Hipster territory
Jun 2020
Yarraville was once a working class suburb like nearby Footscray. Yarraville is rapidly gentrifyinng and is now prime hipster territory. The Sun Bookshop has a very good range of books, and some interesting book launches. Parking can be difficult.

Bookshop has a wide range
Oct 2019
When we are in the Yarraville area, we often drop in to the Sunb Bookshop. It has a great range of books. We first visited for a book signing by Barry Hall, legendary Bulldogs (AFL) footballer, and we've been going back ever since.. By the way, parking can be tight at peak periods.

Comfortable browsing
Mar 2017 • Solo
I love this bookshop. Old world charm, with a small selection of a wide variety to choose from. It's attached to the Sun crime a, so sometimes I just browse whilst waiting for the movie to start, but more often than not, I find something really interesting to take home. I'm often surprised by the little treasures I find there. There is even a children's bookshop ... in a different store close by, so no bored, noisy children crawling under foot.

Every good suburb deserves a serious bookshop
Aug 2016
Yarraville is the place to be, it's going ahead in leaps and bounds. The Sun Bookshop, and its offspring the Younger Sun are a great attribute to the suburb. They have a really good range of books and often have interesting book launches. Every good suburb deserves a good bookshop and in Yarraville, the Sun Bookshop is it. The young, and rhe young at heart, will enjoy he Younger Sun. The Sun Bookshop is on my itenerary every time I go to Yarraville.

My grandaughters

We have visited the shop on numerous occasions and they always find something they cannot find anywhere else. I am always happy if I can buy them something other than lollies. Some popular teenage books are available before being released to other outlets. They love it and I recommend you have a look.

Be a book worm at the Sun Bookshop
May 2016 • Friends
I love dropping into the Sun Bookshop in Yarraville next to the Sun Theatre. What a wonderful way to spend time browsing and purchasing a book or two while waiting to see a movie. A wonderful array of classics, biographies, new releases and children's books. Also,there is a good selection of funny greeting cards to make you chuckle out loud. 😊

Great little book shop
Feb 2016
Great little bookshop attached to the sun theatre, with a great range of cookbooks, non-fiction and fiction titles.
It is a great place to browse or pick up a new read.
