Sydney Newspapers

The largest daily Sydney newspapers are: The Sydney Morning Herald and The Daily Telegraph. There are many other community papers and ethnic publications in Sydney.

In addition, every week day, commuters travelling back from the CBD (Central Business District) can get the free mX paper, which is distributed around the City Circle rail line, or available at some news stands in the City.

The free mX is an excellent idea to help ease the trips back home and bring the latest information, celebrity watch, a bit of gossip, comments from travellers, fashion and travel articles at the right time when people have to be in the train or bus and there is not much to do apart from reading or listening to music.

  • Sydney Central Courier,
  • Manly Daily,

  • Hills Shire Times and Hills News,
  • Inner West Courier,
  • Liverpool Leader,
  • Blacktown Advocate and Blacktown Sun
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Express,
