Byron Shire Echo

Byron Shire Echo

The Byron Shire Echo is a weekly independent tabloid newspaper which is published in the Byron Shire, New South Wales, Australia.

The Echo, as it is also known, was founded in 1986 as a result of marijuana raids by the NSW Police in the surrounding valleys. The paper claimed that the Police were acting aggressively and illegally. It was from this perceived social injustice that Nicholas Shand started the paper, and it continues to champion those causes today under publisher and co-founder David Lovejoy.

Over the last 20 years it has grown steadily from an A4 layout to the present day A3 tabloid, and currently prints 22300 copies weekly.

In August 2008, The Byron Shire Echo launched a sister paper in the Tweed Shire, called The Tweed Shire Echo.

Famous quotes containing the words echo and/or byron:

    The moralist and the revolutionary are constantly undermining one another. Marx exploded a hundred tons of dynamite beneath the moralist position, and we are still living in the echo of that tremendous crash. But already, somewhere or other, the sappers are at work and fresh dynamite is being tamped in place to blow Marx at the moon. Then Marx, or somebody like him, will come back with yet more dynamite, and so the process continues, to an end we cannot foresee.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    It was one of the deadliest and heaviest feelings of my life to feel that I was no longer a boy. From that moment I began to grow old in my own esteem—and in my esteem age is not estimable.
    —George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
