FEBRUARY 2012 marked the launch of the online publication, The Bulli Times.
The blog style news, information and opinion site is a not-for-profit initiative, which I hope will gain the support of writers, reporters and readers living and working in the stretch of coast line from Wollongong north to the Royal National Park.
With almost 25 years of experience as a newspaper journalist, I will be looking at bringing The Bulli Times’ readers a fair, interesting and unbiased look at news and information in the northern districts of the Illawarra.
The Bulli Times welcomes contributions from community and sporting groups for inclusion. The Times also is looking for voluntary correspondents to contribute news and information from suburbs and villages of Wollongong’s north.
If you have a story, media release or news or images for inclusion in The Bulli Times email firstname.lastname@example.org.
