Riverbend Books opened its doors in 1998 on the corner of Oxford and Cambridge Streets. The name Riverbend harkens back to the early days in Bulimba when Indigenous Australians called the area Tugulawah, which translates as Riverbend.
Riverbend is proud to be part of this community. Many of our customers love to travel here by CityCat or ferry and wander up the street to visit us. The ambience of the shop is warm and friendly with a beautiful deck out the front where you can enjoy some lovely light, fresh meals and of course great coffee or a glass of Australian wine.
The bookshop runs an extensive program of author events, poetry evenings, workshops for children and bookclubs. Bookchats are widely popular.These involve a staff member presenting book recommendations for your bookclub, social or professional group.
