What you can buy for $1 today
WE think paying a $1 a day for your local news is pretty good value.
Just think, if you reached into your pocket and pulled out a gold coin you could be getting unlimited digital access to The Northern Star, The Daily Telegraph, plus The Northern Star newspaper delivered to your door six days a week.
That provides unprecedented access to the latest news, sport, business, entertainment, event and council coverage.
No one is going to cover The Northern Rivers like we do with a team of dedicated reporters and photographers bringing the news as it happens.
We are the largest newsroom north of Newcastle and have been a vital link in the region for the past 141 years.
That's why we think the journalism we bring you is worth paying for.
After all, what else can you buy for a $1 these days?
