South Burnett Online will be taking a short break between Monday, December 23, and Sunday, January 19.

We will return to normal updating on January 20.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers and advertisers a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

While we’re away we’ll continue to broadcast some subjects (such as our live TV program schedules, weather reports, the Kingaroy Cinema’s weekly movie guide, and public notices from the South Burnett Regional Council).

We will also be posting occasional news updates if important stories break.

Our normal phone and email contacts will be open throughout the break should you need to get in touch with us.

And, naturally, should a major news story break, we will be back at our desks immediately.

We would also like to thank you, our loyal readers, for another remarkable year of growth – our seventh year as the South Burnett’s only locally owned, locally run daily newspaper.

During the last year our website received slightly more than 3.1 million unique visits; we broadcast in excess of 13 million pages; and our servers chewed up 611 gigabytes of bandwidth to do this.

Since April 2012 we have published 17,855 articles, 4331 comments (the 21st century version of Letters To The Editor) and 38,494 images, nearly all of them about the South Burnett or about issues that could directly impact the people who live here.

Every week an average 60,000 people now visit us to find out about local news and – thanks to our advertisers – are able to do it for free.

So after a brief break, we’ll be back in 2020 to do it all over again.

And hopefully, even better.
