The Guyra Argus is an English-language newspaper published weekly in Guyra, New South Wales.[1]

History[edit]

The Guyra Argus was first published in 1902 by Albert Michael Roche and was published under this title until 1957.[2] The newspaper reappeared under various other names, including the Guyra Guardian from 1959 to 1983,[3] when it was bought by Rural Press Ltd and incorporated into the Tablelands Times. A local community newspaper, called the Guyra Shire Chronicle, followed from 1983 to 1988.[4][5] After this closed, a series of community meetings were held to determine the future of the newspaper and Geoffrey and Margaret Hovey, who had previously owned The Tenterfield Star were asked to launch a newspaper; they began publishing the Guyra Weekly News in 1989 and it remained in publication until 1992.[6][5] Publication recommenced under the Guyra Argus masthead in 1993.[7]

Digitisation[edit]

The earlier edition of the Argus has been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program project of the National Library of Australia.[8][9]
