The Morning Bulletin is a daily newspaper service Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia and the surrounding areas of Central Queensland.


The Bulletin was established in July 1861. It is the second oldest business in Rockhampton, the oldest being the Criterion Hotel which was established in October 1860.

The original owner, William Hitchcock Buzacott, brought the press and equipment form Sydney in 1861 where he operated a small weekly paper. At the time the paper was called the Rockhampton Bulletin and was eagerly read by the town's 698 residents.

The Bulletin's original home was in Quay Street near the old Customs House, in a low wooden building. On 14 August 1862, this was burnt down and the presses destroyed. Buzacott quickly obtained new equipment from Sydney.


The newspaper is printed daily Monday to Saturday and contains local, entertainment and information news. It is the only daily paper that serves the Central Queensland region.

The Morning Bulletin is a part of the APN News & Media network which is one of Australia’s largest newspaper publishers. The Morning Bulletin employs over 100 people.
