giving was taken and applied. Sometimes at 2am reading whilst nursing , trying to stay awake. We made it to every Event ♥️ For me, you made Cairns feel like home. I mean it’s been 12 of living here! And I’ve appreciated having your magazine. Thank you, and hope to see you around.

Such a great resource for parents. The local activity calendar was very useful. Good memory for me would be the Halloween night at Sugarworld. Such a special night with the kids..

Being a parent is the greatest thing and also the hardest. There’s days you will laugh til you cry, and days you will cry til you laugh. PakMag has always provided solid advice and a sense of community through various platforms, whether it be in print or online. Not to mention the activities and what’s on recommendations to help bust boredom. It’s been an incredibly useful tool in the parenting armamentarium, to help us do the best we possibly can.

Pakmag is such a great guide for everyone in the community. The resources, tips and anecdotes about children are practical, user-friendly, and are not just for parents. As a teacher, I have found the articles insightful and the professional development opportunities, beneficial. Bravo Bree!

Thank you PakMag for your help and wisdom. We went through a traumatic ime when our 10 week old grandson lost his mum suddenly. You have helped two grandparents, who have become part time parents again, make these last few years fun and safe with your information and articles. Well done for the quality you provided.

Love picking up a Pakmag when out and about to stash in my bag for later or moments when I find myself waiting and don't want to scroll my phone! The kids loved the activities and it is always handy to know what what is going on for families in the local region.

We always looked forward to the latest edition of PAKMAG, it was a source of great parenting information for me when my son was little, and the activities organised were so great. They got us out and about with other families. Having no family support when my son was little and not many people to help around us was very isolating and PAKMAG really helped with all the awesome information every month. Thanks Bree and the PAKMAG team for putting your heart and soul into this for so long. You have helped so many parents like me who were just trying to find their way through this parenting journey. 😊

As a grandmother to the most adorable 5 grandkids in the world ( I’m not biased!) PAkmag has been my “go to” to keep abreast of all things baby and kid wise whether it’s sound advice from contributors, heart warming real life stories, what’s on to entertain the little ones and so much more in this wonderful FREE mag. Congratulations to all involved with helping the environment with going paperless. I look forward to the next editions on line. Keep up the fabulous work you do with educating an aging GMA!

I would love to give a very big shout out to Bree and the team at Pak mag who have always given us things to do with our kids. I would also send a huge thank you to Bree for helping us a few years ago with our son who we almost lost at sugar world at the Halloween event. He would of been a lot worse if it wasn't for all of Bree's help and guidance. You helped me over come so much fear and helped me keep my calm. So thank you you are an amazing women and no words can express how this family is so great full of you. ❤️

Thank you for all your hard work over the years. I first came across and read your magazine when I was a new mum during the 2020 covid lockdowns etc. I still have your 'Easy outings for you and your little one' and 'Pram friendly walks' articles saved on my phone as these were a real life saver for me at the time and are still valuable now I have an active toddler. We also enjoyed your recent Easter Event. Thank you

I actually listened to your speech today at the Easter event. Most published mags out of all private magazines. Absolutely amazing. What you have done for our community is amazing. We've been to most of your events. We will miss them and our favourite magazine. I really hope your future dreams work out. It would be amazing to see our youth doing articles and events. Thankyou for everything you've done.

I have been an avid reader of pakmag right from its inception. I was lucky enough to be asked to have a stall at pakmags 1st birthday on the esplanade to recruit more members for Girl Guides and sell Girl Guide biscuits. Pakmag also published two articles in their magazine about Girl Guides which resulted in us gaining more youth members because of these articles. I will miss pakmag and thanks so much for your support of Tropical North Region Girl Guides over the past 16 years. A big Thankyou for the Easter extravaganza today i took my Granddaughter and she loved it.

Dear Bree, Thankyou for stepping into so many of our lives. I always loved to read "The thing is .." My favourite is still tucked away in my miscellaneous pile from Oct 2019 - Ain't no Mumma got time for this type of treatment! Step up or step off. I have always loved your honesty and integrity. I also love that you single out and identify your team and thank them, if anyone reads front cover as well. Good luck in your Vision for yourself and others I am sure it will be whatever you make it.

Pakmag has been a godsend since having kids, it has handy ideas of how to improve on all different aspects of parenting, fun activities to do locally and at home. So many fun printouts and especially the monkey dollar printout have been so popular in our household, the kids love using their dollars to buy from the special shop we have. I have been a lucky winner of 2 giveaway over the years and also attended the easter celebrations a few times. Bree has done such a fantastic job of keeping community spirit alive.

Thank you pakmag for the wonderful events you have put on for the community. I have taken my kids to every event you have put on and every time its fun, we have laughs and the big kids have just as much fun as the little ones. Thank you for the wonderful prizes my little one received. She will remember this for many years. She was so excited and couldn't wait to get home to enjoy them. Your events will be missed.

Hi Bree and the team. I always saw pakmags around town and remember picking up my first copy when I was pregnant with my first in 2017.
