The Bulletin was founded by two Sydney journalists, J.F. Archibald and John Haynes, and the first edition appeared on 31 January, 1880.

This mix of radicalism and xenophobia was immensely popular in the raw male-dominated frontier districts of late 19th century Australia, and The Bulletin soon became known as "the bushman's bible," with a circulation reaching 80,000 by 1900. Jules François Archibald, known as J F Archibald, ( 14 January 1856 – 10 September 1919 Sydney) Australian Henry Lawson (17 June 1867 – 2 September 1922 was an Australian writer and poet Political radicalism or simply radicalism is adherence to radical views and principles in Politics. Xenophobia is an intense and/or irrational dislike and sometimes fear of people from other countries Archibald's masterstroke was to open The Bulletin 's pages to contributions from its readers in 1886, running pages of poetry, short stories and cartoons contributed by miners, shearers and timber-workers from all over Australia. Some of this material was of high quality, and over the years many of Australia's leading literary lights had their start in The Bulletin 's pages. At the same time, The Bulletin ran well-informed political and business news.
The Bulletin 's literary editor, Alfred Stephens, was the main inspiration for the "Bulletin school. Alfred George Stephens (AG Stephens 28 August 1865 - 15 April 1933 was an Australian writer and literary critic notably for The Bulletin. " Among the better-known contributors were the writers Henry Lawson, Banjo Paterson, Bernard O'Dowd, Joseph Furphy, Miles Franklin and Vance and Nettie Palmer, the cartoonists Livingston Hopkins ("Hop"), Phil May, D H Souter and the illustrator and novelist Norman Lindsay. Henry Lawson (17 June 1867 – 2 September 1922 was an Australian writer and poet Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson (17 February 1864 – 5 February 1941 was a famous Australian Bush poet, journalist and author Bernard Patrick O'Dowd ( April 11, 1866 - September 1, 1953) was an Australian Activist, Educator, Poet Joseph Furphy ( 26 September 1843 – 13 September 1912) is widely regarded as the "Father of the Australian Novel Miles Franklin (born "Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin" 14 October 1879 – 19 September 1954) was an Australian writer Vance and Nettie Palmer were two of Australia 's best-known literary figures from the 1920s to the 1950s Livingston "Hop" Hopkins ( 7 July 1846 &ndash 21 August 1927) was an American Cartoonist who became a major Phil May ( 22 April 1864 – 5 August 1903) was an English Caricaturist. David Henry Souter (1862 – 1935 was an Australian artist and journalist Norman Alfred William Lindsay ( 22 February 1879 – 21 November 1969) was an Australian artist
Archibald retired in 1907, and thereafter The Bulletin became steadily more conservative, and by World War I had become openly Empire-loyalist. The British Empire was the largest empire in history and for over a century was the foremost global power. This marked its break with the political left and the end of its real influence, although it retained its place in Australian literary life well into the 1920s. In 1927, managing director William Macleod sold his stake in the magazine to Samuel Prior, long term financial editor, senior editor and, since buying Archibald's shares some years earlier, major shareholder. William Macleod ( 27 October 1850 – 24 June 1929) was an Australian artist and a partner in The Bulletin. Macleod had earlier invited Prior's third child, Henry, to manage the magazine. The Prior family owned and operated The Bulletin Newspaper company for the following decades, introducing new ventures such as the Wild Cat Monthly in 1923, the Australian Woman's Mirror in 1924, and, in a joint venture with Norman Lindsay designed to publish Australian writers, the Endeavour Press in 1932. Ultimately, however, the magazine gradually declined, losing circulation steadily. Its pre-war attitudes came to seem increasingly reactionary, and its cult of the bushman increasingly anachronistic in what was already an urbanised country. By the 1940s The Bulletin was regarded as a sad relic, filled with racist and antisemitic bile, and with political commentary so right-wing as to seem almost comic. Antisemitism (alternatively spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism; also rarely known as judeophobia) is the Prejudice against or hostility
In 1961 The Bulletin was sold to the press magnate Sir Frank Packer, who installed Donald Horne as editor. Sir Douglas Frank Hewson Packer, KBE ( 3 December 1906 &ndash 1 May 1974) was an Australian Media proprietor Professor Donald Horne (26 December 1921 – 8 September 2005 was an Australian Journalist, Writer, social critic and academic who became one of Australia's The paper was radically modernised, most of the old hands were sacked, and "Australia for the White Man" disappeared from the masthead. Under the Packer family The Bulletin remained politically conservative, but rejoined the political and journalistic mainstream, as a well-edited magazine (modelled on Time) of political and business news and commentary, with occasional forays into literature as a gesture to its great past. Time (trademarked in capitals as TIME) is a weekly American Newsmagazine, similar to Newsweek and
The Packer family tolerated the magazine's loss-making habits for the prestige of publishing Australia's oldest magazine. They published it "in conjunction with" Newsweek, which was usually found as a separate section within the magazine. Newsweek is an American weekly Newsmagazine published in New York City.
Online, The Bulletin (http://bulletin.ninemsn.com.au) existed in another form, publishing articles from the magazine as well as content exclusive to the web, photo galleries, an archive of past covers and a blogging site known at The Bullring (http://www.thebulletinblog.com.au/the_bullring.htm).
On January 24, 2008, ACP Magazines announced they had ceased publishing the magazine.
