Ten Bag Press is a publisher based in Ballarat, Victoria, specialising in rural history and corporate history books. Our first project was the book Manangatang, which was produced in conjunction with renowned photographer Andrew Chapman and was released in 2011.


Our recent publications include Quilpie: A pictorial history of an iconic Queensland outpost, and For Mutual Good: The story of CUA, which was published in mid-2017 to celebrate the 70th birthday of Australia’s largest credit union. Our latest book is They’re Racing at Manangatang, which celebrates one of Australia’s most famous once-a-year race meetings. Boasting beautiful photography by Noel Butcher, Andrew Chapman and Jaime Murcia, and brilliant design by Phil Campbell, the book can now be purchased from this website and bookshops across Victoria. Looking further ahead, our most ambitious project yet, a photographic documentary of Victoria’s Mallee region, has commenced. The Mallee: A journey through the small towns of north-west Victoria, will be released in November 2019.

Having commissioned Ten Bag Press to publish histories of Victoria’s Rural Finance Corporation and CUA, I would highly recommend them. Their team is genuinely curious about a range of subjects and is very thorough when it comes to producing top quality publications.
