A new online era: More for you every day of the week

WE'VE been telling the stories of the North Burnett for more than 60 years, bringing local news and information to your front door.

Today, we enter a new era.

One where we renew our commitment to bring you stories about people you know, to expose wrongdoing and hold decision makers accountable, to help grow your connection with your community, and to document our region's history.

The Central & North Burnett Times is changing so that we can keep you better informed every day of the week online.

But we need your support.

Today we have launched a premium online subscription model to the best local journalism, as well as state and national news. 

Your subscription will help to fund stories like the collapse of Goondicum Mine, it will help us mark the lives of those we've lost, like Mount Perry's Jack Gerdes, and it will keep you informed on crimes, traffic incidents and water security.

Without you, many of them would never be told.

We take our responsibility to you seriously.

From today, for the introductory price of just $3 a week, you will get access to all local news, state news and a national news feed.

You get to read everything happening in the North Burnett and surrounds, and the wider region including the South Burnett and Bundaberg, as well as the best in state and national news, business and sport from our sister title The Courier Mail, and much more.

You will still have free online access to vital information such as severe weather warnings, road closures, missing person reports and other issues where public safety may be at risk. Classifieds and real estate listings online will also be free to access.

A small number of readers have noticed over the past few months that some of our stories have been behind a paywall at our nearby sister papers while we've trialled the technology. So if you are already a subscriber including at the South Burnett Times or Bundaberg's News-Mail, you simply need to log in to www.centralnorthburnetttimes.com.au and you're away.

While regional print readership has remained steady over the last four years, digital audiences have grown significantly, doubling in fact, to 1.6million per month.

We've had boots on the ground in the North Burnett for more than 60 years, bringing you news and information. Who else does that in our region? We look forward to your support.

This does not affect your print product, which will continue to come out on Thursday and the cover price remains the same.

As part of our evolving change, we now have a morning newsletter, where the most up-to-date news is delivered to your inbox in the morning. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.
