Administrative history

The Hobart Town gazette was established on 25 June 1825 by Ross and Howe, the newly appointed Government Printers, as the authorised publisher of government notices, taking over that role from The Hobart Town gazette and Van Diemen's Land advertiser, published by Andrew Bent. It was published a day after Bent's paper and used the same volume and issue numbering. The 2 papers were published in this way for 7 weeks, until Aug. 19, 1825 when Bent changed the title of Hobart Town gazette and Van Diemen's Land advertiser to Colonial times and Tasmanian advertiser. The Hobart Town gazette continued to be published, changing title in 1881 to Hobart gazette.
