The Walcha News, originally published as The Walcha News and Southern New England Advocate, is an English language newspaper published in Walcha, New South Wales.


Witness was the first newspaper published in Walcha in 1889 founded by Mr. F. Townshend.[1] The Walcha News and Southern New England Advocate was published from 1904-1932 in opposition to the Witness which it then absorbed in 1928.[2] It became The Walcha News[3] in 1932 and is still published today. Erle Lewis ("Blue") Hogan managed and edited The Walcha News from 1950-1977.[2]


The paper has been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program of the National Library of Australia.[4]
