Founded in 1889, the monthly Zealandia aimed to publish primarily New Zealand content. This is reinforced by the iconography on the cover; the moa and Māori chief overtly locate the magazine in New Zealand. The table of contents underscores the generalist approach, with contributions on the nature of the state, the burning of Kororāreka and a New Zealand serial, as well as a review section.
