The Queanbeyan Age is a weekly newspaper based in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Australia. It has had a number of title changes throughout its publication history. First published on 15 September 1860 by John Gale and his brother, Peter Francis Gale, The Golden Age, as it was known at the time, was the first newspaper of the small township on the banks of the Queanbeyan River. It was named due to the short-lived Kiandra goldrush, which generated large amounts of gold-based traffic through the region.
The Age currently publishes in 32 to 48 page editions on Fridays. Previously it published twice a week, and prior to that three times a week. Its weekly coverage includes politics, the courts, council, sport, community, health, environment, police and the emergency services.
The Age is part of the Federal Press Group with The Canberra Times and The Canberra Chronicle. Its website includes interactive timelines, videos, audio slideshows, photo galleries and interactive map features. It can also be found on Twitter and Facebook. Staff of the paper includes its editor Andrew Benson (as of May 2011[update]), two full-time journalists, one part-time journalist and an editor off site.
