About our Store

Bay Life Books is an independently owned bookstore in Dunsborough’s bayside town. Centrally located overlooking the Lions Park green we are easily accessed by locals and visitors alike. We feel our role as Dunsborough’s only bookshop is vital to provide our local community with access to books and the opportunities they bring. We encourage reading as a hobby, an educational tool, and an essential part of developing children’s imaginations.

“Keep reading. It’s one of the most marvellous adventures that anyone can have.”  - Lloyd Alexander -

Upon entering the store, you will discover our shop space has an open and relaxed atmosphere. We invite families to feel at home and provide a play corner for the little ones to play while mum and dad are free to browse.

We aim to provide a wide range of books, gifts and games for all ages and occasions. We also stock a beautiful range of greeting cards.
