Echo turns 35 and You are invited!

This year The Echo turns 35, and to celebrate this momentous anniversary they are putting on The Echo Community Awards – and everyone is invited!

Leigh Rees, Brunswick Heads.

For far too long, Bruns residents have endured the lurid lighting and intrusive noise of the visiting carnival that consumes most of Banner Park. In fact, given they operate every night for seven weeks, can they be called visiting?

Many of us think it’s time to review their domination of the cultural landscape at a time when residents too would like to enjoy their town. And before you push the ‘tradition’ button, ask yourselves if you would like them outside your front door every night for seven  weeks!

Maybe they could come for the woodchop festival and return Banner Park at Christmas time to the residents and visiting families who enjoy the sounds of nature over tinsel music and flashing lighting.


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.
