IF YOU are looking for the perfect excuse to visit the hinterland and get away from the busy coastal strip, and help out charity, then a trip to Nambour this weekend is an absolute must with the ever-popular Lifeline Bookfest on at the Nambour Showgrounds.  

If you are looking for a novel idea this Easter? How about hunting for a literary gem among more than 200,000 offerings at Lifeline Bookfest Sunshine Coast? 

Division 10 Councillor David Law said a massive range of bargain books would be on sale at the four-day event from Friday, April 7, to Monday, April 10. With sale times being held from 9am to 4pm each day.  

“The Lifeline Bookfest is definitely a ‘write’ of passage that will open a can of bookworms,” Cr Law quipped.  
“Last year was the first time Bookfest was held at the Nambour Showgrounds, and we had more than 5,000 people attend. We’re expecting an even bigger turnout this year.” 

Along with a range of freshly stocked books, Bookfest will feature toys, puzzles, games, DVDs, records, and clothes on sale from $2.50. Lifeline Bookfest organisers have collaborated with the Apex Club of Nambour and other vendors to keep all bookworms well nourished. 

Ample onsite parking will be available via a gold coin donation and all funds raised from Bookfest will go towards Lifeline’s Crisis Support Line.  

Bookfest will run each day from 9am to 4pm.
