Microfilm Newspapers

Bundaberg Regional Libraries (Bundaberg branch) holds microfilm copies of some local newspapers.

  • The collection is not indexed (ie, cannot be searched by keyword. A date, or approximate date, is essential).
  • We do not have a complete archive of every issue of every local paper. Some dates, months, years, within our collection may be absent. Where known the dates that are missing have been noted here.
  • We have exactly the same copies as held by the State Library of Queensland and the National Library of Australia.
  • You must book at the front desk, or via the catalogue, to use the microfilm readers. Printing is available at cost.

Digitised newspapers:

  • Bundaberg News Mail online archive - recent editions may be available in one or more databases under the 'News' subject heading via the State Library of Queensland's eResources
  • Other Australian newspapers (historic) via Trove.
  • Currently, Bundaberg newspapers from approx. 1892 to approx. 1925 may be found on Trove.
