It’s official. Thanks to all our readers, contributors and mentors for making us Murrindindi and the surrounding districts number one online news site by over 60,000 readers a month. 

Kinglake Ranges News (5am, 12 February) has achieved 1,189,032 ‘hits’ for 2019. This equates to an average of 237,806.4 ‘hits’ per week. 1189032 divided by 5 weeks (of 2019) or a daily average of 27,445 (AWStats).

We ourselves could not believe the stats so we checked them, and checked them again before getting an independent third-party to triple-check the stats were correct.
