Lismore Lantern Parade – Vale John Lush

Once again the community of Lismore came together to celebrate with the Lantern Parade on June 25.

Echonetdaily is celebrating its second birthday by bringing you an all-new-look format, starting today.

Just some of the new features you can expect are a more interactive website, with stories updating throughout the day, greater ease in finding stories and linking from story to story.

There will be a wider range of interactive elements such as photo galleries (a great example is today’s Aussies Against Fracking gallery), and the site looks just as good on your smart phone as it does on your computer screen.

The new format is the result of months of research on what our readers and advertisers like about Echonetdaily and what they would like to see improved.
