In 1890 he wrote the libretto for a comic opera, Sylvia, which was published and produced at Adelaide in 1890. In 1894 he published On the Wallaby- or, Through the East and Across Australia, an account of the travels of himself and his brother, including a description of their journey across Australia from Cooktown to Adelaide.

He was once well known for his series of five novels about Doctor Nikola, an occultist anti-hero seeking immortality and world domination. His other works include: Dr. Nikolas Experiment (1899), A Bid for Fortune- or, Dr. Nikolas Vendetta (1895), The Duchess of Wiltshires Diamonds (1897), Pharos the Egyptian (1899), A Sailors Bride (1899), My Strangest Case (1901), and Connie Burt (1903).
