Abbey's Bookshop

Abbey's at 131 York Street (next to QVB) is an Aladdin's cave for readers and Sydney's much-loved indie bookshop since 1968 ~ Where ideas grow.

Abbey's Bookshop at 131 York Street has over 100,000 books for you to browse, touch, smell, and has long been Sydney's gem for book lovers.

Tucked alongside the Queen Victoria Building, Abbey's has become an institution among readers and seekers of knowledge looking for those hard to find books. Our bookshop remains a favourite of many of Australia's academics and authors, politicians and lawmakers.

It's a 'must' if your interests are in history, science, crime fiction or literature. And more treasures lie upstairs - thousands of fantasy and science fiction books in our GALAXY Bookshop, plus an enormous range of fiction in other languages within our Language Book Centre.

Traditional book shop located within modern Sydney CBD. Upstairs, you will find more books and other collectible gems like Funko Pop and novelty items.


Thanks for taking the time to give us a nod Joel. Tip of the hat to you Sir.

Great shop with old fashioned customer service, it's saying a lot that this place is still running in the day and age of e-books ( something I can't get used to). I wanted to find Indonesian language books to brush up on my school girl Indonesian and they have a very well stocked foreign language section. Good prices and they will order something in if required.

Amazing little gem in the hearth of Sydney. You can find each and every book you're looking for at this bookshop. I was looking for a very rare and old cook book a few years ago and never managed to find it. Then one afternoon while searching for a good novel I stumbled upon that cook book and was delighted to see it was in perfect condition and seemed to be fairly priced. The lady was very helpful and friendly. She even offered to remove the book from the shelves until I had the money ready. Simply the best!
