Quite a number of newspapers in New South Wales and Australia have articles that mention the Festiniog Railway.

Quite a number of towns and places in Australia are named for places in Wales and the United Kingdom.

The significance of the citation of a newspaper depends on its circulation, which in turns depends on the population of the area where it covers, and any newspaper competition.

Table[edit source]

Rather than have an individual article for each paper, there is a combined table for all papers. The Years column show dates of first and last issue of paper, noted that the NLA has only scanned up to about 1955.
