About Network Educational Australia










Network Educational Australia is a privately-owned family business headquartered on the Gold Coast, Queensland.  The directors are Robert and Robyn Watts who have been publishing, distributing and servicing educational needs since 1987.

Network Educational Australia (NEA) services schools, TAFEs, universities and other organisations  in the region via sales reps and in other areas with agents, website orders and promotional information. We have been servicing schools Australia-wide since 1982! We have a warehouse in Auckland to service customers in New Zealand and have educational content services to International Schools throughout the world.

Since 1982, Network Educational Australia (ABN: 76930312971; GITC: Q2616) has been supplying schools, colleges, libraries and institutions with educational materials - both print and digital content. We do this via our sales representatives, Scottsdale Drive Store, catalogues and webstore.

We have over 20 speciality Buying Guides that are sent to all schools and educators in Australia and New Zealand as well as to International Schools throughout the world. We ship nationally and internationally daily! And finally, our new website is designed for receipt of the latest publications from educational publishers and provides a continual update of new releases as these are published. You can order online via your account details and we will ship to your school or organisation. You will find our postage and discount pricing very competitive and much quicker and cheaper than ordering from overseas suppliers.

We are very proud of our staff and our reputation for relentless commitment to our customers in an ever-changing world. Contact us for any of your requirements and suggestions - we would love to hear from you!
