The Sun-Herald is an Australian newspaper published in tabloid or compact format on Sundays in Sydney by Nine Entertainment. It is the Sunday counterpart of the Sydney Morning Herald. In the six months to September 2005, The Sun-Herald had a circulation of 515,000. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, its circulation had dropped to 443,257 as of December 2009[1] and to 313,477 as of December 2010, from which its management inferred a readership of 868,000.[2] Readership continued to tumble to 264,434 by the end of 2013, and has half the circulation of rival The Sunday Telegraph.[3]

Its predecessor the broadsheet Sunday Herald was published in the years 1949–1953.[4] In 1953, Fairfax Media bought The Sun, an afternoon paper, and merged its Sunday edition with the Sunday Herald to become the tabloid Sun-Herald.[5][6]

The Brisbane edition of the Sun-Herald has content from the Brisbane Times.
