The Mad Hatters Bookshop, Manly

The Mad Hatter: "Have I gone mad?"

Alice: "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."

The Mad Hatters Bookshop is an independently run bookstore that aims to 'create an enchanting space for visitors young and old' - and that is exactly what they have achieved. Beautifully decorated inside and out, even older customer's will struggle not to fall into a sense of excitement when they walk through the door.

Kids will love following the yellow brick road that leads into the store, where they can browse a huge variety of children's literature, enjoy the creative displays, and curl up with a good book in their very own wonderland!


The rear of the store has been magically transformed into a children's fairy tale reading nook, with an enchanting mural covering the entire back wall.

The magic is completed with a fluffy "grass" carpet, comfy toadstools, wooden log shaped pillows and various cuddly, forest pals- the perfect place to get lost in a good book whilst mum and dad browse the shelves.
