The Independent Weekly, established in September 2004, was an independent newspaper published and circulated in Adelaide, capital of South Australia. The newspaper was released weekly on Saturdays.

The Independent Weekly featured articles of critical and intellectual substance, especially with regard to local issues, and was a champion of the arts in Adelaide. Its international coverage was sourced largely from The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and The Independent in London.

The newspaper launched an online subscriber daily news service called InDaily on the anniversary of its first year in operation.

In March 2006, The Independent Weekly switched to a tabloid format and moved its release from Sunday to Saturday. Publisher Paul Hamra took on the reins as acting editor, changing the structure of the organisation from utilising a full staff of reporters to using contributors and articles sourced from Fairfax, AFP and The Independent.

The Independent Weekly ceased physical publication in November 2010, and was replaced by InDaily.[1]
