The Echo Newspaper was founded on the 5th August 1985. It was produced in response to the needs of local business people who believed that the Community Newspaper was not representative of a local newspaper.
The Echo is a more reader friendly newspaper which is consistent in terms of layout and features and has become the preferred advertising medium for local businesses. With a circulation that covers the City of Swan and shires of Mundaring and Kalamunda, the Echo reaches a mix of suburban and country areas. This includes both city commerce and agriculture throughout the Swan Valley. Source
