Popular 3-Day Book Fair Returns to Castle Hill!

Choose from over 60,000 Books, CDs, DVDs and Computer Games and help Lifeline save lives

Last year's three-day book fair at Oakhill College proved such a hit that it is now a permanent fixture on Lifeline's events calendar. So make sure you mark your diary for your chance to pick up a bag of bargains among the 60,000 books that will be on sale in over 50 general and specialist categories, including: Art, Military, History & Politics, Science & Technology, SciFi/Fantasy, Crime Fiction, Romance, Memoir & Biography, Literature, Travels & Adventures, Gardening, Craft and Text books. The enormous, diverse collection of reading, picture and popup books for young people — from infants to late-teens — is a special drawcard for families.


A breathtaking assortment of special editions will also be on offer on a first-come-first-served basis. Among the rare volumes to be snapped up are:

  • Slipcased classics: War and Peace; The Iliad and The Odyssey; The Greatest Benefit to Mankind

  • Art: The Sistine Chapel; Still Life: A History; monographs on Dali, Henry Moore, Rembrandt, Sydney Parkinson (artist of Cook's Endeavour voyage)

  • Architecture: The Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture

  • Natural history: Museum – The Macleays, their Collections and the Search for Order; PRINTED Images in Colonial Australia

  • Australian pictorial history: Old Sydney; Railway Portraits

  • Religion: Treasures of the Buddha

  • Food and cooking: Bush Tucker; David Thompson's Thai Street Food

  • Fashion: The Golden Age of Couture; Fashion – Australian Memories in Black and White

  • Comics: DC Comics – A Visual History

  • Children's: Anatomy – A Cutaway Look inside the Human Body, a miscellany of popup books

  • Stamp, postcard and coin collections

    Whether you're a serious book collector, ardent book lover or occasional reader, you will delight in browsing through the staggering array of high-quality items — including CDs and DVDs — on offer at a fraction of retail price.

    Don't miss this fantastic community event and the opportunity to start on some early Christmas shopping and/or to stock up on your summer reading. 'Before coming here I would never have dreamed of giving pre-loved books as gifts, but I've just changed my mind' and 'I can't believe the quality and the amazing prices', are two comments we regularly hear from first-time visitors to our book fairs.

    And remember: every cent you spend will go towards Lifeline H2H's suite of services, including the 24/7 telephone crisis hotline 13 11 14, community aid, and group counselling for people struggling with gambling, hoarding, financial issues, suicide bereavement and much more.
