News Ticker


The New Bush Telegraph is a community initiative with a proud history — in print since 1987. It has been at the forefront of many community based campaigns to protect the natural environment of the Shoalhaven region which is our home.

The newspaper aims to educate and make its readers aware of different points of view, including those of individuals, small business and community organisations, who provide us with our editorial and advertising revenue.

We have an interest in a diverse range of topics including news, the arts, publicizing events and happenings, stories about local people and enterprises, self sufficiency, politics and the environment.

The newspaper stands for editorial independence. We seek to make a difference, helping to shape a tolerant and compassionate community.

Patrick Thompson is the current NBT editor. He is a publisher with a strong interest in environmental and social issues. Pat lives in Sussex Inlet with his daughter Charlotte.
