HarperCollins Publishers, part of News Corporation, is one of the largest 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.

In 2009, HarperCollins Australia took on ABC Books, which continues as an imprint.
