Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury presents

GIANT Book Fair 

The Concourse

Civic Pavilion

409 Victoria Ave, Chatswood.

Sat 18-Sun 19 February

Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury (H2H) kicks off the new year with its first giant book fair for 2023 at The Civic Pavilion, The Concourse, Chatswood. After last year's incredibly successful book fair at this ever-popular venue, this fantastic family fundraiser draws people of all ages from far and wide for their pick of high-quality second-hand books, DVDs, CDs, vintage vinyls, comics, games, puzzles and more at unbeatable prices!

With over 50 categories and more than 60,000 fiction and non-fiction books there will be something to discover for all generations.

Customers will need to get in quick as these books will fly out the door!

There will also be a fantastic selection of Jigsaw puzzles, adult Manga and comics, which are always a favourite.

There will be a wide range of children's books on offer too, beautifully presented in age groups and all in fantastic condition. The Young Adult section will also be jam-packed with books ranging from classics to recent editions.

Another popular category is secondary school study aids. February is the beginning of the school year so it is an ideal time to secure study material for the coming year, so we will be stocking a wide range of study aids for all high school topics.

There will be books to stimulate your interests, relax your mind or simply provide comfort. A range of interesting categories including Cooking, Gardening, Crafts & Hobbies, History, Politics, Psychology, Military, Transport, Travel, Sport, Religion and Lifestyle plus many more.

Our Sports category will be offering a selection of sports autobiographies to inspire our future Australian sporting legends in Swimming, Cricket, Tennis, Rugby Union, NRL,AFL, Golf and even Horse Racing. There will be books covering all sports from cricket to fishing and beautiful picture volumes that outline the history of sport legends like Donald Bradman and sporting events including the Olympic Games, Tour de France and many historic Test matches.

If you are looking for something more serious, then don't forget to browse through the most recent release fiction books, popular Sci-Fi/ Fantasy novels, crime thrillers and romance - all at our usual bargain prices!

This year, we will have a staggering 51 special books including some book sets for sale at the Book Fair which include rare, signed and first editions. All special books have been hand-selected and checked to ensure their authenticity and of course include some editions that are difficult to find!
