BCEC, South Brisbane
The much-loved Lifeline Bookfest returns to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre for 4 massive days, from June 17-20, with plenty of pre-loved books to explore, plus new features including the addition of Lifeline's very own Comic-fest!
Queensland's largest, second-hand book sale will boast more than 1 million books, starting as low as $2.50, with an abundance of great reads across all genres, including cooking, health and fitness, gardening, history, biography, children’s books, and much more.
This Bookfest will also have a lot of new exciting features including a dedicated Comic-fest section where you'll find over 10,000 comics, manga, graphic novels, memorabilia, and many other collectable items for fans to explore. Lifeline encourages customers to get into the spirit of Comic-fest and dress up as their favourite character.
Other new instalments include twice as many registers and 590 new trolleys which will improve the Bookfest experience. Plus, keep a lookout for special guests appearing throughout Bookfest - you might run into Ian Healy or Alastair Lynch!
While the free-to-enter event is usually held across 10 days, this Bookfest will run across 4 days only, so don't miss the chance to stock up on reads at one of the biggest book events in the Southern Hemisphere.
Nice to know - Bookfest is Lifeline Queensland’s biggest fundraising event of the year with profits made going to directly support the critical work of the 24/7 crisis support line.
Need to know - Lifeline will have $1 bags available for purchase, or people can bring their own.
