The Wombat Post is a community news publication for the Daylesford and Hepburn Springs region.

The purpose of the Wombat Post is to

  • inform the community of news and events that contribute to community building community and community well-being,
  • promote a positive image of the local community,
  • contribute to the historical record, and
  • provide a medium for advertising services and trades offered to the community.

The Daylesford District Community News Association Inc. (DDNA) is responsible for The Wombat Post.

The Board of the DDCNA oversees the operation and direction for The Wombat Post. Members of the Board are

President:                    Hal Swerissen
Vice-President:           Mark Rak
Secretary:                    Celia Waldron
Treasurer:                    Kate Redwood
Members:                    Tim Bach
Brett Millott

During initial operations of the Wombat Post, the Members of the Board are also acting as the Editorial Team. We anticipate that as the community reopens after COVID-19 restrictions, we will recruit a separate Editorial Team to manage editorial operations of the Wombat Post.

Unless authorship is otherwise attributed, the Editorial Team takes collective responsibility for all items published in the Wombat Post.
