Support quality local news

Donate today

The Western Eco is a free community news magazine in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane, covering Ashgrove, Bardon, Paddington, Red Hill, The Gap, St Johns Wood, Newmarket, and Keperra. Our magazine is independently owned and published by locals to support our community. We deliver our free publication monthly to homes, businesses, and key locations across the region.

To keep telling and sharing local community news and stories we need your help please to cover costs. Printing and distribution costs are expensive, and advertising income alone doesn’t cover these costs. With your support we can keep local news thriving – to continue sharing local news that matters to our community.  

We care about our community and work closely to support our local not-for-profit groups and businesses by volunteering our services and time – and we want to keep doing this. Thank you for your support!
