Yesterday will go down in history as the day Australia stood together and voted Yes to marriage equality and nation-wide the newspapers are marking the celebration with rainbow-coloured front pages.

The Daily Telegraph has copped some backlash on social media for its negative approach to its same-sex marriage front page, including bylines from controversial columnists and No voters Miranda Devine and Mark Latham.

Also getting a look in on the covers was the Socceroos win against Hondouras to qualify for the Russia 2018 soccer World Cup.

Below are the front pages from The Age, The Australian Financial Review, The Sydney Morning Herald and NT News just to name a few.

The results of the postal vote dominated the main news slot on all major news outlets, including ABC, SBS,, Guardian Pedestrian, Junkee, BuzzFeed and The news is likely to see an increase in traffic and sales for all major news organisations.
