Book Clubs

Servicing and supporting your BOOK CLUB wherever you’re located


Each month we will select four books for your BOOK CLUB to choose from.


Selected books will be supplied at 20% discount (plus postage of $9.99^ to individual members or $19.99 to the nominated recipient from the club if your club is outside of our Central Vic home delivery zone)


Titles will be recently published and where possible will come with READING NOTES to use as a guide for discussion.



We will always include Australian books by Australian authors as part of the selection and if we can, we’ll pursue the opportunity for your group to ‘book a 15 minute’ QnA with the author via ZOOM*.

Note that Northern Books will make these arrangements for you


*Australian authors only, and subject to availability

^Book Clubs in the Castlemaine region (within 30Km) will be home delivered free

COST:    $799 pp

This cost is based on 6 people with no shared bedroom accommodation.

Please contact us to discuss the number of Book Clubbers you'd like to accommodate as we can arrange shared rooms or additional rooms on the property if your numbers are higher. 
Fewer guests would mean a slightly higher PP charge to cover the accommodation costs.

Rest assured we will refund your payment if the event is affected by COVID-19.
