Australian Independent Bookseller

All the best books from your local independent bookseller

About Our Store

Welcome to The Bookshop Bowral and The Bookshop Kiama

We have been providing a book haven for readers in the beautiful Southern Highlands since 1992 and in the picturesque coastal town of Kiama since 2006.

Our bookshops are friendly and welcoming, relaxing spaces, our range carefully selected with all book lovers in mind. We invite you to spend a while browsing - just maybe you will find that book you didn't know you needed! Our experienced booksellers can assist you to choose a book for your own reading pleasure, to find the perfect gift or to track down and order a hard to find or out of stock title. We are proud to be part of our local communities and enjoy participating in and supporting community activities. We sponsor a number local charities and school programmes.

Join our The Bookshop Bookclub Rewards program to earn points towards vouchers and be advised of special offers and events.  Membership is free -  just ask one of our staff next time you purchase a book.

We run an extensive program of events regularly hosting in-store signings, author talks, Centennial Supper Club and partnering with other Southern Highland associations to bring guest authors to our region.

To find out about events look at the store events page of this website, find us on Facebook at, see the in-store advertising or sign up to our e-mail list.  

We are the official booksellers for The Southern Highland Writers' Festival.
