The village of Clunes is famous for its bookshops. From the collectables to the bargains, from the small shops to the large shops stocking thousands of titles.

In April 2012 Clunes gained International Organisation of Booktowns membership, becoming the 15th international booktown and the only booktown in the southern hemisphere.


Clunes is located 36 km north of Ballarat (30 minutes by car), and 142 km north-west of Melbourne (90 minutes by car).
