This store has a massive selection of books covering most topics. The ideal place to shop for an unusual gift for those hard to by people. Right next to the Red Bridge.

Take the time to stop and browse through a diverse range of books including many on Tasmanian history, with a good coffee to boot. Don't then just drive off when finished, before you admire the handmade brick bridge built by the convicts, and read the...More

Little beauty of a shop with great selection of interesting old and new books. Beautifully presented in a large, cool, stone cellar. They also sell coffee but we didn't buy one. So glad we stopped!
