Established by Stephen Matthews, 'Ginninderra Press, described in the Canberra Times as 'versatile and visionary', was set up in 1996 to provide opportunities for new and emerging authors as well as for authors writing in unfashionable genres or on unpopular subjects.' The Press's name is taken from an Aboriginal word Ginninderra said to mean 'throwing out little rays of light'. Ginninderra is part of the Belconnen region of the Australian Capital Territory in which Ginninderra Press operated for its first 12 years before moving to Port Adelaide, South Australia, in 2007. The Press operates 'without any direct subsidies from the public purse .... works requiring subsidies are of their nature likely to be only marginally commercially viable and subsidies encourage over-production.'
