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. Oh this will be good as we will get some outback country questions like “Should Flouride be in the drinking water” or “Should we vaccinate our children?” or “Are Free Range eggs good for you?”
    Questions that are not asked in the city.

  2. Jimbo, II think you should get out more! Really people have the same issues basically, whether it’s city or country, like cost of living and the environment.

  3. I thought it was a joke! People who accuse the ABC for always picking its leftist audiences and panels will have a field day with this one. The entirety of Lismore is radical far left!
