Hyams Publishing is a family-owned business operating since 2007 at Huskisson, NSW. After running an advertising agency in Canberra for many years, husband and wife team, Peter and Manuela Henry decided to make a 'seachange' and moved to the South Coast of NSW. They noticed that there was a need for a guide to the beaches of the South Coast so, with encouragement from the local Tourist Bureau, set about producing a beach guidebook.
This first beach guidebook 'Beaches of Jervis Bay and the Shoalhaven' sold out within a year, so it was quickly updated and reprinted along with other titles covering the other regions of the South Coast and subsequently Byron Bay & the Northern Rivers.
Each guidebook took about a year to produce as every beach had to be visited, photographed and carefully researched. All design, copywriting and photography (except for Mogo Zoo animal photos) was done in-house.
