Five favourite bookshops on the NSW South Coast

5favouritebookshopssouthcoastnswInspired by Buzzfeed’s 17 Spectacular Bookshops in Australia to See Before You Die post, I thought it was time to give my own neck of the woods a shout-out.

We are surprisingly well-serviced by fabulous bookshops down here on the south coast of NSW. We’ve got the beautiful ones, the friendly ones, the incredibly well-stocked ones, and the ones that combine all of that and more.

These are five of my favourites in this area:

boobook on owen, Huskisson: There’s something about the combination of carefully chosen books and the proximity of Jervis Bay that makes this little bookshop very, very seductive. It’s a lovely space, with a terrific range of children’s books. My boys love popping in for a browse.

Dymocks Books, Nowra: I love the team in here. Love. They are so knowledgeable and so happy to chat about books, and the customer service is always A-1. These guys are readers and it shows. A huge selection of books and staff who will happily help with recommendations and suggestions.

Harbour Bookshop, UlladullaPlugged in to the local community, with an excellent selection of books and events to match. Perfect for your holiday read, a special gift or thoughtful advice on books you’ll love!

Dean Swift Books, Nowra: With an ever-changing calendar of events, this indie bookshop works hard to promote books and authors in the region. The friendly staff are ever-helpful and my boys have a particular love of the ABC Shop incorporated inside (Doctor Who, anyone?).

Anne’s Second-Hand Bookshop: If you love a good browse in a second-hand bookshop, don’t go past Anne’s! Really well-curated selection of used books and lovely, friendly staff as well.
