ASF Melbourne commenced publishing 'Sparks' in May 1986. The Public Transport Workers Association which was admitted to the ASF at 1st ASF Congress held in Melbourne in January 1987, took over responsibility for publishing 'Sparks' until they dissolved in January 1991. After that there was one more issue published by ASF Melbourne in 1991. There was a 'Sparks' column in the paper "Burning Issue' also published by ASF Melbourne until 1993.

Not to be confused with NSW version.
