With over 25 years in Canberra, this locally-owned Dymocks franchise is recognised as Canberra’s favourite bookstore. The experienced and well-read staff can provide recommendations and also help find great reads and track down rare gems. The shop has recently undergone a major expansion and redesign and offers the very best shopping experience for book-lovers and gift-buyers alike. The new location in the lower ground area (adjacent to David Jones) is proving very convenient for Canberrans and the extra space available means an even wider range of books and gifts is offered. Come in and say hello and enjoy the browsing!
