Simply Australia has been online now since October 2001. We have been through a number of improvements over the years and our readership has steadily grown.
This year we have decided to dramatically change our design to allow visitors to join and comment on our articles. It’s more interractive, giving you the opportunity to comment on individual items on the site and to contribute your own thoughts and ideas on each subject.
With the addition of our Facebook page we hope even more readers can enjoy the music and articles etc. Please send us your contributions for possible inclusion here and don’t forget to visit us on Facebook !
