The Geraldton Guardian was established at Geraldton, Western Australia on 1 October 1906, as a triweekly newspaper serving the Victoria and Murchison Districts. It was launched on principles of liberal democracy, state rights, nationalism and British preference. [1]

On 1 January 1929 the Guardian amalgamated with the other Geraldton newspaper, the Geraldton Express (established in 1878), and was published as the Geraldton Guardian and Express, an evening daily. [2] [3]

On 1 January 1948 it changed its name back to the Geraldton Guardian.[4]
