AFTER Fairfax purchased the Northern Leader newspaper last year, Wollongong’s only hard copy northern suburbs newspaper, based in Corrimal, was closed.
When Fairfax purchased the Kiama Independent, Lake Times and Northern Leader, the decision was made to close the northern suburbs weekly.
The rapid development of online publishing, however, has allowed news to be delivered to the northern Illawarra in a much more efficient manner. Welcome to The Bulli Times – named in honour of the northern Illawarra’s first newspaper, established in the 1880s and ironically swallowed up by the Fairfax owned Illawarra Mercury in the 1940s.
At this stage The Bulli Times will cover news, opinion, and information from Illawarra’s northern townships from Corrimal to Waterfall. We look forward to your support, contributions and readership.
