About Us

No trip to Yarraville would be complete without a visit to the Sun Bookshop – tucked into the gorgeous art deco Sun Theatre building, the shop is packed with well-chosen fiction, biography, history, travel, science and crime – and a great collection of beautiful art, photography and craft books.

There is also a selection of quirky and artistic cards. The booksellers are friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to help – be it with choosing a book or wrapping it up for a special occasion. If you can’t decide what you’d like, we also sell gift vouchers.

The Sun Bookshop has been operating since 1998 and is a favourite of the locals in this vibrant inner-city village community. We keep busy with many events and book launches as well as a popular monthly bookclub.

The Younger Sun started life in December of 2007 and has rapidly established itself as part of the rich life of the Yarraville community. Just a hop, skip and a jump down the road from the delightful Sun Bookshop, we cater for the young and the young at heart.

As one of the few specialist children’s bookstores in Melbourne our knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff are always on hand to offer advice and suggestions. We also have three book clubs that meet once a month.

At the Younger Sun we are always ready for that Saturday morning last-minute birthday present shop! Situated across the road from the Ballarat Street Park at 26 Murray Street, Yarraville, just 60 steps away from The Sun Bookshop.

To ensure the health and safety of both staff and customers, there will be strict guidelines in place:

  • there will be a limit of 5 customers per store at any one time,
  • mandatory hand sanitisation and masks upon entering each store, and
  • social distancing requirements while browsing and interacting with staff.
  • We are also still operating through our online store, over the phone and via email, with delivery options available.
