Bangalow’s Heartbeat is a not for profit grassroots, community focused magazine available in print and online fueled by volunteer contributors, photographers and distributors.

We continue to honor our founding editor Colin Cook, who printed the early newsletters on green copy paper by replicating the same green background on our Community Calendar.

Our aim as  is to unite and strengthen the 2479 postal area by providing platforms for issues concerning the community to be raised. We hope by incorporating social media the conversation can keep going. By providing the opportunity for the community to voice opinions and concerns our aim is to facilitate a cohesive community and address the development of 2479 and the environmental and social issues effecting the area. We encourage community article contributions and involvement.

We are 2479 inclusive our banner which incorporates the fig tree roots as a symbol that is familiar to the entire community and unites us. Like the fig that stays rooted to its heritage, it also grows towards the future and adapts in the present.

We are an age inclusive, community magazine with a positive persona we ask that when engaging on our media platforms that all communications be respectful despite possible variants of opinions. Any posts or contributions that are disrespectful will be removed and the responsible party blocked from further engagement.

As a not for profit magazine we are appreciative of all our advertisers who assist to cover costs of production and distribution.
