Abstract: Few non-English newspapers in Australia can be more "invisible '' to the wider community, prima facie, than the Maltese ones. Although mainly if not exclusively in the Maltese language, these almost invariably have had English or English-sounding titles. Currently the two main publication, both weeklies, and both published in Sydney's western suburb. - are The Maltese Herald, started in 1961, and The Malta Cross, in 1985. Two monthly publications are The Times of Malta, published in Melbourne, and Malta , a political review, started in Sydney in 1982. Another paper, which has included a literary supplement, and was published intermittently since 1956, is The Voice of Malta (ll-Lehen ta' Malta). Other publications appeared from time to time but were short-lived. Historically, the most important of these is The Malta News. Namely in English, it was published, in the 1940s, in Melbourne.
