The fair, which is organised by secondhand and special booksellers from The Basin and Kallista, has become well known around the state and visitors travel from interstate to enjoy the thrill of adding to their book collections. With thousands of books to choose from, including used, rare, hard-to-find and out-of-print, there will be many to suit every visitor. Bring plenty of bags to carry your purchases home.
