Backroom Press is a micro-publisher located in Broome, a small Kimberley town in the north of Western Australia. It was set up to publish entertaining and educational books from the region.

Backroom Press was founded by three friends in 2006, and incorporated three years later as a Not-for-Profit Association.

We work to foster understanding between different cultural groups, support community educational projects and participate in public events such as festivals and workshops.

We aim to delight, entertain and enlighten through the publication of books that resonate with authentic Kimberley voices telling Kimberley stories.

Our online bookshop features a growing list of children’s and adults’ titles representing the diversity of the region. You are sure to find something for everyone.

If you wish to submit a manuscript for consideration, please refer to our guidelines.
