You’re bound to find a great read among the thousands of books on offer this year – and pick up some bargain-priced clothing while you’re here!


It’s bookworm bliss in Bundaberg with table upon table overflowing with hardcovers and paperbacks from 50 cents each. Don’t forget to check out the $2 clothing sale, and stop for a bite in the cafe.


We have thousands of quality, pre-loved books up for grabs. You’ll find paperbacks and hardbacks, fiction and non-fiction, romance, reference books, cookbooks, children’s books, books on health and family, crafts and hobbies, puzzles and games, CDs, DVDS and much more. We also have quality, pre-loved clothing on sale for just $2 a pop. And our amazing Lifeline Telephone Crisis Support workers will be running a sausage sizzle and cafe, with coffee, tea and snacks. Entry is free and we take cash and card.
