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. The pet show was a great day for all. All the kids & their pets were so excited.
    Well done to all the organisers involved.

  2. What a happy story and fun day! Congratulations to the organisers, Brunswick Heaads Progress Association, the winning pets and their owners.

    Hopefully there will be many more Pet Shows, capturing residents enjoying what simple pleasures this special location offers.

    Fund-raising by BHPA, and on-going resident support, are needed to ensure the community can offer a safe, accessible place for all residents and visitors – a place that keeps holiday-makers returning to enjoy the natural beauty and friendliness.

    BHPA is to be praised for its commitment towards ensuring Bruns does not become an over-developed tourist drop-in spot, but a vibrant community where residents’ opinions are acknowledged and considered.
