The Herald had a 150-year history and The Sun News-Pictorial a 68-year history in Melbourne. HWT had bought The Sun News-Pictorial in 1925. The HWT also publishes The Weekly Times, aimed at farmers and rural business. The HWT bought a controlling stake in The Advertiser of Adelaide in 1929. From 1929 until 1987, HWT owned and operated Melbourne

The West Australian
in 1969, but sold it to Robert Holmes à Court in 1987 as part of the News Limited
