Its predecessor the broadsheet Sunday Herald was published in the years 1949–1953.[5] In 1953, what was then Fairfax Media bought The Sun, an afternoon paper, and merged its Sunday edition with the Sunday Herald to become the tabloid Sun-Herald.[6]

The Brisbane edition of the Sun-Herald has content from the Brisbane Times.
