The Nepean Times was a weekly newspaper first published in the Australian city of Penrith on March 3, 1882.[1]

The Nepean Times (NT) was a weekly newspaper published by the Colless family in Penrith, New South Wales, Australia. Founded in 1882, the Nepean Times, was the only local newspaper for most of its 80 years in publication. The newspaper was published every Saturday until 13 August 1936 when it changed to a Thursday publication day.

Up until the establishment of a locally produced newspaper in the Penrith district, Sydney and Parramatta newspapers, such as the Evening News, Cumberland Mercury and Sydney Morning Herald circulated in the local area and carried local news reports.

The Nepean Times was circulated from Rooty Hill (Blacktown) to Springwood (Blue Mountains), Castlereagh to Bringelly.

The first newspaper published in Penrith was the short-lived Penrith Argus which commenced in 1881. Newspaper proprietor, William Webb[disambiguation needed], who was born in the district, had by the 1880s established a number of country papers. He set up his apprentice, a young William Shannon Walker as editor.

When the Nepean Times ceased publication after eighty years on 29 November 1962, it was not without a great deal of recognition of its lasting importance. It was the only newspaper owned, printed & published in Penrith at the time.
