The Australian and New Zealand Amateur Publishing Association (or Australian and New Zealand Amateur Press Association) is a bi-monthly APA for, but not limited to, Australian and New Zealand fans. Minac is 6 self-written A4 pages every six months. The membership cap is (and always has been) thirty members. Mailings tend to be about 500 (!) pages.

It was started by Leigh Edmonds. It began in October 1968 as APA-A, but was renamed ANZAPA in February 1969. Its early history is recounted in John Bangsund's Anzapa Book. It was still active in 2021, but went electronic at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic due to the extreme slowness of mail, both within Australia and internationally.

The current official bloody editor, or OBE, of ANZAPA is David Grigg.
