Like many media (and some other) organisations across Australia, our Dimboola Courier Facebook page has been taken offline as part of Facebook’s broader Australian news restrictions enacted earlier today.

We are disappointed with this action as we appreciate the value of an open media industry and the incredible convenience and importance of being able to access news on social media as it happens. The last year has well and truly proven this, with up–to-the-minute updates available on rapidly changing situations.

In the meantime, we will continue to publish content as usual on our website at We encourage you to check our website regularly to keep up with our latest stories.

For those who use Twitter, we will be stepping up our posting on our Twitter account, @DimboolaCourier. We encourage you to follow us there.

It also remains important that you have more than one source of emergency information. The VicEmergency website and mobile app are useful to ensure that, in the event of an emergency, you can remain informed.

Now, more than ever, we also ask you to remember the importance of small businesses in our community and further afield.

Thank you for your support.

The Dimboola Courier team
