THE Morning Bulletin is about to move a few blocks from its old Quay Street building to new premises at 35 Fitzroy St, opposite Target.

The last day at our current site is next Friday, March 21, before we carry our stuff down the road to be open for business in Fitzroy St on Monday, March 24.

Our postal address remains the same (see fact box) as do all our phone numbers.

Capricornia Newspapers is moving

New address: Level 1, 35 Fitzroy Street (corner Fitzroy & Bolsover, across from City Centre Plaza).

PO Box: Remains the same: PO Box 397 Rockhampton Q 4700

Date in new office: Monday, March 24, 2014.

Phill Le Petit, General Manager of Capricornia Newspapers (publisher of The Morning Bulletin) said the business had simply evolved to the stage where more modern premises were required.

He said the historic three-storey Quay Street site was on the market and represented an investment opportunity with its prime riverfront position in the CBD.

The Quay St building has been the home of the paper since it was constructed in 1926.

This will be the Bulletin's fifth move since it was first published in 1861.

Here are some of The Bulletin readers memories shared on Facebook recently.
