the original printing office of The Dimboola Banner

The Dimboola Banner has a publishing history of nearly 135 years. The first issue was published on 10 May 1879.[1] After successful years of publishing a takeover bid was made in 1921, the bid failed and an opposing newspaper, Dimboola Chronicle, went into publication.[2] The Banner remained robust and absorbed the Chronicle in 1930.

The Dimboola Printing Museum showcases printing machinery from a bygone era.
