The Queenslander was the weekly summary and literary edition of the Brisbane Courier, the leading journal in the colony—and later, federal state—of Queensland since the 1850s. It was launched by the Brisbane Newspaper Company in 1866, and discontinued in 1939.

The Queenslander front covers in the late 1920s
In a country the size of Australia, a daily newspaper of some prominence could only reach the bush and outlying districts if it also published a weekly edition. Yet The Queenslander, under the managing editorship of Gresley Lukin—managing editor from November 1873 until December 1880—also came to find additional use as a literary magazine.
The Queenslander was first published on 3 February 1866 in Brisbane by Thomas Blacket Stephens. The last edition was printed on 22 February 1939.
Here below is a set of illustrated photos from State Library of Queensland that shows The Queenslander front covers in the late 1920s.
