Leaders in Local - Zinc 96.1


Zinc 96 broadcasts primarily to Gympie, Noosa and the Cooloola Coast. Being a part of those communities is vital to their success and having a warm and enthusiastic listener base is what makes the station a leader in local.

The Zinc team prides itself on supporting locals and they have some real fun doing it.



Mary Valley Rattler Steam Train

The ongoing relationship with Zinc96 and the popular local steam train “The Mary Rattler” has seen many engagements such as when the Zinc family held a morning tea and train ride for listeners in August this year. Breakfast host Bilko is a massive fan of the attraction.


Gympie Lions Club

At Zinc96 Outside Broadcasts, this collaboration makes the events extraordinary as the volunteers from the Gympie Lions Club join forces with our Zinc promotional team to turn the snags on the barbie.


Goomeri Pumpkin Festival

The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival is an acclaimed yearly event where people travel to Goomeri from all over to get amongst the many events like the “Great Australian Pumpkin Roll”! Zinc96’s Bilko and Ali celebrated in style by painting Bilkos head like a pumpkin and rolling him down the hill!


Stroud Homes OB

Zinc96 has partnered with many businesses to enhance major milestones with Outside Broadcasts. The team attended the opening for the New Stroud Homes, Home design business and made local listeners aware of the growing business sector.
