The Land first appeared in 1911 as a two penny broadsheet. It was originally published by the Farmers and Settlers' Association of New South Wales[1] and later Rural Press, which merged with Fairfax Media.[2]

In 1930 Harry J. Stephens took up the post of editor; from 1906 to 1920 he had been the driving force behind the paper's chief opposition, The Farmer and Settler.[3]


The paper has been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program project of the National Library of Australia.[4][5]
