We take great pride in our commitment to providing exceptional services and transformative impact. Don't just take our word for it – hear directly from our valued clients and partners.

We find these publications very useful to have a full rundown of all the Victorian School Principals and leadership teams all in one easy to read book. It’s a great thing to have as a quick reference guide.

The Australian Public Schools Yearbook is a free, informative, quick reference guide to other schools, products and services. It will be staying on my desk from now on.

“What a great little resource!

This has helped us quickly and easily locate schools interstate with whom we would like to professionally share.

It has taken the guess work out of our searches.

Kawana Waters State College

College Principal

I find the Australian Municipal Yearbook very useful, it is kept within hands reach and is regularly used to gain contact information / details for other Councils in our state and New South Wales. i also find the advertisements extremely useful when sourcing products and services. The index at the back enables quick referencing.

Bulloo Shire Council

Governance & Administration

I find that the Municipal Yearbook is a handy tool for the use of finding people in similar positions to myself if you are wanting to either network or ask any questions that may be able to be solved quickly or if you are looking for a particular supplier that are always a bit harder to find in the rural areas.

Gannawarra Shire Council


The book has been hot property in my office. We all find it very useful in being able to speak to counterparts in different jurisdictions. it has saved us all a lot of time, effort and stress! I look forward to receiving the extra copies. Thanks very much.

Health & Safety Queensland, Department of Justice and Attorney-General

Compliance & Business Engagement Governance

I do find it useful to identify various Queensland Council in particular to get contact details and locations. Even though we went through amalgamations back in 2008 (and de amalgamations more recently) it is sometimes difficult to recall the names of the new Councils, so the book is handy in that regard too.

Cassowary Coast Regional Council

Human Resources

Just wanted to provide some feedback on the Australian Municipal Yearbook, I have it on my desk next to my phone in easy reach. It’s great for referencing other Councils, in particular other officers in a similar role to myself. Handy little publication!

Coorong District Council

I find the Australian Municipal Handbook a great tool for sourcing the correct officers in other surrounding Shires, Towns & City Councils. As we are a rural based Shire we tend to seek staff from surrounding areas to share training to make up numbers, have machinery demonstrations and ask for information on how they do things etc.

I have worked in Local Government for 11 years and have developed some good contacts but as you are probably aware people that work in Local Government tend to relocate to other councils throughout their careers so it helps to keep in touch that way also.

Works Dept

Our team uses the publication to guide callers to other relative Council contacts when needed.

City of Playford

Planning & Building

As discussed I find the Australian Municipal Yearbook very useful. I keep it on my desk where other staff members have access to it. I only recently used it in place of the internet for other local government contacts and address. It’s a more up to date & reliable version.

Willoughby City Council

Community Services

I worked with Aberdeen House in my role of On Road Sales Manager at The One Stop Shop Australia. The account manager is a consummate professional with a great work ethic and with the staff at Aberdeen House have been an absolute pleasure to deal with as we have advertised in the Victorian Government Listing. Aberdeen House and the account manager prepared our advertising to be comprehensive and meet the unique needs of each Government Department we were wanting to do business with.

He also sought out other listings, online login’s and additional books to ensure that The One Stop Shop Australia was covering all area’s within local and state government departments decision makers, making it easy to get the right person for the right department. I would recommend Aberdeen House without any hesitation.


One Stop Shop

The Australian Municipal Yearbook is a useful sales tool to identify key council contacts who are relevant to our business. Our reps carry a copy around the country. The database is updated on a yearly basis – it is great to access the latest information. The back page is a good location. We also use the database to help form DM campaigns.


Street Furniture

As Corporate and Government Business Manager for New Holland Agriculture, I work with our Dealer network, in promoting our Products and Services, to Councils and Government Bodies across Australia. The Local Government Yearbook is the publication I turn to on a daily basis, sourcing information such as Council addresses, phone numbers, and contacts. This “one stop shop” makes my job that much easier.


New Holland

Aberdeen House has gone out of their way to help the Australian Regional Tourism Network by providing us with access to the national database of Local Government Managers. The assistance Aberdeen House has given us as a company is invaluable and means we can now have meaningful and cost effective communication with Local Governments.

Australian Regional Tourism Network

Around 85% of our business income comes from government departments. So it made perfect sense for us to advertise in both Aberdeen House’ publications. This has been part of a national expansion program for our organisation, which has included engagement on all levels with municipal, state and federal government entities.

Our exposure through both Yearbooks has been enormously worthwhile and has dovetailed into our broader marketing plan very elegantly. I have no hesitation in recommending Aberdeen House Yearbooks to any organisation interested in increasing their connection with local, state or federal government buyers.

I wanted to congratulate the team on the production of a fantastic publication. You really have created a great “one stop shop” for contact information for those involved in procurement in both Local and Central Government. I am frequently approached with advertising and branding opportunities. Your team’s professionalism and the overall quality of your publication, made it a very easy decision to commit to 6 full page advertisements. I am sure our clientele in the public sector will find this to be a great work resource and for many users it will be a daily reference source that is likely to save countless hours and a heap of frustration. Well done to the team…
