New Farm

Iwan Bookshop is a charming, independent, bilingual bookstore in New Farm offering books in English and Persian with an on-site cafe and gift shop. 

Iwan Bookshop, New Farm

Nestled on busy Brunswick Street in a quaint cottage with wide veranda, Iwan provides a quiet retreat where book lovers can browse the excellent selection of award-winning and best-selling books, and enjoy a well-brewed coffee, roasted locally on the Sunshine Coast by Signature Roasters, or a pot of Persian saffron tea served with nabātsaffron-flavoured Persian rock candy - used to sweeten the tea.  

Iwan Bookshop, New Farm

The warm and inviting space boasts bookshelves on both sides of the room, with English books for children and young adults on one side, and Persian books for all ages (including Farsi, Kurdish and Dari) on the other.
