The entity that became Australian Community Media (ACM) began its existence as The Land in 1911. In subsequent decades, The Land acquired various other community newspapers and the resulting media company was renamed Rural Press Limited in 1981.
On 6 December 2006 it was announced that Rural Press Limited and John Fairfax Holdings would merge to form a new company estimated in value at $12 billion. The merger with Fairfax was completed on 8 May 2007. Papers from Rural Press were published under the Fairfax Regional Media brand, which later became Australian Community Media. Fairfax Media merged with Nine Entertainment in 2018 and Nine sold ACM to Catalano and Thorney in 2019.
