Book Barn

The centrepiece of Bendooley Estate, our Book Barn has long been the home of Berkelouw Books. Built early last century and recently transformed, it features exposed timber beams, cathedral ceilings, huge rustic iron pendant lights and an enormous stone fireplace.

This multi-functional space operates as a bookshop by day, as well as housing the Bendooley Estate Restaurant and Bar. For weddings and special events, the dozens of bookshelves are rolled away to the end of the Book Barn, transforming it into a magical book-lined space. It also houses a bridal parlour, dance floor, elegant bathroom facilities and link to our newly built Cellar Door.


Books & Gifts

The Berkelouw Book Barn is Australia’s most atmospheric bookshop. With its cathedral ceilings and huge, timber-lined spaces filled with rows and rows of new, second-hand, rare and antiquarian books, bibliophiles are well and truly catered for. But if it is the perfect, thoughtful gift you are seeking, look no further. Our buyers scale the globe for the original, the quirky, the pretty, the unusual and the just plain fabulous!

Drop in and be entranced. Have coffee, enjoy the ambience and take in the fresh country air. At Bendooley Estate, books and gifts are just the beginning.
