New Zealand Gazette

The New Zealand Gazette (Māori: Te Kāhiti o Aotearoa), commonly referred to as just the Gazette, is the official newspaper of the Government of New Zealand. It is published every Thursday, and a Customs Edition is published each Tuesday. It has been produced weekly, except over the Christmas/New Year period, since 1841. Special editions are published twice a year to cover the New Year Honours and Queen's Birthday Honours.[1]

The first issue was published as Gazette Extraordinary in 30 December 1840. Then it was the New Zealand Government Gazette from 1841 to 1847. Between 1847 and 1853 it was split into the New Zealand Government Gazette, Province of New Ulster for New Ulster (the North Island), published in Auckland, and the New Zealand Government Gazette, Province of New Munster for New Munster (the South Island), published in Wellington. In 1853 the two were reunited as the New Zealand Government Gazette and it changed to its present title on 11 August 1857.[2]
