Bundaberg Bookfest beckons bookworms

Lifeline Queensland’s beloved Bundaberg Bookfest is on again, with more than 230 tables of pre-loved books to tempt bookworms of all ages.

Pick up some first-rate second-hand reads from as little as 50 cents apiece. We have a huge variety of books on offer in loads of categories. Plus, there are CD's, DVD's, games, puzzles and Lego. And it’s all for a good cause – funds raised go towards our 13 11 14 Lifeline Crisis Support Line. By purchasing books at Lifeline Bookfest Bundaberg, you are helping us to save lives. Thank you!
