Time to mark end of an era

THE Queensland Times has been evolving since the day the first edition was printed in 1859.

A common thread links those years of constant progress. It can be found in the people whose stories the paper has been telling for more than 160 years.

The good news is that QT will go on telling people's stories and breaking the news stories that matter to this community. 

It will just be delivered in a different way.

As we look to progress to a digital future this month, we want to offer you arguably the best deal ever to get started on the future with us.

We're offering a Samsung Galaxy Tab A as a gift if you sign up for $7 per week for 12 months.

Alternatively, we're offering a two-month free trial.

We hope we can look forward to your support.

On the 27th of June we will print our final edition of the newspaper. It'll be a special one as we pause to mark the end of an era.

Throughout the final week we are taking a look back in time and seeking out readers' special memories.

Was your story told in the paper?

Perhaps it was someone else's story that made a lasting impression?

Or the appearance of your children's photos in the sports section? Or on the front page?

Were you among the tens of thousands whose milestones in life were recorded in our social and classified pages through the years?

We want to hear your memories of the Queensland Times and share them with our readers - in the paper and online.
