Tasmanian Times - pure Tasmaniana with all the verve and splendour of the roaring 40s! No ‘free trial’ teasers as subscription bait or stories that disappear behind a paywall not long after they have been published. In the interests of informing public debate, Tasmanian Times content has always been free and always will be.
Running a website and associated activities is not without costs. There’s everything from computers and related equipment, web hosting (our archive is 60,000 pages!), design updates to keep pace with latest tech and security issues, training of volunteers, telephone, accountancy costs, travel and numerous other minor items. It all adds up.
You can support Tasmanian Times in the following ways:
read and share - our writers and contributors love that!
click on ads - yeah, we know :-/ You won't have had so much fun since you cleaned the oven.
speak up - comments are available on some articles, and on general topics in the Forums.
contribute material - see the guidelines on the Contact page about how to submit an article, feature, photo, video or letter to the Editor. Join the hundreds of authors and creators who have their work on TT for all the world to enjoy.
