Abstract A 'country-minded' ideology began to develop in the mid-19th century in New South Wales as newspapers gave the scattered settlements a coherent political voice. This voice, initially used on behalf of individual towns, was later used in cooperative opposition to the perceived evils of Sydney and a government dominated by capital-city interests. Country newspapers played a significant role in the campaign for a new state in northern NSW and, more significantly, in the emergence of a political party to represent country interests. This paper charts the evolution of country-mindedness and the part that coutnry newspapers played in giving their communities an articluate political voice.
