The Sunraysia Daily is a daily newspaper in the north-western Sunraysia region of Victoria, Australia. From its first publication in 1920 until 14 September 2007, it was published in broadsheet format, changing to tabloid-size the following day.

History

The newspaper was formed by the amalgamation of three newspapers, the Mildura Cultivator (established 19 May 1888), the Mildura Telegraph and Darling and Lower Murray Advocate (established 9 May 1913) and the Merbein Irrigationist, (established 5 November 1919). The first edition was produced on 2 October 1920.

It was one of Australia's last remaining regional broadsheets.

Australian entertainer John-Michael Howson was employed at the Sunraysia Daily as a cadet reporter early in his career.

Editor Lyall Corless led the format change from broadsheet to tabloid. Lyall is a former cadet at the Sunraysia Daily and returned to his Mildura roots in 2007 with extensive experience overseas and in leadership roles on some of Australia's biggest metropolitan mastheads.

Kieran Iles, formerly of the Mount Gambier Border Watch became editor in January 2009. The newspaper operates out of premises in Deakin Avenue in Mildura where there are more than 80 staff working to put the newspaper together.
