The Maitland Mercury is Australia's third oldest regional newspaper. It was originally a weekly newspaper, with the first issue published on 7 January 1843. The older regional papers are the "Geelong Advertiser" (estab. 21 November 1840) and the "Launceston Examiner" (12 March 1842).The Mercury is still in circulation serving the city of Maitland and the surrounding Lower Hunter Valley. It has been a daily since 1894.
