Book havens for readers

An essential destination for visitors to the beautiful Southern Highlands, The Bookshop Bowral has been at the heart of the community since 1992. 


And The Bookshop Kiama, part of the picturesque South Coast, provides welcome respite for visitors and locals alike.

"We pride ourselves on stocking beautiful books, carefully curated."

Our experienced booksellers are always on hand to make a personal recommendation or help choose the perfect gift. And we specialise in tracking down and ordering titles that are hard to find.


Our shops are friendly and welcoming places for booklovers of all ages and interests. You’re sure to find what you’re looking for on our shelves. We hope you’ll also find something you didn’t know you were looking for! There’s plenty of space for browsing.

A community of booklovers

Members of our Bookclub Rewards program earn points with each book they buy, to receive a rewards voucher. It’s free to join – just ask one of our booksellers next time you’re in the shop.


We’re proud to be part of our local community by supporting local charities, special events and school programs.
