Where Ideas Grow

INDIGENOUS LITERACY

Growth through literature is something we truly believe in and Abbey's is a proud supporter of the INDIGENOUS LITERACY FOUNDATION.

WATCH A WONDERFULLY HEARTWARMING VIDEO: Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) long-time supporter Archie Roach and ILF Ambassadors Jessica Mauboy, Andy Griffiths, Shelley Ware, Anita Heiss, Natalie Ahmat, Gregg Dreise, Jared Thomas, Alison Lester, Josh Pyke and co-patron June Oscar AO all share their insights and stories of community engagement. And Jessica Mauboy sings a stunning rendition of My Island Home.

The aim is to inspire broader Australia about the value of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' first languages and why learning in language is important.

It's a beautifully produced, heartfelt video showing the children, teachers and supporters - and their landscape and communities - as they speak about the work of the ILF and what these books mean to them - passion & fun!

COVID-19 DELAYS UPDATES:

Our online store is powering along, but here's a few things to note. In Stock items will ship immediately, however items that need to come in from our suppliers may be subject to disruption, so your patience is appreciated.

LENGTHY DELAYS: OVERSEAS BOOKS NOW COMING BY SEA: Books from overseas can normally take 4 weeks or more to arrive here. Unfortunately, international air freight has been disrupted by the pandemic so that many books are now coming via sea and are generally taking over 8 weeks to arrive into store. A title's supplier might estimate as little as 6 weeks, or it could be 12 weeks or longer but we'll update you as soon as we know!

AUSPOST: EXPRESS POST UPDATE: AusPost have temporarily suspended their Express Post guarantee. The Express Post service continues to be our fastest postal delivery option for our customers – and we'll continue to prioritise these deliveries. They just may not be delivered next business day every time.

AUSPOST: OUTGOING INTERNATIONAL PARCELS DELAYS: We have been advised of delays of between 5-15 BUSINESS DAYS on parcels leaving Australia.

AN ALADDIN'S CAVE FOR READERS

Nestled beside the Queen Victoria Building...

Abbey's Bookshop at 131 York Street has become an institution among readers and knowledge seekers looking for those hard to find books. Abbey's remains a favourite of many of Australia's academics and authors, politicians and lawyers.

We're a 'must' if your interests are in...

...history, science, crime fiction or literature. Our customers often express their surprise and delight at finding books they were unaware of, whether from smaller publishers or sourced from overseas.

And more treasures lie upstairs...

...Thousands of fantasy and science fiction books in our GALAXY Bookshop, plus an enormous range of fiction in other languages within our Language Book Centre.

Abbey's really is an Aladdin's cave for readers!
