Read all about it!

The Lifeline Bookfest is a second hand book sale for book lovers young and old. They run all over Queensland, all throughout the year.


It’s bookworm bliss — each event has thousands of quality pre-loved books up for grabs at bargain prices! Plus, entry is free!


What’s so great about it?


There are heaps of great things about the Lifeline Bookfest!


We can spread our love of reading far and wide, and save books from land-fill, all while raising incredibly vital funds for Lifeline.


The Lifeline 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line offers potentially life-saving support to people who are suicidal or in crisis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


So you can load up on great reads while helping others — it’s the ultimate win-win.
