About Us

 Welcome to The Bookshop Darlinghurst!

For well over forty years The Bookshop Darlinghurst has been the most comprehensive source of books and other materials for Sydney and Australia's LGBTIQ+ communities. Located in the heart of Sydney's famous Oxford Street, close to Taylor Square and the Qtopia Sydney Museum, our shop has been a cherished hub for the local and international queer communities. If you pay us a visit in-store you'll be welcomed by our friendly, knowledgeable staff who will help you navigate our vast range of titles.

We also offer the very best of our range of titles on our website for those customers who prefer to shop online and highlight new releases and special offers regularly through our email newsletters and social media.

In June 2024, The Bookshop Darlinghurst was taken over by a new owner Charles Gregory who worked at The Bookshop when he was a student. Founding owner Les McDonald, who established the shop in 1982 with partner Wayne Harrison, has now retired.
