HistoryEdit

The Australian was first published on 18 April 1907 by The Colortype Press, printers and publishers in Hay Street, for the proprietors A.H. O'Connor and H. Hornby of the Western Australian branch of the Australian Natives' Association.[2] The newspaper served to support the ANA's nationalistic aims including the advancement of the Commonwealth, protectionism,[3][4] compulsory military training, the development of a strong home naval program, and the maintenance of the White Australia policy.[5][6]

The Australian encouraged the consumption of Australian products and contained articles on manufacturing, politics, literature reviews, artistic submissions as well as ANA events including meetings and conference proceedings.[7]
