Ovens and Murray Advertiser

Ovens and Murray Advertiser (ISSN 2200-1344), also published as The Chiltern and Howlong times, Ovens register, and Beechworth and district news, is a weekly English language newspaper published in the town of Beechworth, Victoria, Australia.


Published in Beechworth, Victoria from 1855,[1] the paper was conceived by architect Francis Hodgson Nixon and auctioneer J.H Gray.

Ovens and Murray Advertiser was launched in Beechworth in 1855. In April 1918 the Ovens & Murray Advertiser absorbed the Ovens Register, which had previously been published as the Chiltern and Howling times and mining, commercial and agricultural directory (1886-1889) and the Chiltern and Howling times and Ovens register (1889-1918).[2]


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