How many newspapers are there in Australia?

In Australia, there are two national and ten state/territory daily newspapers, 35 regional dailies, and 470 additional regional and suburban publications. The Australian newspaper is the largest selling paper in Australia.

The Australian has been published since 1823, making it the second oldest living publication in the English language after The London Times. It has a total circulation of 3 million copies per day, making it the highest-selling newspaper in Australia. Its average page count is 740 words.

There are two other large daily newspapers in Australia: The Sydney Morning Herald and The Adelaide Advertiser. They have almost identical circulations (about 464,000) but different styles of journalism and ownership groups. The Herald is conservative with respect to politics while the Advertiser is liberal in its outlook.

There are seven major weekly newspapers in Australia: The Australian Women's Weekly, Australian Family Magazine, Australian Science News, Australian Homes and Living, Real Estate Wealth, and Investment. Their combined circulation is about 7 million copies per week.

Other significant newspapers include The Northern Star (Sydney), The West Australian (Perth), The Courier-Mail (Brisbane), The Age (Melbourne), The Tasmanian Examiner (Hobart), and The Advocate (Adelaide).

When was the first daily newspaper published in Australia?

National newspapers first appeared in the second half of the twentieth century. The Australian Financial Review began as a weekly in 1951 and has been published daily since 1963. The Australian debuted in July 1964. Australian newspapers have undergone several physical transformations throughout the years. Their current headquarters is located at 15 Symonds Street in the Melbourne central business district.

An earlier financial journal, the Australian Banker, was published from 1855 to 1863. This magazine was written by legal practitioners and had an economic focus. It is estimated that around 5000 copies were sold each week during its existence.

Australia's first provincial newspaper was published in New South Wales (now NSW) between 1824 and 1826. The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser reported on political events and public health issues of the day. It wasn't until 1828 that more general news began to be included in the paper. This new edition was called the Sydney Herald and it is from this publication that we get our term "Heraldism".

Other early publications include the Queenslander which was published in Queensland from 1876 to 1902. It was here that we first see evidence of gold being used in advertisements, with offers of cash for goods such as furniture and machinery.

New South Wales again leads the way with the introduction of another financial journal, this time a monthly called the New South Wales Colonial Advocate in 1827.
