The Sun-Herald is an Australian newspaper published in tabloid or compact format on Sundays in Sydney by Fairfax Media. It is the Sunday counterpart of The Sydney Morning Herald. In the 6 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 The Sunday Sun was merged with the Sunday Herald to become the tabloid Sun-Herald.[5]
