Caryota Book Exchange Reviews
My husband and I visited this place for the first time today - we opened the unassuming front door and found ourselves in an amazing adventure house of books. I’d be surprised if you couldn’t find... more »
Fabulous book tour and recommendations. Definitely worth a visit while in Darwin. And Sharon knows her books - so ask her anything! more »
This is a hidden gem! My daughters and I spent hours browsing the wide (well organized) selection of books and reading them in the various nooks (while I had a delicious coffee). We left with several books each and will return to exchange them per the store's great program. Sharon, the owner is a delight an so very helpful. I highly recommend Caryota!
A wonderful personal experience browsing the shelves! and just the place to buy presents for the grandchildren, now that most of them can read! I like to buy second-hand books for them for their birthdays as I hope it will instill in them the beauty of pre-loved books and the value of stories from the past. Thank you for being there, Caryota Book Exchange!
