About us

A progressive new voice in Sydney’s media landscape, the Sydney Sentinel offers a different take on Sydney. Arts, features, news and opinion sections are joined by dedicated queer, vegan and youth sections, in an online publication for the 2020s.

The Sentinel was founded in September 2020 by Sydney journalist Peter Hackney, who is its editor-in-chief.

Prior to founding the Sentinel, Peter was previously editor of the Sydney Star Observer and Sydney City News, as well as QNews and Queensland Pride in Brisbane.

His writing has appeared in a wide range of publications including titles by Fairfax, News Corp Australia, APN News & Media, Pacific Magazines, Australian Community Media and the Alternative Media Group of Australia.

The Sentinel is published by Sentinel Media, registered with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) on 10 September, 2020.
