We seek out the best stories. We nurture them. Then we share them.

Hachette Australia is a team of expert publishers and passionate readers dedicated to discovering and supporting talented writers and working with them to craft exceptional stories. 

We select the very best, whatever the genre – from high-quality commercial fiction to literary award-winners, children’s picture books and adventure stories to memoirs and history, lifestyle and sport. And then we pour 100 years of publishing excellence into every page, bringing them to readers in the formats that they love.
