About us

Great Southern Press (GSP) was founded by Barry Wood in 1972. At the time, Mr Wood was working in the pipeline industry and was passionate about producing a publication that would help communicate important industry news across the sector. This publication started life as a small newsletter and eventually became GSP’s flagship, The Australian Pipeliner.

Originally trading under the name ‘Pipeline Publications’, this early iteration of GSP was focused on producing publications for Australia’s oil and gas industry. In 1993, Pipeline Publications became the official publisher for the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association, marking the first in a number of successful partnerships with industry associations.

As a family owned business, these humble beginnings continue to play an important role in how GSP interacts with industry associations, event partners, and clients alike. GSP understands the passion of small business owners, and works hard to communicate news about advances in technology and the delivery of challenging projects to the broader industry.

GSP began formally working with the Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT) in 2004, and today produces fortnightly newsletters and quarterly print magazines that are exclusively endorsed by the association. In addition to these publications, GSP also produces a number events for the ASTT. This includes the ASTT’s biennial conference and exhibition, No-Dig Down Under, and quarterly Technical Forums in Victoria, New South Wales and New Zealand.
Today, GSP is a leading producer of B2B magazines and events, with a suite of publications, several partnerships with industry associations, and numerous successful conferences and exhibitions in Australia and around the world.
