About Dot Com Dot Au

In response to the unfortunate recent demise of ’s only source of , The Arafura Times, a small but enthusiastic band of local residents have combined to offer an alternative source for our community , views, articles, events, advertisements and other assorted items of interest.

It is important to not only inform and promote our region, particularly during this period of transition, but also to leave a record of local life for future generations.

gove-online-breakfastWhether you call it an electronic newspaper, an e-mag or newsletter, Gove Online is a free online news resource dedicated to our amazing region.

What’s different about an electronic version? Quite simply, cost. We don’t have to pay for premises to house large and expensive printing equipment, paper or ink. There are no reporters or editors on the payroll and no delivery costs. Residing in cyberspace and freely accessible the world over, 24/7/365, our modest electronic newspaper is the logical step from traditional paper.

Our proposed range of content includes familiar sections covering local news, the business sector, , clubs & associations, jobs, events and classified ads. We also propose a dedicated junior section to serve as a much-needed platform for the younger generation to voice their opinions and showcase their achievements.

We would be extremely interested to hear your views. What would you like to see?

We also encourage you, your business, club or organisation, your family and friends, to contribute news, views, articles, events and anything else you think might be useful.  Simply email your content hello@goveonline.com.au

All the best

The Editor
