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 for 23 years 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 Sun Bookshop has one step at the entrance, and is wheelchair-accessible via the Sun Theatre foyer and throughout our shop. The Younger Sun is accessible via a ramp at the entrance, and throughout our shop.
