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. I always drove “Yank tanks” There was never a bump in the road under a yank tank. They went for ever without any trouble and in a crash the other car crumpled.
    My last car was a 76 Fairlane Marque. When I moved into a Retirement Village it was too big for the carport, I exchanged it, with a grandson for a new TV, as it would not fit into the carport attached to my unit and I was then almost past driving.

  2. There is nothing like the heavy, brutish K-thunk, K-thunk, K-thunk of an idling V8 as it slurps up the juice. We are at the lights and the engine is ticking over. K-thunk, K-thunk, K-thunk. ‘Mine is better than Yours” “Oh yeah!”
    So first gear. Clutch. Get off you ass, grab some V8 juice out of the fridge put you best rock and roll clobber on and your blue suede shoes, grab some Elvis vinyl because your idol Elvis has been idle. He has left the building. Come on down to the ROAR of a Caddie. Put the pedal is to the mettle of the 6-litre V8 and just drink in the fumes.
    This ain’t the Blues Brothers. Go now right down to Bruns and turn up that wick.
