The Bookshop at Caloundra

The BookShop at Caloundra has proudly served the book-readers of Queensland's Sunshine Coast since 1980.

Because we are an independent bookseller, you will find the difference is clear when you are welcomed into the store. Proprietor's Graeme and Chris Bowden and their dedicated team remain familiar and friendly faces to regulars, annual holiday-makers and newcomers to Caloundra.

'The BookShop at Caloundra' is characterised by quality titles, experienced advice, ability to stock your favourites (and ours) as well as being active members of the Caloundra Community. Authors and publishers regularly seek opportunities for book signings and calendar event with Graeme so add us on Facebook or LinkedIn for information on any upcoming events.

The Really Good Bookshop

The Really Good Bookshop is a family owned and operated retail independent bookstore situated at Hillcrest in Queensland.

 

We trade in and sell new and used books in all genres.

 

We opened in 2006 primarily as a used book store. On opening day our shelves held about 15,000 titles but since then we have expanded and now hold well over 100,000 new and used titles on our shelves - This of course now includes the entire collection of Willow the Wonderer picture books!

The best bit - our customers can also trade in their used books for store credit! Every bookworms dream :)

Foodworks Longreach

Foodworks Longreach is the heart of the community. We pride ourselves on providing good old fashioned service, quality & fresh produce, and a little bit of something for everyone.
 

In the words of one of the customers:

"Well the foodworks in Longreach would have to be one of the best small personally owned stores we have ever been in. They run rings around the large commercial stores and their customer service is so welcoming and friendly. As you walk in the door your greeted by all staff that are on the floor with a hello or help finding something if you need it. Must say that goes a long way in my book ... Thanks for showing us that there is still that good old Aussie friendly service alive and well."
