Lifeline Queensland’s beloved Rockhampton Bookfest is back for another year (with a sneaky little $2 clothing sale along for the ride). Lose yourself in the tables upon tables of pre-loved books and maybe find a last-minute gift for Mother’s Day.
Dive into some great second-hand reads from as little 20 cents each. Whether it’s Australiana, cookbooks or sci-fi, you’re sure to find something to float your boat. Plus, there are DVDs and puzzles. And it’s all for a good cause – funds raised go towards our 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Support Line. By purchasing books – and clothes – at Lifeline Bookfest Rockhampton, you are helping us to save lives, and we can’t thank you enough.
When: Friday, May 5, to Saturday, May 6, 9am-4pm daily.
