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. Barry & Tony are great surfing Buddies, They go surfing (board riding I suppose) almost daily on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, I suppose Abbot would call him a man of honour. Well It would appear that there wasn’t anything left to do (wine, notes,phone calls) doesn’t take much to figure………………..

  2. Why would you vote either for the red ties or the blue ties? Neither can be trusted. We’ve had Sir Lunchalot (Labo{U}r) then Obede then,… then…, then,… now O’Foundout (LNP)!! Is Cat Hodgepot (LNP) next? Give the Greens or Palmer United or the Sex Party a go in March 2015 – you can’t do any worse!! See more accusations about jobs for the boys and girls on http://www.llsclassaction.com!

  3. He’s either lied or, if he truly is “a man of honour”, he’s suffering from the start of a debilitating brain illness and deserves our empathy. Either way he shouldn’t be Premier.
