Editorial: Clear as a muddled government

Good news! Local police will not be actively enforcing the government’s Public Health (COVID-19 General) Order 2021 when it comes to business activity – see NSW govt’s Health Order lacks clarity.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the famous Yirrkala bark petitions that changed the way Australia related to its first peoples.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Looking forward to seeing my adopted family group from Galiwinku (Elcho Island). My daughter Roha Dhamarrandji (Becky Turner) and I are getting very excited here in Byron Bay. Blessings to our Yuppas and Wowas (Brothers and Sisters) for coming to entertain us.
    We may be Ballanders (white people) on the outside but we have had Yolngu hearts since 1995.
