Giramondo Publishing is an award-winning Australian literary small press. It is a publisher of poetry, fiction and non-fiction by Australian and overseas writers, and works in translation from Chinese, German, Spanish, French and Hindi. It also published HEAT magazine in two series from 1996 to 2012.

Giramondo was founded by Ivor Indyk in 1995, initially publishing the first series of literary journal HEAT. In 2001 it moved with Indyk to the University of Newcastle. In 2005, it moved again to join the Writing and Society Research Group at the University of Western Sydney, where it is currently based. It has also enjoyed support from the Australia Council and Arts NSW.

Giramondo began its publication of poetry and fiction in 2002. The imprint has published many award-winning titles, by such authors as Alexis Wright, Brian Castro, Judith Beveridge, Jennifer Maiden and Gerald Murnane. In recent years it has presided over the development of a literature based in Western Sydney, through the publication of prize-winning books by Fiona Wright, Felicity Castagna, Luke Carman and Mohammed Ahmad.
