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!
