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. Morrison’s commitment to FossilFuel4Ever – “This is coal. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be sacred. It won’t hurt you. Its coal” and “Gas chose itself” and at COP26 Australia’s stall turned into the international marketing department for Santos. How Good is Fossil Fuel!

  2. Don’t be a pontificating hypocrite Joachim
    so you completely have eliminated coal
    from your life ? get real here .. no different to these elites who turned up in Glasgow
    in Private planes, stayed in 5 star Hotels
    to preach to the world the need to do better
    for the environment.. majority have waterfront properties live the life of luxury
    and have the hide to lecture the world..
    Sip on another cocktail or latte hypocrites!!”
    Can’t believe it..

  3. Barrow my man, you back again. A stock standard response of your usual bluster and BS ignoring the issue at hand and instead throw up a desperate diversion / distraction to get off topic.

  4. I recall a ‘bull’ named Chain-saw years’ back that no-one could ride. The truth is
    in the telling. Think on it, Barrow.
