Lifeline's GIANT Book Fair

Rosewood Centre, Barker College

Unwin Road, Hornsby

Sat 11 to Mon 13 December


We're back, and as big as ever! We are super excited to announce that we will be holding a GIANT Book Fair just before Christmas at Barker College in Hornsby from Sat 11 to Mon 13 December. Visitors can expect to find all the quality, variety, and savings our book fairs are famous for - and at the perfect time to buy Christmas gifts.

Barker has very generously made their recently opened Rosewood Centre available for this 3-day event. The enormous new building will accommodate our vast stock and allow for required social distancing and a COVID-safe event. What's more, it has underground parking and its very own coffee shop!

On sale will be over 70,000 titles in more than 50 categories, including fiction, art, cooking, craft, history, sci-fi/fantasy, military, music, sport, transport, travel and children's/young adult books. We also have a staggering array of DVDs, CDs, vinyl, puzzles and games - all at unbeatable prices.

Over the three days, there will be a range of special books offered, including rare, first-edition, signed, collectible and previously unseen volumes. Here are just some of the unique items in store this year:


  • Wallaby Gold: 100 Years of Australian Test Rugby, Peter Jenkins; 270 illustrations, first edition and signed by 28 of the Wallaby heroes of 1991.

  • Joseph Lycett's, Convict Artist, in very fine condition. A lovely collection of views of early "Australia" as seen through the eyes of white settlers.

  • A beautiful box set of EPs of The Beatles - The Original Studio Recordings, Capitol Records (2009). All 13 original studio albums digitally remastered in stereo for superior sound, PLUS a 2-CD collection of all The Beatles' non-album singles and EPs (also digitally remastered), PLUS 13 mini-documentaries in the words of The Beatles themselves and Sir George Martin, the band's legendary producer.

  • A Day at elBulli, Ferran Adria, Publisher Phaidon Press, 2008. An insight into the ideas, method and creativity of Ferran Adria. The legendary, multi-award winning chef of the multi-awarded restaurant elBulli has signed this copy of his meticulous 528 page description of his methods, recipes and photography.

  • The Genus Cymbidium, Du Puy & Cribb, Publisher Kew Publishing 2007. Extensive fieldwork in tropical and subtropical Asia, the Malay Archipelago and Australia have allowed the examination of many species in their wild habitat, contributing valuable information concerning the ecology, natural variation of wild populations and conservation status.

    Events like the Giant Book Fair assist Lifeline to be there for those in need at every hour of every day*, so Lifeline sincerely thanks the public for its valued support, and looks forward to seeing you there!

    Lifeline H2H thanks Barker College for offering such a generous space to house the full glory of our Book Fair treasures.

    Saving Money. Saving the Planet. Saving Lives.

    *All proceeds from Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury's Book Fairs are an essential funding source for their many crisis support and suicide prevention services, including their 13 11 14 crisis line.
