Rockhampton Bookfest

Thanks to your support, last year’s Lifeline Bookfest Rockhampton raised nearly $49,000 to fund the 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Line. We're back at the Rockhampton Showgrounds from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 May.


Rockhampton book lovers rejoice! Truckloads of books will be up for grabs from as little as 20c when Bookfest comes to town — plus clothing for $2 apiece.
