The Bendigo Advertiser (commonly referred to as The Addy) is the daily (Monday–Saturday) newspaper for Bendigo, Victoria and its surrounding region. The Bendigo Advertiser is published by Fairfax Media with a circulation area of over 140,000 residents.

First published in 1853, the Bendigo Advertiser has undergone many changes since its inception, including a move to tabloid form and a change in name from The Bendigo Advertiser to just The Advertiser. As of 3 April 2010, the paper is once again known as the Bendigo Advertiser.

The Bendigo Advertiser currently delivers news as a printed newspaper, digital paper, and on its webpage The Bendigo Advertiser also shares news via its social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram.

Currently, The Bendigo Advertiser employs about forty-five staff in Bendigo, however like all Fairfax publications some of the tasks are shared with staff across other locations.

The printing of the paper is now done in Wendouree, along with The Courier, The Wimmera Mail-Times, The Age and other Fairfax Media publications.

The Bendigo Advertiser's discontinued sister paper, the Bendigo Miner, was delivered free to most homes in Bendigo on Thursdays and was "old news" oriented.

The Bendigo Advertiser's parent company, Rural Press Limited, was taken over by Fairfax Media in 2007.
