ACP Magazines (formerly Australian Consolidated Press) was an Australian media company. It published the Australian Women's Weekly and the Australian edition of Woman's Day.

Consolidated Press was formed in 1936, combining ownership of The Daily Telegraph and Frank Packer's Australian Women's Weekly. It was renamed Australian Consolidated Press (ACP) in 1957, and acquired The Bulletin in 1960.

The Daily Telegraph was sold to News Limited in 1972; the same year ACP founded Cleo and took over Publishers Holdings (including Australian House & Garden, Wheels, and others).[1][2] Two years later, Frank Packer died, and his son Kerry took over the company.

In 1988, ACP acquired Fairfax's magazines (including Woman's Day, People, Dolly, and Good Housekeeping).

In 1994, ACP merged with the Nine Network to form Publishing and Broadcasting Limited. In 1999, PBL acquired Crown Limited, and in 2002, it combined ACP and Nine into a new division, PBL Media. CVC Capital Partners acquired PBL Media in 2007.

On 4 September 2012, Nine Entertainment Co. announced that it was selling ACP Magazines to Bauer Media Group for an undisclosed sum,[3] with the sale completed on 1 October 2012. Bauer then ended the use of the ACP name.[4]

The publisher had many tie-ins with other Nine Entertainment Co. companies, such as Nine Network programs (Burke's Backyard and Good Medicine) and the Magshop web service which is now operated by Bauer Media Group.
