Sharon Ninham has purchased the stock from Gordon's Book Exchange at Casuarina Village and moved it to her premises at Coconut Grove.

The layout is friendly and inviting with two rooms that are spacious neat and tidy, with fully stocked book shelves.

The book shop boasts an outdoor area for relaxing reading and there is a state of the art coffee machine which also makes, tea, hot chocolate etc.

People are encouraged to come in and browse, purchase a book and a delicious coffee made with fresh ground beans or perhaps a cuppa tea and enjoy the ambiance of the beautiful outside covered area.

There are book specials every day with popular authors retailing at $6 or less per book. If the book you are looking for is not in stock Sharon will help you with sourcing it through the internet.

Caryota Book Exchange is closed Sunday, Monday and Public Holidays, however Sharon will still be treating people with Ka Huna Massage most mornings and on Saturdays.

We are dog friendly, feel free to bring your well behaved family member on a lead to enjoy the atmosphere, we have fresh water and doggie bags on hand (closed for the wet season), will re-open 1st May, inform Sharon at reception and she will admit them through the side gate. Dogs not allowed indoors.

Come on in after your workout at Yoga Space, (same complex) and browse for a book before heading off.

Eat @ Martin's is a popular vegetarian cafe two doors down, pop in and see us on your way home.

Do call into Caryota Book Exchange and see for yourself. There is nothing quite like it anywhere else in Darwin. Not only does it have a beautiful user friendly layout, but also the exquisite courtyard patio where one can sit in comfortable chairs and enjoy a delicious beverage whilst reading.

Sharon looks forward to welcoming you there and enjoying this beautiful space with you. Oh & another room will be opened in the New Year.

  • 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!
