We offer two options:
Firstly, our own Farrells Vouchers, which can only be redeemed at our shop. They can be made to any value of your choice.
Secondly, we sell Australian Booksellers’ Association (ABA) vouchers, which can be redeemed at many bookshops around Australia and are a great gift for friends & family who live interstate. These vouchers come in predetermined values and change cannot be given.

Gift vouchers cannot currently be used for online purchases.


We have a range of quality paper available if you need that book wrapped for a special occasion. Ask our friendly staff at the time of purchase, and we will gladly wrap your book, time permitting!
From time to time we may ask for a gold coin donation for our wrapping service, with all proceeds going to an identified charity.
