HarperCollinsPublishers, part of News Corporation, is one of the largest and most successful publishing groups in the world.
HarperCollins Australia was founded in 1989 with the amalgamation of three publishing houses: Harper and Row (USA), William Collins (UK) and Angus & Robertson Publishers (Australia). This union of strong global publishers with Australia's oldest and foremost literary publisher resulted in a uniquely powerful company, with the literary heritage of Angus & Robertson augmented by the international reach of News Corporation.
Our goal is simple: to be Australia's best publisher.
HarperCollinsPublishers General Books provides a full range of services to book retailers and publishes extensively in all major sections of the book market.
