The Warialda Watchman, 12 January 1899


Numerous newspapers were published in New South Wales during the nineteenth century. A wide range of public information sources, including newspapers, were produced to influence regional consciousness through the agenda of issues that they reported. A survey of New England newspapers, the region that includes Warialda, shows a geographical bias in news reporting.[3]


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