History[edit]

Offices of the Border Post and Stannum Miner near the corner of Maryland and Folkstone Street, Stanthorpe, 1872
Printing works of the Border Post Stannum Miner newspaper, 1872

The newspaper Border Post and Stannum Miner was first published on 20 July 1872 in Stanthorpe on foolscap paper. Later it was published on broadsheet. In 1971 the title was simplified to "Border Post" and the newspaper printed as a tabloid.[1][2]

The title Stannum Miner was then adopted by the Stanthorpe and District Historical Society as the name for their journal (formerly known as the Bulletin).[3]

In 1994, Australian Provincial Newspapers acquired a controlling interest in the Border Post.[2]
