The Bendigo Advertiser (commonly referred to as The Addy) is the daily (Monday–Saturday) newspaper for Bendigo and is published by Fairfax Media.

First published in 1853, the Bendigo Advertiser has undergone many changes since its inception, including a move to tabloid form and a change in name from The Bendigo Advertiser to just The Advertiser. As of 3 April 2010, the paper is once again known as the Bendigo Advertiser.

Currently, the Bendigo Advertiser employs about seventy four staff, across all functions.

Sections in The Bendigo Advertiser:

  • Monday: Schools in Profile
  • Tuesday: Loop (youth issues: written, designed and edited entirely by young people. Produced in partnership with Lead On) and Focus on Education
  • Wednesday: Uni News (University news from La Trobe University's Bendigo Campus) and Country.
  • Thursday: View (Arts), Kooka (Kids) and Community Focus.
  • Friday: TV Guide and Footy Focus.
  • Saturday: Domain, Weekender, Country Cars and (the local job classifieds).

The printing of the paper is now done in Ballarat, along with The Courier, The Wimmera Mail Times and other Fairfax Media publications.

The Bendigo Advertiser's discontinued sister paper, the Bendigo Miner, was delivered free to most homes in Bendigo on Thursdays and was "old news" oriented.

The Bendigo Advertiser's parent company, Rural Press Limited, was taken over by Fairfax Media in 2007.
