  • Whenever I do a day trip to Katoomba I will without fail spend a good hour looking around at the collection of books. Thinking what I could add to my personal collection. Amazing selection of books and vintage antiques to buy!
  • Awesome place! My favorite thing in the Blue Mountains. So many books on the lower level. I hope I'm able to go back again. Stay here we're terrific. Really helpful and great conversation.
