From wikipedia

The Evelyn Observer was a weekly newspaper released from 1873 to 1942 in the north-east area of Melbourne, Australia. It was first published on 31 October in 1873 from an out of school house at Kangaroo Ground.[1] Andrew Ross, the district's first school master and hotel-keeper was the Observer’s first proprietor and he enlisted the help of a printer, John Rossiter who also became the first editor. [2] The earliest surviving issue is 15 October 1875, held at the State Library of Victoria.

The newspaper covered the subjects of agriculture and mining as well as horticulture in later years and was usually four pages in length and cost between two to three pence. Robert Charles Harris became the proprietor and editor from 1885 and continued in this role until his death in 1921, only four years after he relocated the newspaper to the new railway at Hurstbridge. While the newspaper continued under abridged titles of the Hurstbridge and then Eltham Advertiser, it was overtaken by other titles across the Diamond Valley and ceased publication in 1942.
