Will Tweed Council remove final option for RLSC in Tweed Shire?

At its upcoming Council meeting, the Tweed Shire Council is seeking to remove the option of Rural Land Sharing Communities, which includes multiple occupancies and community title.

This is an open letter to the people who think it’s somehow ok to disturb every living creature within a five-kilometre radius with their repetitive bass and drum frequencies which apparently passes for music.

Where do you people get off? If you don’t give a shit about others, spare a thought for the animals and birds. (Don’t get me started about koalas and Splendour/Bluesfest.)

Once again we have a techno/doof/trance (whatever it’s called this week) going on in the nature reserve on the north side of the Brunswick River and it’s now midnight and I can’t fricking sleep because of the pounding bass sounds coming through the bush.

As they say ‘get a room’ and keep it to yourself or better still enjoy the sounds of nature.

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. Grrrrrr…….they are my pet hate at the moment Rod Murray!
    Not only do they disturb our wildlife but also damage and destroy the environment too.
    Doof parties are always trashing our beaches and fragile dunes, public toilet/shower areas, broken bottles, fires left burning….I could go on and on.

  2. The doofs in the National Parks are a disgrace , the amount of garbage left behind shows no respect to not only others but also themselves.
    Shitting in the woods is also another sign of disrespect.
    Doof with harmony and they may get some respect.

Interview with Ross Wilson, composer and Daddy Cool frontman

When the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Michael Gudinski and Sir Elton John call out a song as ‘one of the great Australian rock ‘n’ roll songs’, ‘one of the greatest songs of all time’, and ‘one of my favourite tracks’, then you know it was and still is, a hit.
