Our mission is to bring unique and memorable stories to life, to nurture our writers, and to encourage others to walk the path of creativity.



Elephant House Press is an independent publishing business in South Australia.


We look for unique stories with unforgettable characters who stay in one’s heart long after the book has been closed. 

Our dream is to help other writers fulfill their dreams and to nurture them on their journeys through publication, collaborating with them to ensure their story comes to life on the page.
